Roast Beef Sandwich for Breakfast


I've heard the Husband say at least twice how much he enjoyed his roast beef sandwich for breakfast this morning.

I generally figure every morning that I'll be having a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast. Easy-peasy, you know. Some mornings I surprise the Husband and me by making a hot breakfast. I hadn't planned on it today but I started flipping through a cookbook  because I decided to weed out the cookbook collection. After all how many cookbooks do I need when I'm not one to follow a recipe the way it's written?

I didn't know I had a Costco cookbook (I wonder if I got it for free). It has lots of cool photos illustrating short and delicious-sounding recipes from big-time chefs such as Mary Esposito and Jamie Oliver. I found a recipe towards the end of the cookbook that inspired today's breakfast. Coincidentally, the Husband walked into the kitchen as the oven light bulb lit over my head.

The poor Husband. I often, if not nearly almost, don't consider that the Husband is still waking up when I ask him hard questions, like this morning:  "Doesn't horseradish mayonnaise sound good? Would you like a roast beef sandwich with horseradish mayonnaise for breakfast?"

"Roast beef sandwich for breakfast," he repeated. He's thinking it's not a breakfast food. He'd like the sandwich. He knows he would. 

"We have horseradish mayonnaise?" he asked. I tell you, I literally saw a question mark over his head.

"No, but I can easily make it. We have horseradish and we have mayonnaise. What do you think? A roast beef sandwich for breakfast. I can add an avocado to it."

"Mmm. We have roast beef?"

"It's in the freezer."

"Meat takes a long time." He kind of looked disappointed.

"It's cooked already. I saw the container of roast beef in the freezer the other day. A few pieces left. I pop them into the toaster oven to defrost. What do you say?"

"Sure, I'll have a roast beef sandwich for breakfast."

The result was a roast beef-farmer's cheese sandwich on sliced sourdough bread, on which I spread a horseradish, avocado, and minced red onion mayonnaise mixture. Next time I'll skip the mayonnaise. I also added an overflowing handful of baby lettuces for good measure. Yummmm.

I ask you: When was the last time you had a roast beef sandwich for breakfast?

  1. I can eat anything at any time and I have, in the past, had some very odd things for breakfast but so far never a roast beef sandwich :)

    1. The Husband and I may have embarked into an era of lunch (or dinner) for breakfast, which is fine with me. I got into the habit of cooking breakfast for dinner when the Mama was alive because we didn't eat breakfasts together.

    1. Mushing avocado, horseradish, and minced red onion (with or without mayonnaise) is a delightful mixture.

  3. Su-sieeemac! This is hilarious!!! I can deeply relate to this sentence: "The poor Husband. I often, if not nearly almost, don't consider that the Husband is still waking up when I ask him hard questions" LOL!!! And I don't think I have ever had a roast beef sandwich for breakfast!

  4. You are so funny! I too can eat almost anything for breakfast. I'm hungry as soon as I wake up, just give me some food!

  5. Many moons ago I decided that having specific things for specific meals was rather boring. If I want to have porridge for supper, then so be it. :)

    1. I wonder who started the trend of such and such food for breakfast, that for lunch, and this for dinner. I suppose cookbooks reinforced the dogma. Hmmm, got me wondering.

  6. Why not have a dinner sandwich for breakfast! There is no rule that one can’t. I will stick to my toast and honey though😋

    1. So true, no rule at all. At least one we can hear. :-)
