Sourdough Grilled Cheese Sandwich topped with a Drippy Happy Egg.

This post is sponsored by Happy Egg Co®

Feeling pretty HAPPY about my lunch choice today. You really can’t go wrong with a grilled cheese sandwich, especially when that grilled cheese is topped with a drippy Happy Egg Organic Free Range Egg™!

It took me a long time to really care about the ingredients that I was consuming and the brands that I was supporting by purchasing their products at the grocery store. The old me would just buy the first thing I saw without taking a glance at the ingredients or knowing anything about the brand. It was really during my first pregnancy that I started to buckle down on choosing certain items more wisely. Something about growing a tiny human that makes you double think what you’re putting in your body. One of the brands and products that I’m most fond of lately is Happy Egg Organic Free Range Eggs! My number one craving during this pregnancy has been eggs and sourdough toast and nothing has made me happier than a Happy Egg scrambled on some toast with butter. I ate a scrambled Happy Egg everyday for the first 14 weeks! This baby boy really loves his eggs.

Happy Egg Organic Free Range Eggs are USDA Certified Organic and their hens are lovingly raised under the highest animal humane standards, so we can make better-tasting, happier choices for the whole family. Happy Egg chooses happiness for their hens by giving them over 8 acres of pasture to roam, which is important because most eggs at your grocery store come from hens who never go outside. I truly believe that happy hen’s eggs taste better and Happy Egg eggs are the best eggs I’ve ever tasted!

Sourdough Grilled Cheese Sandwich topped with a Drippy Happy Egg:

  • 2 slices sourdough
  • 2 ounces cheese of choice (I used white cheddar cheese)
  • 1/2 of an avocado
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1-2 Tablespoons grass fed butter
  • 1 Happy Egg Organic Free Range Egg

Directions:

  • Heat a flat skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick spray.
    Spread the grass fed butter on both sides of each slice of sourdough bread. Toast one side of each of the bread slices on the skillet until golden brown. Flip each bread slice over and top one slice with the mashed avocado, cheese, and spinach. Place the other bread slice on top (toasted side DOWN on the fillings) and toast on the bottom until golden and then flip the sandwich over to toast the other side until golden brown. I like to place a pan lid over the top of my grilled cheese to help the sandwich toast quicker and melt the insides really good!
  • Remove the grilled cheese from the pan and set on a cutting board and cover with a lid pan to keep warm while frying your egg.
  • Heat a small pan over medium heat and spray with nonstick spray or a little drizzle of olive oil. Crack open a Happy Egg Organic Free Range Egg onto the hot pan and let cook until desired yolk consistency. I love my eggs over easy!
  • Cut your grilled cheese in half, stack, and top with the egg! Make a little slice in the yolk of your cooked Happy Egg Organic Free Range Egg to let the yolk drip all over the grilled cheese and devour!

Within the last few weeks there has been one thing I can’t seem to get enough of, EGGS. And not just your average eggs, but Happy Egg Free Range Eggs™. I have never, ever, tasted an egg quite like these eggs. It’s actually the only item I made sure to have Joel grab extras of at the grocery store. Since we (well, Joel) aren’t going out to grocery shop but once every two weeks I needed to make sure we’d have enough nutritious and delicious options on hand to keep my belly, and heart, happy. Happy Egg goes above and beyond to ensure that they are choosing happy for their hens, keeping them happy and healthy. Their hens are lovingly raised under the highest animal humane standards. Happy Egg hens roam free over 8 acres of pasture, which is important considering most eggs at your grocery store come from hens who never go outside. If my family is going to eat eggs, then I want them to be the best eggs around and come from happy hens. Also, just look at that yolk color! You can trust that a yolk color like this means that Happy Egg eggs are the real deal. Truly no filter needed.

Savory Turmeric Cauli-Oats Bowl:

  • 1/3 cup GF oats (or whatever oats you have in your pantry)
  • 2/3 cup riced cauliflower (frozen or fresh work)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (may sub for honey)
  • 1 cup water or milk of choice
  • 1 egg white (to be mixed in near the end of cooking the cauli-oats. You may omit the egg white, but it really helps the texture of the cauli-oats. I would add an additional tbsp of chia seeds if you decide to omit.)

Toppings:

  • 1/4 sliced avocado
  • 1 poached Happy Egg free range egg (may use an over easy egg as well)

Directions:

  • Place oats, cauliflower, and liquid of choice in a medium size pot. Set over medium high heat and leave until the liquid starts to boil. 
  • Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and stir in the turmeric, black pepper, chia seeds, and maple syrup (or honey). Let cook for 10-15 minutes and stir often.
  • Once the oats are almost done cooking (meaning the water is almost all the way absorbed) mix in the egg white. Continue to mix for 30 seconds to make sure the egg white is fully combined. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes and pour the cauli-oats into a bowl.
  • Top with avocado slices and poached egg (or over easy!). Slice open the yolk to let it drip all over the oats before enjoying.

Cooking for my family makes me so happy and having Poppy as my sidekick in the kitchen is the icing on the cake… or should I say egg on the cauli-oat bowl. The kitchen has just been the center of our home now more than ever so I’m trying to find creative ways to make it a place of peace – from the ingredients I’m choosing to the recipes Poppy and I are creating together. I truly cannot stress enough how comforting it is to have some of my favorite products on hand during this strange time that we’re in. For those who are interested, visit https://happyegg.com/store-locator so you can see if Happy Eggs are near you, though if you are heading out to the grocery store, please be safe and conscientious of your health + the health of others! P.S. I’m in contact with the Happy Egg team and they let me know they are doing everything they can to keep store shelves stocked during this time of need. Comment below your thoughts on this recipe. I was nervous to try savory cauli-oats at first but now I’m hooked. Now where’s my spoon? I’m ready to dig in!
