When dining out for breakfast, most of us look for a full spread with eggs, potatoes, bacon, and a side of pancakes or French toast. This could be due to a lack of enthusiasm to prepare complex breakfasts at home during the weekdays.
There might be a chance for a big breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday. However, for most days, it’s usually simpler options like oatmeal.
Enter the delicious open-faced egg and goat cheese sandwich – an excellent compromise. It takes a bit more effort than preparing oatmeal, but still straightforward enough to make before your morning coffee is ready, using just the energy you woke up with.
