Behold the breakfast slider – my own invention, and I am about to show you why you should stick this in your mouth and bite down hard!
A PLATTER OF SLIDERS!
Everyone knows that I love sliders, but most don’t know the reason: they are small portions! Yes, you can eat a whole platter by yourself, but I like that you can have a couple bites of burger and be done – I’m tired of the “half-pound” monster burgers that load me up with way too much food…a slider gives a little love and is gone!
APPRECIATE THE WHITE CASTLE SLIDER!
As you know, I previously made a case for why White Castle deserves a little more respect from burger fans and yes, well snobs as well – as I have stated before, “you don’t expect much from White Castle, but they don’t expect much from you either!”
A slider is 79 cents – 79 CENTS.
PLAY WITH SOME WHITE CASTLE AT HOME!
I had some eggs at home and didn’t feel like scrambled eggs for breakfast – and didn’t want a big meal at all – so what to do? Well, using the box of frozen White Castle cheeseburgers I had, I got cooking!
MAKING THE “WHITE CASTLE BREAKFAST SLIDER!”
First, take two sliders out of their frozen hell and microwave them for a minute…as far as the White Castle part of this recipe is concerned, this is the toughest part of the preparation….
As your sliders are busy microwaving, put a single egg in a pan, with a bit of olive oil…adding salt and pepper to your personal taste…
Next, take your two White Castle sliders out of the microwave, open them up and lay down a line of Mayonaise…yes, it tastes great and you can buy lowfat or olive oil-based versions – remember mayo and aioli come from condiment heaven…
As the egg cooks, break the yolk and then flip the egg over…let it cook for a minute and then slit it down the middle, separate the two pieces and let both pieces finish cooking…i like mine a bit runny, so I can taste the runny yolk, but do what you need to do – it’s your egg…
CONTINUE CONSTRUCTING YOUR BREAKFAST BITES!
When your egg is finished cooking, slide those two pieces onto the top of your waiting White Castle cheeseburger sliders…breakfast is served!
“WHITE CASTLE BREAKFAST SLIDERS!”
Once you take a bite you will understand that THIS is a great way to start the day – and not bad for you, either!
LET’S ADD THIS UP!
Ok, first you begin with the White Castle Cheeseburgers: you are eating two, which according to the box add up to this total:
310 total calories
THE INCREDIBLE, EDIBLE EGG…
And now let’s add the single egg, a nutritional thing of beauty:
It gets better: let’s add in the extra health benefits of the egg…
25% of your daily dose of Vitamin E
20% of your B-12
20% of your Vitamin D
40% of your Iodine – I don’t know why you need it, but here’s 40% of it, so stop complaining…
115mg of Omega 3 – of course, you have to get the eggs that are fortified with Omega 3’s…
FULL FOR 380!
So there you go! A 380 calorie breakfast with 21g of fat – sure that’s a third of your day’s total, but have a salad for lunch and get back on track, will you?
My point is that this is a tasty, filling and semi-healthy way to begin a day – not EVERY day of course, but a lot better than what is being sold to you at various breakfast outlets!
And once again our friends at White Castle come through!
