My kids went back to school this week and I have started an early morning workout routine.  I am determined to start getting more exercise on a regular basis and since they are both gone by 7 AM I have no more excuses.  I don’t eat much before I work out.  I may have a granola bar or a piece of fruit but not a whole big breakfast.  However, that means that when I return home after my workout and finish my shower I am famished.  I can pretty much feel my stomach digesting itself in it’s attempt to achieve hunger satisfaction. I have decided to start keeping a few items in the fridge that will make it easy to put together a breakfast sandwich recipe with very little work. I just have to remember to hide the cooked bacon from the rest of my family!

Arepas recipe for breakfast sandwich

Up until now, I did not know what arepa were.  I have been working with P.A.N. Cornmeal for the last few months to show off the unique and healthy characteristics of this precooked cornmeal.  Arepa are a cornmeal flatbread that are perfect for your favorite sandwich recipes.  You probably put your breakfast sandwich on a bagel or English muffin, right?  Well, I encourage you to put on your ‘Food Explorer’ hat and think outside the box next time you want to make a breakfast sandwich.

  1. I'm pretty simple when it comes to breakfast, but I like to try new things sometimes. This looks delicious. I don't think I've ever used cornmeal as a focus ingredient before. My kids will be on the bus by 6:45 starting this year and I'm not sure what I'll do with myself. I guess exercise should be on the top of the list!
  2. I've never heard of an arepa before. I need to try this!
  3. This is a power breakfast if I've ever seen one. I can't wait to try this. The addition of the avocado did it for me!
  4. Now that is a breakfast the husband would love every morning before he heads out to work. Packed full of goodies he loves and plenty of energy for the day.
  5. Yum!! I would totally eat that. Thanks for the great recipe!
