Up until about six months ago, if I heard the words "breakfast sandwich," my mind conjured up a savory delight of eggs over medium smooshed between two pieces of perfectly toasted and buttered sour dough bread. Quite lovely with a hot cup of jo and the morning newspaper. (Ha! As if any mommy has time to read a newspaper in the morning.) Well, no more, my friends. This is because the five year old begs for a different breakfast sandwich just about every day. I created her breakfast sandwich as a special treat for Valentine's Day morning. And now this special treat has become a daily request, one which I'm likely to give into because, well, it's the little things in life that matter, right? (And a bonus-it's a pretty healthy start to the morning!)
Breakfast Sandwich Ava Style: Butter two pieces of whole grain bread. Spread strawberry jam on the inside of one of the pieces. Push a layer of sliced strawberries into the jam. Put the bread together buttered sides out and "grill" over medium heat in a saute pan until golden brown, flip and repeat. Dust with powder sugar. Serve warm and gooey with a big glass of milk.
