Apple and Sage Breakfast Sandwich

The Apple and Sage Breakfast Sandwich is wonderful through fall and winter while apples are still plentiful. You can add bacon to it or not, it's great either way.

First, you'll need to make up the sage aioli:
1/2 cup of your choice of mayo
2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1T fresh sage, finely chopped
1t lemon juice
1/2T EVOO (exclude if your mayo of choice was already thin)

mix the ingredients together and keep refrigerated until needed.

The rest of the ingredients of the sandwich are simple and most can be found on our pages during the fall and winter seasons:
eggs (1 or 2 works)
green apple
bacon (optional)
english muffin
smoked gouda

Cook up the bacon and egg(s). When they are nearly finished, begin toasting the english muffin, but don't fully brown - you'll want to melt the cheese slightly on the top piece after a light toasting.

To assemble:
smear sage aioli on the bottom half, layer thin slices of apple, then lay egg, then bacon, and top with melty cheese.

Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Yogurt

Looking for another way to use those sweet potatoes this season? Consider making this sweet potato yogurt found on Food52. It makes a great breakfast and easily paired with some apple, nuts, or granola. I used my preferred 2% greek yogurt that has no added sugars but you can use your go to.

You'll need:
1 cup greek yogurt
2 (~12-14 oz total) sweet potatoes

Preheat the oven to 450F
Wash and dry off sweet potatoes
Poke several holes in each sweet potato
Bake sweet potatoes for 45-60 minutes
Allow sweet potatoes to cool enough to be handled

Peel away the skin of the sweet potatoes and add the flesh to a food processor
Blend until completely smooth
Place in fridge or let sit on counter to cool to room temperature or below

Stir the yogurt into the sweet potato puree

You can add spices as you please to tweak the flavor. Enjoy! read more...
