Sometimes just getting out of bed can be a chore in itself. I find breakfast is sometimes the hardest meal to prepare in the morning. You don’t have the energy to create the healthy breakfast ideas you were fantasizing the night before. Your body wants food now!
You might even end up eating a bagel or something quick and often, unhealthy. My solution is to prep your breakfast beforehand. Here’s a Starbucks meal prep idea that will not only fit the bill for healthy breakfast ideas, but it’s also prepped to impress.
Starbucks breakfast sandwiches
It’s not just their signature coffee, Starbucks breakfast sandwiches also have me lining outside their café. You can prepare your Starbucks breakfast sandwiches three days in advance. If you want to create more servings, you can always double the recipe. But I would suggest you freeze it if you plan to consume it after three days.
For this breakfast sandwich, I start with turning my chicken sausage into a burger patty. For this, you will have to remove the casing of the sausage, reshape it and cut into a burger patty shape.
I fry my burger patty on a cast iron pan. A cast iron pan is a healthier and safer choice when you’re frying. A cast iron pan requires less oil and it isn’t coated with materials that are harmful to your body.
In the end, I add the cheese on top. To allow it to melt properly, I throw in ice cubes into the pan. This brings down the pan temperature so the cheese will melt without burning the patty.
The next part of my breakfast sandwich is the eggs. The key to fluffy eggs in Starbucks breakfast sandwiches is whisking the egg mixture vigorously. If you don’t have a mold to cut circles for the chicken patties and the eggs, you can always use a lid like a peanut butter lid I used.
Egg white recipe
Eggs are the best start of the day. In fact, they are the best food for any meal of the day. They provide protein to your body. Half the protein in eggs is in the egg whites. When you remove the yolk from the egg, you basically strip the egg from all cholesterol. That means you can enjoy all the benefits of an egg without giving your body extra cholesterol.
This egg white recipe is super easy to make. Create the parts and just assemble the wrap. When I don’t have time, I skip baking the tomatoes. You can always replace them with sun-dried tomatoes. Baking or drying the tomatoes brings out the natural sweetness of tomatoes.
Many people are often intimidated with egg white recipe. But it’s just like making a scrambled egg. Just remove the yolk and continue with the whites.
You can create the entire Starbucks egg white wrap in advance or create the parts to assemble them later. If you want to create this egg white recipe in advance, then don’t assemble the parts while they are warm. You might end up eating a soggy wrap from all the vegetable juices.
