Ryan’s Famous Spinach, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

spinach and egg sandwich 004It really is Ryan's famous spinach, egg & cheese breakfast sandwich.  Made almost on a daily basis, making the whole house smell delicious with just a few ingredients.

Bread is probably the most important part of the sandwich, and this bread has it all.

Sprouted Whole Grain Bread from Whole Foods is full of yummy seeds, nuts and whole grains, making this a perfect bread to hold all the cheesy goodness inside.  Look for a hearty style bread that won't fall apart.

Our favorite way to make eggs is to cook them over-hard, which means drop the egg in, break the yolk, cook fully on one side, flip it then cook until a little browned on the other side.  I like my eggs totally dry - wet eggs are weird.  You could easily make this sunny side up with a drippy yolk or poached for a really drippy egg - it's your call, just not my choice!

Full of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and calcium, this sandwich is a winner.
