Ciabatta Breakfast Sandwiches

I usually resort to some type of a sandwich to get some protein and get me going in the morning. At one point I was ordering Ham & Cheese Artisan breakfast sandwich from Starbucks almost every day. I enjoyed it a lot, but the 3 dollar price tag was bothering me. I decided to try making a similar breakfast sandwich at home. It turned out really good! I think it is even better than the inspiration, because I can change up the meat and cheese options so it doesn't get boring. The cost of making six of them - less than 7 dollars and 20 minutes of my time. I think it's totally worth it:)! I am sorry, Starbucks, I won't be buying those sandwiches from you anymore, but I am your faithful customer when it comes to my Mocca Frappuccino, Latte, and oat bars, and those delicious blueberry scones... Damn you, Starbucks:)


3 eggs or egg whites
deli meat of your choice, sliced
cheese of your choice (I use Swiss or mozzarella low moisture), sliced
ciabatta rolls, cut in half

This is what I usually use to make my sandwiches

Bake the rolls according to package instructions (miss this step, if you are using already prepared ones). Meanwhile heat a little bit of butter in a frying pan over a medium heat setting. Break the eggs into a bowl. Beat them with a fork or whisk until combined. Season with salt and pepper and pour the mixture into the pan. Cook it as you would an omelette. When it sets, transfer to a cutting board and divide into 6 pieces.

Assembling sandwiches:

Put a piece of an omelette on the bottom half of each roll, follow with the cheese, deli meat and cover with the top half.  Place each sandwich in a separate sandwich zipper bag and put it in the freezer.
In the morning put a sandwich in a microwave for 1 minute on a high power setting. Do not over microwave as it can become rubbery and hard to chew.

Makes 6 sandwiches
