Who says you can't enjoy delicious breakfast sandwiches for dinner? These took me a little more time than a trip through a McDonald's drive-thru, but they were WAY more delicious, nearly ZERO carbs, and since I'm rarely up early enough to make the fast food breakfast cut-off time anyway, I've got nothing to complain about.
First, I took a little time this afternoon to whip up a batch of blogger Jamie Van Eaton's now-famous Revol-Oopsie Rolls. (Long story short: a mistake she made in the recipe for Atkins' Revolution Rolls ended up producing these durable and delicious "buns" which have answered the prayers of sandwich-yearning low-carbers everywhere.)
While the Oopsies were baking, I fried up a couple of Bob Evans sausage patties (the sandwich-sized patties are the perfect size for Oopsies, by the way), and after giving the Oopsies some time to "rest", I assembled a couple of sandwiches, each complete with a slice of cheddar cheese. (I considered adding egg to the sandwiches, but since the Oopsies are mostly made of eggs in the first place and that's never been my favorite breakfast sandwich ingredient, I decided not to go to the trouble.) Each sandwich went into a ziplock bag and into my lunch box for dinner, and all I had to do was pop them in the microwave for about twenty seconds for overall warmth and delightfully melted cheese.
As I suspected, these things were so FILLING that one was plenty for one sitting, but I like to always be prepared with extra food in case I need it, especially during the first few days of being back on my low-carb plan, when hunger and cravings are more likely to strike. And part of the beauty of this diet (compared with reduced-calorie/reduced-portion diets) is the freedom to always eat when hungry and to eat until full.
