Add this to your 5 minute recipes! This pesto-slathered healthy breakfast sandwich can be whipped up in minutes and offers a delicious spin on breakfast.
In the nearly 8 years of A Couple Cooks, we’ve never created 5 minute recipes. Because on one hand, calling something a 5 minute recipe can make it seem dumbed down and trivial, the exact opposite of our pretty simple philosophy. Cooking takes time, and it’s worth making time for. On the other hand, this breakfast sandwich absolutely deserves its 5 minute recipes moniker because it is truly quick. This is barely a recipe, but we’re posting it because if you’re anything like us, you’re always in need of creative ideas in the kitchen. With that in mind, we’ve got a 5 minute –yes, really 5 minute — healthy breakfast sandwich for you for those days you’re in need of a quick fix.
Making this breakfast sandwich
This 5 minute breakfast sandwich truly takes 5 minutes. That means you can whip it up in less time than it takes to run through the fast food drive through. And if you’re in a pinch, brinner to the rescue! It can double as a quick dinner for nights when you have no time to think. It pleases kids, and it’s easy enough for beginner cooks like college students. Basically: it pleases everyone!
Even better, healthy breakfast sandwich is seriously delicious. The flavor is incredible even though the prep time is super quick. What’s makes this healthy breakfast sandwich so special?
- Adding basil pesto brings big flavor in no time. Make sure to buy a high-quality pesto brand that you love.
- It’s a spin on a healthy breakfast sandwich; there’s no bacon, sausage or hollandaise, just 1 egg and some real, fresh flavors.
- You can use any baby greens; throw in a handful of greens from your farmer’s market.
- Speaking of, the farmer’s market is a great place to buy local eggs; eggs from happy chickens always taste better!
Step it up with biscuits
Of course, if you want to step this breakfast sandwich up a notch, serve it on our Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits! Pretty out of this world, if we do say so ourselves. (Of course then it’s not 5 minutes…but you can make them in advance!)
