This California Breakfast Stack recipe is a light and fresh way to start your day!
It has all the delicious and fresh components you find in any good California-themed meal: An english muffin topped with pepper jack cheese for a kick, crispy bacon, fresh tomatoes and avocado and and a perfectly cooked sunny side up egg on top!
Why a breakfast stack?
Earlier this year, my family and I went on vacation to Florida. We spent two days at the Magic Kingdom and in between took a day off to rest, since Disney trips can be quite the marathon (on a side note, I highly recommend planning a day or two to be spent relaxing outside of the parks for any Disney trip!). Since we were staying off of the Disney property, we found ourselves at a Perkins down the street from our condo.
Since I tend to favor savory breakfast options like eggs and bacon, I began perusing that section of the breakfast menu and my eyes were immediately drawn to the California Eggs Benedict. The problem is that I’m not really an Eggs Benedict kind of gal. The hollandaise is a bit rich for me, especially in the morning.
But the rest of that entree sounded fantastic on its own! I mean it was basically a healthy breakfast sandwich without the top bun. Or rather an open faced breakfast sandwich with all the fresh fixings one would want (so as to keep with the “California” theme).
Let me tell you, it was love at first bite. I was such a fan that I immediately made a mental note to recreate this dish at home and now I’m so excited to share it with you!
