Day 18: Fried Egg, Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Sandwich


I’m sure you have realized by now that at least once a week I eat breakfast (i.e. eggs) for dinner. I honestly would probably do it much more often than that, but I’m sure y’all would get tired of reading about it and that wouldn’t really fit into the premise of the Pinterest Project.

For Day 18 of the Pinterest Project, I am making a Fried Egg, Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Sandwich, or as I like to call it a Fried Egg BAT. When I originally repinned this to my ‘recipe’ board, I didn’t realize that I was just repinning a picture and not a link to an actual recipe. Luckily the name of this sandwich speaks for itself, so it wasn’t too hard to wing it.

Fried Egg BAT


  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices of bread (I used Ezekiel 4:9 whole wheat bread)
  • 1 slicing or beefsteak tomato
  • 2 pieces of bacon or turkey bacon (I opted for the lighter turkey bacon)
  • 1/4 of an avocado
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • non-stick cooking spray or 1 tsp olive oil


Cook bacon according to packaging. [I had 2 pieces of leftover turkey bacon for the other night, so I just reheated that in a frying pan for a few minutes.] Toast 2 pieces of bread in toaster and set aside on plate.

Starting at one end of the tomato, cut 2 or 3 slices off about 1/4 inch thick. Discarding end piece and set aside slices. Cut avocado in half and put away the half with the seed for use another day. Peel remaining half of avocado and slice. You’ll only need about 4 thin slices.

[Look at that avocado below! I have the hardest time finding ripe avocados in NY, so I was super excited when I picked this baby up today! There’s nothing better than a perfectly ripe avocado :)]

Heat frying pan on medium and spray with cooking spray or put olive oil in pan. Crack egg into pan and cook until desired doneness. [I personally like my fried eggs over easy.]  On one piece of toast, layer turkey bacon and fried egg and layer tomato slices and avocado on the other slice of toast. Salt and Pepper as desired.

Close the sandwich up and enjoy!

I know I say this a lot about, but this recipe was really good! I mean, I guess it should be since I’m picking out recipes that I would want to eat! I’m a pretty picky eater, but I at least know what I like. This sandwich was a little messy because of the juice from the tomato and the yolk, but it was totally worth it. The toast was a little more done than I typically like, but overall it was really good.

If you cook the bacon in advance, then you could make this for a quick breakfast before work! Plus, it’s relatively healthy. You’ve got your protein from the turkey bacon and egg, good kind of fat from the avocado slices, carbs from the whole wheat bread and some tomato slices for your veggies. I’d say this sandwich is way better than any breakfast sandwich you’re going to get from a fast food place!

One bite in and it was so good!!!! Try it, you’ll love it!

P.S. My abs are like seriously burning from yesterday’s 300 workout. I definitely need to incorporate that routine into my weekly workout schedule. If you didn’t see yesterday’s post, you can read about it here.


Day 13: Mexican Egg Skillet


Last night as I was typing this blog, my internet stopped working and wouldn’t work for the rest of the evening, so sorry for the delay in posting!

It’s day 13 of the Pinterest Project and I’m making Mexican Egg Skillet for dinner! As I told y’all last week I love eggs, so I’m really excited about trying this recipe and eating some eggs tonight for dinner. I did make a few changes to the original recipe to give it my own flavor and fit my tastes! This recipe is adapted from the Mexican Egg Skillet recipe found on the blog “Pennies on a Platter.” If you look at the original recipe, then you’ll see the changes that I made.

Mexican Egg Skillet – serves one


  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomato
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup grated cheese
  • 1 tortilla (corn or four)
  • Adobo seasoning, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Salsa (I always use Pace Picante)


Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Sautee onions for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Add tomatoes and cook until tender. Season with Adobo, salt and pepper.

Push veggies to the side of the skillet to make room for the eggs. Crack two eggs into the skillet and cook until desired doneness. I cooked mine for 6-7 minutes until the egg white was completely set. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the eggs and vegetables. Cover the skillet with a lid for 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve over a tortilla and top with salsa, if desired.

As you can see from the above picture, I also added some salt and pepper to the top of my eggs before adding the cheddar cheese. I was really glad that my eggs didn’t become scorched considering I cooked them without flipping them for so long!

I loved the way I changed up this recipe. I served it up with a side of spanish rice and it was amazing. I literally was making noises while eating this meal because I loved it so much. It was like a veggie breakfast taco but with sunny side up eggs instead of scrambled. Seriously though, I was  saying ‘mmmm’ the entire time I was eating this. I was being ridiculous! But look at that food, how could you not love it??! Try it, you’ll be glad you did, especially if you like breakfast!

Day 6: 100 calories of goodness


Before I begin talking about what I made for the Pinterest Project today, can I just say that I am 100% truly addicted to the Hunger Games series?? I started it over the weekend and finished the first book Sunday morning. Yesterday after work I went to Barnes and Noble and bought the other two books because I was so eager to find out what happened to Katniss and Peeta. I ended up staying up late and reading about 150 pages into the second book and it’s getting better with each twist and turn. I have to admit that when I woke up this morning, I was exhaust because I had one fo the worst sleeps ever. All I could dream about was the Hunger Games! Seriously it was amazing, but awful and all day at work, all I thought about was the book. On that note, one of my co-workers sent this to me and I thought it was hilarious, so I thought y’all might enjoy it as well. And don’t get me wrong, I love Twilight too, but the Hunger Games is just on a completely different level!

Now onto the real reason I wrote this post…

So, if you know me, then you know that one of the things I absolutely LOVE to eat is eggs! I can eat eggs for 2, even 3 meals a day…seriously I’m addicted. And I love all types of eggs…hard boiled, soft, scrambled…you name it, I’ll eat it. Eating eggs for dinner though is by far one of my favorite things in the world to do. I love breakfast for dinner! For day 6 of the Pinterest Project I decided to make 100 calories of goodness i.e. baked eggs! I repinned this from the ‘The Simple Delights’  blog, but I changed up the ingredients a little bit as I am not a big ham eater and I didn’t want to make 12 baked eggs. So, below is my recipe for baked eggs.

Baked eggs in a Turkey cup – 1 serving


  • 1 egg
  • 1 thin slice of deli turkey meat
  • 1 pinch of shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or grease with olive oil. Lay piece of turkey into one of the holes creating a cup. Crack one egg onto the turkey slice and then salt and pepper to taste. Bake the egg in the oven for 12 minutes or until the egg white sets. Carefully remove the egg from the muffin tin and top with a pinch of shredded cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy!

I ended up making 2 baked egg cups for myself for dinner and then best part of this was that each cup I made was only about 100 calories! I used Sara Lee turkey which was only 12.5 calories per slice and natural eggs from Trader Joe’s. Those added with a pinch of cheese and I’m looking at about 100 calories of goodness! I loved this recipe so much and it was so easy to make, that I will definitely be making this on a regular basis for a quick breakfast or dinner! I actually even left my muffin tin out so I can make one again tomorrow for breakfast!!! Can we say already addicted? Yes.
