Black Bean Breakfast Sandwich is a misnomer of sorts. Don't get me wrong, it's completely delicious, it's easy to make, loaded with protein and fiber but it doesn't have to be exclusively for breakfast. I made this for a rare meatless Monday dinner and may I just say the reviews were stellar.
This Black Bean Breakfast Sandwich recipe begins with a protein-rich, reduced sodium can of black beans. The beans do a quick twirl in a food processor with an egg, some breadcrumbs and some seasoning before getting panned seared in a hot skillet.
Ultimately, they end up sandwiched within a reduced calorie, whole wheat English muffin, topped with a slice of cheese and crowned with a poached egg. This Black Bean Breakfast Sandwich goes together in about 10 minutes, making it ideal for a fast and nutritious breakfast entree or a great lunch or dinner for later in the day. I hope you will give this one a try and as always - let me know what you think. -Dan
