Breakfast Sandwich Ideas for Busy People

Why do so many people skip breakfast? Nutritionists tell us it is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast is what kick-starts a person’s metabolism. It helps provide your body with the basic ingredients to make the energy that you need to get through your busy day.

Then, why do people say, “No, thank you,” to breakfast? I think that it has to do with saving time. When it takes quite a while to make a breakfast, then you have to sit down to eat it, people just don’t have the time to do it. Rather than eat a tasteless breakfast, they would rather not eat anything at all.

When I was growing up, my mother thought my attachment to breakfast sandwiches was bizarre, at best. However, when the fast food shops expanded their breakfast menus to include sandwiches, they became more socially acceptable. What makes up a good breakfast sandwich?

First, it must be easy to make. Then, it must taste good and contain solid nutrition. A tasty breakfast sandwich also needs to be portable. These breakfast sandwich ideas first appeared in the Sandwich Name Game on the BellaOnline Sandwiches Forum. Many of them are suitable for vegetarian dietary needs.

One of the nice things about sandwiches is that they can be made quickly. If bacon is involved, you can cook it the night before and crisp it in the microwave. Some sandwiches heat well in the microwave, so you can make them ahead of time. If you want more ideas, visit the Sandwiches Site at BellaOnline, or look in our forum. Enjoy your sandwiches!
