Gluten Free/Dairy Free Breakfast Sandwich

Being gluten free and/or dairy free isn’t always easy. I love breakfast food, so I really love this gluten free and dairy free breakfast sandwich my daughter created.

Gluten and dairy free breakfast sandwich

It’s a lower fat, lower sodium version of a popular fast food sandwich, with a little Italian twist. Plus, if you or someone in your family has food allergies, you might especially appreciate it.

We’ve been gluten free for many years here. I have gluten issues, and other family members do, too, along with dairy allergies.

We love the gluten free English muffins from both Food for Life and Glutino.  And, I finally found a dairy free, gluten free, soy free cheese that we like.

My daughter is the queen of microwave cooking, by the way. But she cooks from scratch with healthy ingredients.

So, here’s the sandwich…

Ingredients for a Gluten and Dairy Free Breakfast Sandwich:

  • Olive Oil
  • Gluten Free English Muffins (We like the gluten free, brown rice ones from Food for Life and the ones from Glutino)
  • Egg
  • Daiya Dairy Free Cheddar Shreds (No dairy, gluten, or soy)
  • Breakfast Sausages- links or patties. (We use the fully cooked turkey sausage links from Jones Dairy Farm. They come in pork, chicken, or turkey, in both links and patties. They don’t have nitrates or nitrites,  and they’re microwaveable.)
  • Garlic Powder and Oregano (Optional)

How to Make It

First, put a little olive oil in a small, microwaveable bowl. (Maybe, half a tablespoon or so. We don’t measure things too often here!  Except when we’re baking, that is.)

Crack an egg in the bowl, whisk the egg, and then sprinkle with a little garlic powder and oregano. (Optional!)  Cover the bowl with a paper towel (to avoid an egg explosion) and microwave the  egg for about a minute and 10 seconds. (The time will vary with every microwave. Just cook it until it’s done to your liking.)

Prepare a few breakfast sausages.

Toast the English muffin. (We use the Gluten Free Brown Rice English Muffins by Food for Life. They’re tasty and made with organic brown rice.)  I butter mine.

Sprinkle the toasted muffin with the Daiya cheese. Don’t add the egg and sausage just yet. Microwave the cheese on the muffin for about 50 seconds or until melted.

Now add the egg and sausage to the cheesy muffin, and enjoy.

  1. That looks great! I would have never thought to add garlic and oregano to an egg, but that just sounds delicious.

  2. Loving this! We have several similar dietary restrictions. We have a great dairy/wheat/ egg free pancake recipe on our blog.

  3. Hi Pam! Thanks for checking out my blog. Your breakfast looks delicious. I have a friend who makes most of her foods gluten-free and she says she really notices a difference in her health by preparing her meals that way. I haven't really tried many gluten-free foods myself though.
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi, Pam! Thank you so much for your sweet comment! ;D I should tell my friend with Celiac disease about this! I bet she'll find the info here useful. I'm not sure she'll be able to find these products in Argentina, though, the States are so much more advanced in terms of food!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hugs to you and your kitty :p.


  5. My husband has several diseases and we are dairy free and soy free per doctors instructions. Yes, even I've lost a lot of weight! And my nails and hair are better without dairy.

    The recipe is great but I really have to find the cheese. We stopped trying "fake" cheeses a long time ago and we couldn't even have them now if we wanted because of the soy. But it looks like you found something! Thanks for the tip.

  6. I have to try the garlic and oregano next time I make eggs. I'll pass this on to my many friends who are looking for GF, DF, and SF recipes.

  7. Happy Sharefest! 🙂 That looks yummy! I love recipes like this that look "normal" even when they follow allergy-friendly guidelines. 😀 Thanks for sharing!

  8. This looks really good! Forgive my ignorance, but I didn't know about dairy free cheese. Can you find it at Walmart?

  9. Looks yummy! I was thinking about going gluten-free diet. Maybe I'll try this!
