The ham sandwich or the hammy or the ham sammich – no matter what it is called – is arguably the best breakfast you could ever make for yourself. I know what you are thinking, oh goodness has Mr. Bricks ever heard of Mama Cass? Yes, I have. And how terrible would it be to force my loved ones to find me slumped over at my breakfast nook wearing just my underpants, with a diet coke and 1/2 eaten sandwich on the floor. Well, folks that’s just how I roll. I live life on the edge. It’s a risk I am willing to take.
The reasons I like having a ham sandwich for breakfast are simple:
It’s very economical
No driving to McDonald’s for their overpriced $3.00 Egg McMuffin or Sausage McMuffin
No need of having to tip a cranky ass waitress at Denny’s, IHOP or Perkins
No bacon smells filling the house and lingering the rest of the day
It doesn’t require milk
A note for the health nutritional nut cases out there – I get that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is why I don’t want to junk it up with the standard breakfast fare of fried eggs, fried bacon, toast with massive quantities of dripping butter and a huge glass of sugar laden orange juice. I know I need to look good in my Speedo. I do not think of a body as a temple, but kinda like a really nice Las Vegas Casino resort!
To me having a ham sandwich for breakfast is a logical choice, but what do I know? It’s true, you don’t see Mr. Bricks starring in his own Food Channel spectacular like Andrew Zimmern who eats sheep hooves or fly testicles in places like Bombay, India now do you? Nope, not me, I am just a simple guy walking through life with his dog at his side, eating one ham sandwich at a time.
Have a great day!
