Weekend Food Choices Week 27: A Simple Breakfast at Home

2 weekends down, 1 to go…

Because we haven’t had time to go out (at all) for the second week in a row, i decided i would make the most of our 2 hour-morning together by whipping up a simple breakfast

It all started with me remembering i had a pack of Finlandia assorted deli cheese in the fridge

The pack of deli cheese had Colby Jack, Monterey Jack, Swiss Cheese and Cheddar.

I then found some bread, lettuce and bacon, perfect for a quick breakfast sandwich I call BLC (bacon lettuce and cheese)

Hubby chose the swiss cheese and i decided i to go with the colby jack.

Swiss cheese is a generic name for cheese that resembles the swiss emmental and is know for its holes which are created during its production.

Colby Jack on the other hand is a combination of Colby and Monterey Jack giving this cheese its marbled appearance. Colby and Monterey are both semi hard American cheeses with a mild in flavor.

How to make BLC:
1. Toast or grill your bread and top with your choice of cheese while the bread is still hot
ooohhh look at that perfectly melted colby jack cheese! yum!

2. Cook your bacon until it’s super crisp

3. Place the crisp bacon on top of the melted cheese and toast.

4. Add your lettuce (mayo and tomato if you want)

5. Enjoy!

…i can’t wait to get my Sunday back…

    • hi JP, i actually cook my bacon in the microwave between paper towels, they come out super crunchy but devoid of oil. local bacon would cook in about 3-4 minutes…im too lazy to cook in a pan! hahaha!
