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.

Gluten Free Tuna Melt Panini Style

Tuna Melt | Small Town Living in NevadaI don’t know if it is from growing up in California or what, but I love tuna melts. It is tasty as it can be. In a perfect world this would be great on rye bread, but I am not lucky enough to have gluten free rye bread in my area. Anyhow, I have made this delicious sandwich with Udi’s Gluten Free bread and yes, it came out oh so wonderful!

Turkey Salad for sandwiches…

Earlier this week I took a turkey caucus placed it into a stock pot with a bunch of veggies and made turkey broth. After I canned all the broth, I removed all the bones and veggies and was left with 2.5 lbs of shredded turkey. From there I made a delicious Turkey Salad for making sandwiches.

The consistency of the turkey was / is like eating Tuna Salad once it is set and ready. No biggie, it is DELICIOUS and way tastier than tuna could ever be!

Now you can make regular Turkey Salad sandwiches, a Turkey Salad Melt or you can stuff an avocado half! Either / Or will make your mouth and tummy very pleased!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Grilled Sandwich

Have you ever been to Disneyland and eaten dinner at Goofy’s Kitchen? One of the items they have on their buffet menu line is PB&J Pizza. While my kids and I couldn’t eat it I made it at home on Udi’s Pizza Crust. It was really good! Warm, melty goodness! And this is coming from someone who really isn’t a big fan of PB&J sandwiches.

Now fast forward a year and a half… I was making everyone roast beef sandwiches except for one of the kids they wanted a PB&J sandwich instead. I took out the panini grill so I could make the Roast beef sandwiches and then said, “Can I put your PB&J on the panini grill, also?” and my kid was like, “Sure.”

Well the other two kids seemed to be jealous and all I could hear was, “Can I have a bite to try your sandwich?” “This is sooooooo good!”

Anyhow, a new sandwich was born in our home, LOL.

Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches

My family was invited over to my friend’s home for a birthday party. I asked her what they were serving for dessert and I was told ice cream sandwiches. My response was great, I will try and make a gluten free version and bring those over for my kids.

While it was rather easy to make… the ice cream itself was melting pretty fast once I was assembling the sandwiches. And since it was melting I threw a ice pack in with the sandwiches so the remainder of the ice cream wouldn’t melt while we were driving.

All in all the ice cream sandwiches came out quite tasty… and even though they were a tad melted the kids didn’t even care.

Gluten Free Corned Beef Reuben Sandwich

As long as I can remember my family has always celebrated St Patrick’s Day. How can you not when you have a  paternal grandmother who was a Red Headed Irish lady (1/2 Irish actually) with the last name of Duffy.

My mother being full blooded Italian had never had corned beef and cabbage until after my parents were married. My father said it was a must have for the holiday. And since then according to my mother she has been making Corned Beef every year for the last 43 St Patrick’s Days! True dedication if you ask me.

Nevertheless, the tradition has gone on with me as well for my family. However, instead of the traditional corned beef and cabbage, I make Corned Beef Reuben Sandwiches every year. Gasp, but oh so much more tantalizing on the tongue!

It definitely is a deli favorite, the best Reuben sandwiches always contain a good helping of corned beef or even pastrami, a bit of swiss cheese, heaps of sauerkraut, and gobs of Thousand Island Dressing.

We aren’t a huge sauerkraut kinda family so I am omitting that from my recipe, but you can definitely add it to yours!

You can serve a Reuben cold, but I love it toasted on the panini grill and served warm so that the cheese is nice and melted and the thousand island dressing oozes out as you take a bite!

Gluten Free Monte Cristo Sandwich

I love all things Disney. I can no longer tell you how many actual times I have been to Disneyland in the last 30 years… but I think it is around 11 or 12 times. And there are always different foods that remind you of Disneyland as well… like Dole Whips and Monte Cristo Sandwiches.

I am lucky enough to have scored the actual Disneyland Monte Cristo recipe years ago off the Disney website – I don’t make them that often because it is time consuming — but when I do, it is well worth the wait!

Today — is the first time I converted my recipe to Gluten Free and have to say, the sandwich tastes just a yummy as it did from its original recipe!
