Delicious High Protein Breakfast Inspired by Panera Bread’s Mediterranean Sandwhich

On a recent visit to Panera Bread, I noticed a large sign advertising their Mediterranean Breakfast Sandwich.  What appealed to me the most was the combination of the pesto, spinach and egg whites…  I actually would prefer it without their bread but apparently, it makes heating it up a chore without the bread.

One of My Favorite Things for Breakfast
I just pile it all on, tastes better than it looks in my picture

Since we had a refrigeration full of Easter Eggs, I decided to create my own version and I love it even more.

I toast a high fiber, low sodium English muffin and pile it with:

  • two sliced hard boil egg whites
  • fresh spinach
  • thinly sliced tomatoes
  • swiss cheese 
  • pesto (Costco makes a good one)
  • fresh cracked black pepper
I pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and eat it open-faced – Yum!  It’s so ono and packed with protein and healthy goodness.  Try it!
Have a great Day!

  1. Hi Shelly!

    It was great to meetand talk with you yesterday afternoon. I talked with a friend about the paint and she is interested in painting her bedroom furniture. I think she would love the CeCeCaldwell paint! You have a great product, and you do awesome work!

    1. Guilty as charged. I lived there for nine years where I worked in estimating for a civil contractor who built a lot golf courses and subdivisions. I spent a majority of time at the beach racing outriggers. Did you paddle while you were there? I also married my Hawaiian husband. Hawaiian expressions are so much a part of my daily life that I don’t even notice I’m speaking it or writing it until a waiter looks at me funny when I tell them I’m “all pau” – lol

    2. Oh cool, small world. I walked the grounds of Schofield Barracks for a job we were bidding while I lived on Maui. Big difference yeah from Oahu to the Big Island. I LOVE the Big Island! My first State Championships were held in Hilo Bay. I’ll never forget lining up that day in our pristine Koa Canoe. I also have the best memories of racing Queen Lilioukalani’s long distance outrigger canoe race every Labor Day Weekend from Kona to the City of Refuge. Another favorite memory was volunteering at the Ironman. I honored to work the finish line and I can tell you there is nothing more inspirational than seeing a 70+ year old grandfather of 17 running down Alii Drive and crossing the finish line just before midnight. I love hearing all the stories behind the athletes.
