This. Is. Amazing.
I told you I would share a recipe with those refried beans that I made last week. This is it. This is the recipe.
I mean, what’s not to love? Refried beans. Guacamole (although sans the guac on Frank’s). A drippy egg. The only thing that would put this over the top is some bacon. Yes. The ultimate breakfast sandwich. With bacon.
I’ve made huevos rancheros for breakfast in the past, but never in a sandwich. And I never used home made refried beans. I also never paired it with guacamole. So, this is a first. But it definitely won’t be the last.
And I know some people are still going to say “but Samanthaaaa, it’s so much easier/cheaper to go to McDonald’s for breakfast”. Yeah. Friggen. Right. This took approximately 5 minutes to put together, and is less than a dollar to make. Yes, you heard me correctly. Less than a dollar!
So, really. There’s no excuse as why you shouldn’t be making this tomorrow for breakfast. Or, you know – Wednesday.. since the refried beans do take a little bit longer to make. If you opt to just go out and buy the canned variety, the price will increase slightly, but not significantly – but at least you won’t have an excuse as to why you aren’t making these.
Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Sandwich
30 min or less * makes 1 sandwich * total cost $0.94
- English muffin (I used a whole wheat, but use whatever kind you want) – $0.35
- 2 tbsp refried beans – $0.04
- 2 tbsp quacamole – $0.37
- 1 egg – $0.10
- 1 tbsp salsa – $0.08
Slice the English muffin in half and lightly toast it. Smear the refried beans on one half, and the guacamole on the other half. Fry up one egg and season with salt and pepper. Place the egg on top of refried beans and scoop salsa on top. Top with other half of English muffin and guacamole and serve. That’s it. So simple.
So – Frank hates guacamole. Well, avocados in general. He says it’s like eating boogers. Whatever. But because of this, I don’t keep guacamole in my fridge, because there’s no way I would eat it before it turned brown… and I’m not all about eating some brown looking guac. So, I purchase the 4 individual packets. I used about half of one package for this, and the other half I saved for a snack later on in the day, but you can easily make two sandwiches with one packet… possibly even more if you don’t go as extreme as I did.
I’m making this again tomorrow.
