In need of more breakfast options (that I can eat in the car)

bjd001 | Aug 31, 2012 11:17 AM

So I like to eat breakfast in the car on my way to work. My go-to option was a peanut-butter-on-toast sandwich. Got some protein and good fats from the natural PB and some fiber from the whole-grain bread. But I recently developed a sensitivity to PB and I need some other options.

So far I've tried a ham or turkey sandwich on that same whole-grain bread and an egg and some ham on a toasted English muffin. (Microwave one egg in a ramekin the same diameter as the muffin and top with a slice of ham.)

It needs to be quick to make and not messy to eat. The ham or turkey sandwich is ok, but I've discovered I'm not that fond of mustard that early in the morning. Any ideas for spreads that would be better?

I've considered something along the lines of a breakfast burrito, but I'm not sure that will meet the non-messy requirement. I need to be able to hold it in one hand.

Prefer somewhat healthier options.
