Bacon, Egg, and Gouda Breakfast Sandwich

We are Starbucks regulars, and some might say coffee addicts… but I wouldn’t go that far. This girl just likes a good cup of coffee in the morning. And lately after Crossfit we’ve been stopping in to get a little breakfast too…not every morning because that would for sure blow the budget. But some mornings it’s like a little fun treat!

Bacon, Egg, and Gouda-6475

I’ve grown to become addicted to the Bacon, Egg, and Gouda sandwich from Starbucks. OMG, those soft fluffy eggs, oooey gooey cheese and the saltiness from the bacon make a killer combo. Eric is a big fan of the Marshmallow Dream Bar… you know he’s gotta have his sweets.

But last week when we went in, Starbucks let us down. I’m all about the pretty new pink coffee covers but the new line of products suck! Seriously! You had awesome sandwiches and sweets Starbucks, why did you change a good thing? To me there new La Boulange line is more processed and not as fresh! Packaged Marshmallow Dream Bars? Really? And the ciabatta bread on my sandwich is not as soft! Come on Starbucks!

Any one else taste the difference?? We might be Starbucks snobs, but I want my food to taste fresh! SO…I decided to recreate the sandwich at home.

Eric and I have been doing super good with our budget! I know we are only two weeks in, but seriously we usually would have blown it by now in the eating out category. We’ve averaged $30 bucks per week eating out (and you should know we put coffee in this category)! I’m kinda reluctant…

What’s for breakfast? While cereal and milk is a common breakfast staple. It’s not the best choice in my opinion. For lasting energy, your body needs more than sugar. In fact if you are trying to maintain lean muscle tissue (and who isn’t?), you need high quality proteins.  Protein is so often overlooked at breakfast,…
