Sunrise Melt

I've been neglecting this blog, and I apologize.
Let's just chalk it up to the fact that finals will forevermore suck up my life for at least 2 weeks out of the year.

Grades will be coming out soon, so fingers crossed that my time away was worthwhile!
Hopefully this recipe will make up for it.
In one of my classes, my friends Haley and Nikki had a morning routine. Halfway through our class together, we had a 15 minute break, during which time Haley and Nikki walked down the street to a local shop and grabbed a hot breakfast quesadilla. It always looked crispy and delicious - and someone overpriced. So, I decided to try my hand at making my own.
Introducing my super-sized and super-healthy sunrise melt!

Delicious, tangy, and filled with nutritious avocado, this sandwich is sunshine on a plate. Super-easy and incredibly delicious, it's become a new staple of mine.

To make this super-easy melt, grab these ingredients:

1 avocado

2-3 eggs
salt and pepper
small block fresh feta cheese
2 masa corn tortillas

Start by mixing your eggs with milk, salt, and pepper. Beat well. Add your cheese, breaking it into chunks with a fork. Pour your eggs into a pan and scramble.
Slice up an avocado. Grab your tortillas, and grill them if you can for an extra crisp and charred flavor. Layer your eggs and avocado onto the tortillas. If you really want an extra burst of crispiness, throw the sandwich onto a panini press. Slice in half and serve with a huge glass of orange juice.

Then sit back, relax, and watch the sunrise. FINALS ARE OVER!!! WOOO!

  1. Oh my god, this looks incredible! Eggs and avocado... count me in! I wish I had the ingredients to make this right now, I'm literally drooling. (Also, good luck with your grades! Waiting for them is always the worst part, but I'm sure you did wonderfully!)

    1. Thanks!!! And yes this is an absolutely delicious sandwich. The tartness of the goat cheese mixes great with the egg and creamy avocado. Still waiting on some grades to come in....*sigh*

  2. Wow, oddly enough I currently have 1) tortillas, 2) ripe avocados, and 3) a block of feta, all of which I've been trying to find uses for. This looks perfect!

    1. I promise this sandwich won't let you down!!
