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.

Classic Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Egg Salad Sandwich

Every once in awhile I like egg salad. I don’t know why I don’t eat it more often since it is quite easy to make. Even though I am not very fond of mustard doesn’t mean you can’t add mustard to your recipe. Nevertheless, I always have a lot of eggs on hand and rightly so with 10 chickens at home — so might as well make some egg salad since all those eggs I have are taking up so much space in my fridge.

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!

DIY Paint Sample Easter Garland

Paint Sample Egg Garland | Small Town Living in Nevada

When I first thought of making my own Easter Garland the first thing that popped into my head was Paint Samples! I had seen this online before and thought how cool is that. So the first thing I did was head over to the local paint stores — and let me tell you trying to find multi-colored paint samples were hard. Every sample I was coming across was one solid color. Paint Sample Egg Garland | Small Town Living in NevadaFinally, after a couple of days and three or four stores I finally found the paint samples I was seeking!!

Once I had the samples, I was wondering how I was going to cut the perfect egg shape and then my crafty friend Kelly suggested using an Egg shaped Cookie Cutter. Whoa! what a fantastic idea; it was simple and quick to trace the cookie cutter. Then all we had to do was cut the traced egg out.

Then I took my hole puncher and punched two holes at the top of the eggs and ran thick craft twine through the holes. SIMPLE, FAST and OH SO CUTE!! Next to find that perfect location to hang my garland!

Easter Craft: Easter String Egg Garland

Easter Egg Garland | Small Town Living in Nevada

Here is a fun yet messy Easter craft.

What you need

  • Embroidery Floss
  • Liquid Starch
  • Flour
  • Ribbon / Yarn
  • water balloons
  • needle

First, you need a lot of embroidery floss different pastel colors.

Next, you need to make your glue.  You will need 1/2 a cup of flour and 1 cup Sta-Flo liquid starch.

Now, take a water balloon and blow it up to make it look like an egg.

Now, dip your floss in the starch glue and then wrap the embroidery floss around the balloon, using your fingers to pull off the excess liquid. It shouldn’t be a goopy mess when you are done.

Once the string hardens and is completely dry, take a needle and pop the balloons.

Next string up your eggs with ribbon or yarn and you have an Easter String Egg Garland.

Gluten Free BLT with a fried egg

Today is my birthday and it felt like a BLT with Fried egg kind of day.

The kids are all at school… and I am home alone enjoying the peace and quiet. Gonna make a BLT with a Fried egg for breakfast…. yep, it is so far a good morning!

Gluten Free BLT with fried Egg | Small Town Living in Nevada

My parents are in town visiting so when my father comes into town he always brings me the fruits of his garden regardless if I have a garden going or not. But this trip he brought me vine ripened tomatoes out of his garden. A nice little addition to my sandwich!

Since my husband is allergic to sodium nitrates and msg I don’t fry up bacon practically ever. However, I do always keep a box on hand for when I get a craving. And of course today was the day and ohhhhhh, was it worth it!

Gluten Free BLT with a fried egg


  • 6 thick slices of bacon
  • 2 slices of gluten free bread, toasted – I used Udi’s
  • 1-2 tablespoons mayonnaise – I used Best Foods
  • 3 tomato slices – garden fresh!
  • 2 leaves of green leaf lettuce
  • 1 large egg — I used fresh out of the chicken coop!
  1. In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  2. Spread the mayonnaise on both slices of toast, then top with the bacon, tomato and lettuce.
  3. In the same skillet that the bacon was fried, add the egg and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp around the edge, about 3 minutes; the yolk should still be runny. Slide the egg onto the lettuce; close the sandwich and eat right away.

Gluten Free Egg Muffin Sandwich

I decided to make the kids and I Egg Muffin Sandwiches this morning for breakfast since I had come across a package of Ener-G English Muffins at the grocery store. I love English Muffins and have really missed having an English Muffin since we had to go gluten free over a year ago.  And well… plus, I love Eggs Benedict.. Egg Muffins, and the list goes on. I have to say the English Muffins were more like a croissant than an English Muffin — which is perfectly fine. I love croissants so it was great. I cut the roll in half then toasted them in the toaster and it worked out perfectly. This could probably be a great roll for Turkey Salad Sandwiches as well… hmmm sounds like I might have to try that sometime soon. Egg_Sandwich


  • 1 Ener-G English muffin split and toasted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 1 slice of deli ham


  1. Take a microwave-safe greased ramekin place a slice of ham in the ramekin then crack an egg on top of the ham.  Place ramekin in a ziploc bag (in case egg explodes in microwave) and place container in the microwave and cook for 45-60 seconds until all the liquid is cooked off and egg is cooked through.
  2. When the egg is ready, place it on top of the bread and top it off with cheese and the other half of the bread.  The egg will be hot and will melt the cheese.
