Mozzarella and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Mozzarella and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

For an easy, healthy egg breakfast sandwich, try this one made with roasted peppers, basil, and mozzarella cheese.  For easy meal prep, make 6 or more of these on Sunday and store them in the freezer wrapped individually in parchment paper and then in a zip-lock bag.  To thaw, simply pull one out and place in the Microwave on Defrost for 1 minute (Courtesy of Beachbody)
