Homemade Gluten Free Egg & Sausage breakfast sandwich

Like I have said before, I love sandwiches and that includes breakfast as well. If you are short on time and have 15 minutes to spare you can definitely make this breakfast sandwich in 15 minutes or less! And it is a good hefty serving with 2 eggs and 2 sausage patties!! You might even be nicely stuffed after eating this bad boy!

For convenience, I love using the microwave to cook my eggs in a ramekin. And I have to say it comes out like an Egg McMuffin style egg – so SCORE!

And of course you can definitely make several of these sandwiches ahead of time and freeze them up for later meals!! Whatever your fancy….

Gluten Free BLT with Avocado and Scrambled Egg

I love breakfast sandwiches. Ok I love sandwiches in general. But, the combination of flavors and textures in this sandwich are awesome and jazz up a boring BLT any day.

Normally I love this with a fried egg but decided to make a less messy version and use a scrambled egg instead. Regardless of how you like your egg — this is the breakfast sandwich for you.

Gluten Free Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizza

I always seem to have at least a 100 eggs in my garage refrigerator at all times. When I am bored or don’t know what to make for dinner I tend to gravitate towards using up the eggs and making breakfast as our dinner.

This time I decided to make a breakfast pizza. My brother made it for me once and I really enjoyed it. So this time I decided to make one for my family. While I can’t truly remember what my brother topped his pizza with — I just scoured the fridge and went from there for my breakfast pizzas.

I found slices of ham, spinach, and wonderful onions and tomatoes from my garden. I couldn’t wait to get started!!

Scrambled Egg And Italian Sausage Breakfast Burrito

I wanted to make something easy for breakfast and a breakfast burrito is as easy as it gets!

I had sliced Italian sausage in the freezer and decided that would make for a yummy burrito.

Gluten Free Scrambled Egg And Italian Sausage BurritoMy parents had given me a bag of gluten free tortillas by Mission. I had never seen them before and was more than happy to try them out. And I have to say it was like eating a gluten filled tortilla. It was really soft and very tasty! Now if only my stores here in Nevada carried them!

Toast with Broiled Cheese, Avocado and Tomato

Broiled Cheese with Avocado and Tomato | Small Town Living in Nevada

Years ago when I lived in Tahoe I worked across the street from a bagel shop and would frequent there quite often. One of my favorites from the shop was an everything bagel smothered with garlic cream cheese then topped with slices of tomato and avocado covered with melted havarti cheese and sprinkled with Garlic Pepper. This was my go to breakfast in the morning.

However, it was pricy eating out everyday. SOOOOOOO, I decided I could make it myself — and boy how easy it was.

Now fast forward 10+ years and throw in being gluten intolerant… and you have gluten free bread instead of an everything bagel. I tend to use what I have on hand at home to make my broiled breakfast than go out of my way to get every ingredient.

I always seem to have provolone cheese on hand and there was leftover diced tomatoes from tacos the other night in the refrigerator so that is what I used but by all means go ahead and use freshly sliced tomatoes or whatever cheese you prefer.

Namaste Foods Gluten Free Waffle & Pancake Mix Review

Namaste Foods, Gluten Free Waffle & Pancake Mix

This morning we opened a bag of Namaste Foods, Gluten Free Waffle & Pancake Mix and boy were the waffles (yes waffles, again) really tasty!!

We used almond milk instead or regular milk and didn’t use any added sweeteners in the mix when making breakfast. The waffles came out crispy and beautiful on the Belgium waffle maker and everyone one devoured them up – the kids, grandparents and I were in waffle heaven!

The waffles themselves had a mild flavor — but with a little melted butter and some Agave Syrup — were perfect! Next time I may add a tsp of sugar to the mix to see how they taste in comparison with the added sweetener.

This product contains no wheat, gluten, soy, corn, potato, dairy, casein, peanuts or tree nuts. Non-GMO, all natural, no preservatives.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Breakfast Bars for on the go

If you like oatmeal in a bowl you’ll love these bars. An easier way of eating your oatmeal and clean up is a breeze after you are done eating.

The texture of the Oatmeal Breakfast Bar is denser than a banana bread but not dry or crunchy like your typical granola bar. They are very filling and a great, nutritional breakfast for the kids in the morning before school!

The Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are very easy to make especially for the busy mom. Simply stir together the dry and wet ingredients, pour into a pan, and bake – that simple. The Oatmeal Breakfast Bars can also be wrapped and frozen for up to four months, so go big and make them in bulk -(of course that is if they last more than a day or two from everyone gobbling them up).

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Waffles


After I came home from volunteering in my older son’s class at school today I made my younger son and I Gluten Free Peanut Butter chocolate chip waffles topped with syrup and plum jelly for lunch.

I had made a waffle for my older son earlier that day because there was a birthday celebration for a classmate that brought waffles as her treat. Of course my kids can’t participate in class treats since most things brought in are riddled with gluten. So I made him a Gluten Free Waffle so he wouldn’t be left out on the celebration.

Well that afternoon, the younger one said he wanted a PB&J sandwich and I suggested a PB&J waffle instead. Sounded like a good idea since I had mix leftover. Why have it go to waste, right?

So I added peanut butter to the mix and then baked the mixture on my belgian waffle maker.

81xgeejUBEL._SL1500_I had never tried Hodgson Mill’s Gluten Free Pancake & Waffle Mix before and was eager to open the package I was graciously given. I couldn’t wait to taste how it turned out especially since it was a Non GMO product as well.

I was happily surprised to see the mix was made with whole grains and didn’t have any sugars or sweeteners added to the ingredients. The waffles I made with this mix were good. A little drier – but probably cause I added a thick peanut butter — and nothing syrup and jelly couldn’t fix. The taste was nice with a slight nutty flavor.  And the texture was perfect, too. Even my kids liked them which was a bonus.
