One of the earliest staples for my breakfast meals was a fried egg sandwich. They started with just a fried egg, some melted cheese and some toast with a little mayo, salt and pepper. I loved it that way for years, and then started switching it up a bit. One of my favorite things for breakfast is a breakfast burrito or sandwich and my husband still requests an “egg sandwich original,” which is what I call that original version of this sandwich.
Sometimes you just get tired of the original way, and want something a little different. As I mentioned in my breakfast pita post, nothing compares to egg, bacon and avocado with breakfast. So once again those ingredients are the star with this sandwich. It’s similar to a grilled cheese, with fried egg and my other breakfast favorites. My husband likes these with 2 fried eggs and a few shakes of hot sauce. However you like it, they’re 100% delicious!
- 2 slices sandwich bread
- one egg
- one slice cheese (I use traditional Kraft American Singles, you can use any cheese you prefer)
- 1 large slice, thick cut bacon
- 1/4 avocado, sliced
- butter or margarine
- salt & pepper
|Start by cooking your bacon.
In a separate small pan, lightly spray and preheat over medium heat. Crack open your egg, and quickly break the yolk. Continue to cook for a few minutes over medium heat.
|Once the edges become a little solid start using your spatula to get under the egg to turn. Once it’s solid enough to turn, flip it over!|
|Now add your fried egg, with the melted cheese portion face down so it’s lying on the bacon.
Season, as desired, with salt and pepper.
(This is where I add those few shakes of hot sauce for the hubby)
|Now spread butter or margarine on the outsides of the sandwich. You can pan fry it like a grilled cheese, or use a panini press. I’d love a panini press, but I just use my George Foreman grill.
I close the top and let it heat for a few minutes.
|Once it’s done it’s a melted, toasted sandwich full of deliciousness!|
|Cut and serve, I like to serve with fruit or my breakfast potatoes. Enjoy!|
