I have discovered a new love. Something I thought I’d have to live without forever. The Breakfast Sandwich.
See when I was pregnant with Ann (who is my dairy allergy kid) I developed an egg allergy. How weird is that? Eggs, while sold in the dairy section at the store, are not in fact, dairy. It’s a whole different animal. Now my throat won’t close up and I won’t die. My stomach will just do things that make me wish I were dead. So eggs and me? We stay far away from one another.
This problem has seriously affected my fast food breakfast choices. See if I eat a pastry or a donut, well I might as well just go back to bed cuz in a matter of minutes after ingestion; I am looking for a soft place to lie down. I need some protein. It’s a little tricky to get a breakfast sandwich, sans eggs, with protein. So I simply have not been able to imbibe in the last 9 years. Whataburger Breakfast tequito, how I have missed you.
However, things changed for me forever last weekend. While I was in Houston, we stopped at Whataburger for breakfast. I thought I was destined go without breakfast, but hark! What is that on the menu? A Honey Butter Chicken Sandwich you say? Let me try that!
My friends it is a match made in heaven. Protein in the chicken, sugar in the honey all on the wonderful flakey goodness that is the biscuit. Now don’t get me wrong. I am not suggesting this breakfast sandwich is healthy. I am not that delusional, but it’s better than a donut, and it won’t make my stomach revolt.
I think I’ll be seeing a lot more of the old Whataburger in the future.
