Oh, fall -- Let me count the ways I love you. Other than all things apples and pumpkins, tailgating screams Fall. Ok, maybe it's just the football fan in me, but either way tailgating is definitely a fall thing. Plus, it's full of food. Food that tastes delicious, but probably isn't good for you.

If I know I'm tailgating or attending a Sunday BBQ, to watch football, I like to start my day off with a healthy, balanced meal. Typically full of veggies and fruit.

This is where MorningStar Farms comes in handy. Not only is it a healthy option, but it's quick and easy. #winning

Yesterday was MNF and after getting home from Crossfit I really didn't feel like making anything big. So naturally I whipped up breakfast for dinner. Have I told you how I LOVE breakfast for dinner? Well, I do.  I actually made a black bean fried egg sandwich!

Black Bean Breakfast Sandwich
Serves 1

1 Spicy Black Bean Burger [MorningStar Farms]
1 egg
1 small handful of spinach
1 slice swiss cheese
1/4 medium Avocado
1/4 cup pepproncini [dried; I like a lot]
1 wheat bun
Mustard to taste [I prefer yellow]
Salt + Pepper to taste

Place thawed burger in a non-stick frying pan and cook over medium heat for 6-7 minutes, turning burger frequently.

Meanwhile,  heat another frying pan over medium heat. Make sure to spray with cooking spray. Begin to fry your egg, add a a pinch of salt and pepper.

Start to assemble your bun -- pepperoncini's, mustard, avocado, etc. If you want your cheese melted add to the burger around 5/6 minutes and cover. Don't forget to check your egg. Once cheese is melted place burger on bun. Next up your egg should be ready -- top burger with egg [I like it over medium]. Finish off with spinach and enjoy!

Additional Toppings to try: onions, tomatoes, bacon,etc.

Blogger Notes: Not a fan of fried eggs? Try scrambled. Want GF? Enjoy over a bed of spinach. Options are endless.

How do you kick off Sunday-Funday during football season?

BTW -- I found my burgers at my favorite store, TARGET!
