Start the day with ribeye and eggs. Save your grilled ribeye leftovers to make easy meal combinations like sandwiches.

Ribeye Leftovers


Feed your fluffy-feeling self (a new norm since beginning of pandemic days) with a yummy ribeye and egg sandwich for breakfast.

Ribeye Leftovers for Sandwiches

You’re not alone in fighting against snack attacks. I’m right there with you. It’s the stay-at-home multiple trips-to-the-fridge syndrome. And it’s caused by not being able to go out and about the way we’re used to.

So we eat. And. Get. Fluffy.

Start the day with eggs for breakfast. Protein makes the belly feel full. If you don’t have enough protein, then you can expect snack and sweet cravings.

I’m speaking for myself, not on behalf of or as a health or medical advisor. But this is what I observe in my own eating habits.

Yes, I know too many eggs can mean too much cholesterol. Again, this isn’t medical advice. I love eggs and could eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or supper for my deep-South friends).

Meals to Cook for Breakfast

Let’s have some fun coming up with meals to cook for breakfast. Food for thought – breakfast can be any time of the day.

Write the numbers one through five in a list. Jot down five ideas you can think of for an egg meal. Ready, set, go.

Now compare your list with mine below. See any different ones?

  1. quiche – Make a ribeye or hamburger quiche. Easy to do with leftovers. See my beef quiche recipe.
  2. breakfast sandwich – Not everyone in your family likes eggs? Not a problem. Make this easy-to-make sausage and veggie sandwich – and no eggs.
  3. eggs, bacon, and toast – How about a BLT on cinnamon raisin bread?
  4. omelet – And here’s a healthy garden veggie omelet recipe with ground turkey,.
  5. fried egg and ribeye breakfast – Make the recipe I’m sharing in this blog post. Jump to the recipe…Jump to Recipe
  6. fried egg burger – How about a burger for breakfast or brunch? Top off the burger with the fried egg, and it’s like eating breakfast and lunch all in a big fat hamburger. I ate an amazing fried egg burger in Galveston, Texas. Read more and see the photo here.

  3. Put mayo or mustard (or both) to the bread, add the ribeye strips, top it with the fried eggs, and it's ready to eat.

Recipe Notes

Cut the steak into squares instead of slices if you prefer. It may be easier to eat that way.

Make two eggs if you're very hungry. Have half a sandwich with part of the ribeye slices and one egg. Toast the other piece of bread, butter it, and enjoy it with the other egg and rest of the ribeye leftovers. 

This ribeye was grilled by my husband who grills the best, juiciest ribeye steaks. We have a system. I season the steaks the night before he plans to grill, and he does the grilling.

We both love charcoal grilled steaks. All you need is a simple charcoal grill like this one:

I use different seasonings. One of my go-to seasonings for steaks is Six Seasonings (shown in the Amazon link below). It doesn’t contain any salt.

I season the edges of the steaks with kosher salt which greatly enhances the flavor of the steaks in my opinion. 

Grilled ribeye is my favorite steak. Occasionally (especially in the warmer months), hubby enjoys grilling early in the morning.

I like to fry eggs and serve them with the ribeye and buttered toast. Mmmm good. That kind of breakfast is filling – and delicious.
