Pesto Egg Sandwich

I have been working out a lot lately (10% to my goal weight!) and today I was craving eggs (probably needing the protein).  So after not finding a recipe to fit my wants/needs... I made my own... Enjoy

-Picture to come soon-

Pesto Egg Sandwich

2 slices of bread
1 oz reduced fat cream cheese
1/2 tbls of basil pesto
.5 oz of sun dried tomatoes
1 egg

Toast the bread.

Hard boil the egg- put in saucepan fill with cold water, bring to a boil on medium-high heat, boil for 12 minutes, rinse with cold water.

Spread the cream cheese on one side of each bread.  Spread the pesto on top of the cream cheese.  Add your sundried tomatoes to one of the bread slices.  Slice the egg and put on the other bread slice, put together.  Eat and Enjoy....
