Egg White Sandwich w/ Veggie Sausage Patty
I eat a lot of eggs. I love fried, sunny side up, over easy, scrambled, omelets, poached.. poached! And my go to breakfast is an (sometimes 1, most of the time 2) egg sandwich with mayo and cheese. But for between 323 to 260 obvious reasons, those are probably not the best way to start a Fast Day.
So I am trying out different variations on my go to breakfast.
Initially, I was a bit dismayed when I opened up the Morning Star Farms® Original Sausage Patty. The patty was TIE-knee, tiny. It's about the size of a silver dollar pancake, or an inch and a half in diameter. But once I assembled the sandwich it was ok.
I was also trying to refrain from using any oil when cooking my egg whites. It was a tricky endeavor but I think i found a good way to cook egg whites with water.
But the key to this sandwich was the harissa. It adds spice, depth and interest so you don't miss the egg yolk. The first time I ever had harissa was when I made All Veggie Harissa Pizza. Since then I've slathered it on sandwiches and mixed it with yogurt for a quick fried food dip. I'm not an expert on it and the only one I've ever had was one that I made myself. But this stuff is magical. It turns a plain Jane dish into a really awesome one that will make you enjoy every bite.
