I've done the same thing with a poached or scrambled egg and either the sausage (morningstar farms) or their bacon, a half slice of cheddar cheese (reduced fat) and sometimes a little extra. It is very tasty and doesn't take long at all.

My husband LOVES those sausage breakfast muffins you get at fast food restaurants so I wanted to make him a healthier version. You really can't taste the difference and since it takes less than 5 minutes to put together I even make it on weekdays!

vegetarian breakfast patty, the one I buy is morningstar (45 seconds in the microwave)
light multigrain english muffin lightly toasted
a slice of 2% american cheese
a 2 egg white omlette which takes about 3 minutes to make

All together it's 264 calories 7g of fat 27g of protein!!!! and 9g of fiber.

I just toast the muffin and nuke the patty while the eggs are cooking and you have a healthy really quick breakfast that keeps you full all morning.

Breakfast is cottage cheese with ground flax seed and some tomato.

I batch cook, so I will take a day and boil a chicken and then I will freeze all the meat and make chicken stock out of the water.

I also make my own corn tortillas (you don't need to) and I will make a large batch of mashed beans. Lunch will then be corn tortilla, mashed beans and chicken. Already made, just needs to be reheated.

I subscribe to a website called NoTakeOut. Although some of the meals are designed for weekends when you have more time, many are for walking in the door from work and having dinner on the table very quickly. It gives a list of ingredients and equipment as well as step by step directions. One I got this week used fresh tomatoes, goat cheese, pasta and spinach [I think since I am doing this from memory].

For breakfast, peanut butter (or lately almond butter) on whole grain toast with a piece of fruit. Doesn't get much quicker than that!

For breakfast it's a smoothie...for dinner, it's a turkey burger on the george foreman or a salad or a reheat...would like to see others' suggestions...

One of the Daily Spark blogs discusses several folks go-to, 5 minute meals. I actually have a cookbook called Lickety-Split Meals, which I should probably become more familiar with. In the meantime, I probably rely on frozen too much.

Having said that, what are your go-to, 5 minute meals?
