Meet our new Saturday morning tradition.

Warm crusty bread, fried bacon, fried egg, arugula, melted monterey jack cheese, homemade herb spread. Hands down greatest breakfast sandwich.

I typically stay away from classic breakfast sandwiches. AKA McDonald’s McMuffins because the eggs and ham always taste so fake and gross. Sorry to be so blunt, but it’s true. I take my breakfast sandwiches very seriously, but I also can’t live without them. There is nothing better than starting a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee in one hand and a breakfast sandwich in the other. Warm, comforting, and soooo satisfying.

When it comes to breakfast sandwiches, it’s really all about good ingredients – good bread, GREAT bacon, good eggs. You also need to turn to take this to the next level by adding warm green onions for extra flavor. Then just melt some monterey jack cheese and find some delicious bread. If you can do that, you’ll be guaranteed a winner breakfast sandwich.

On of my favorite things about this sandwich is how the whole thing is made in a skillet… toppings layer on top of the egg and then held together with a melty piece of cheese on top. Making it like this make everything warm and melty.

The Best Breakfast Sandwich

This hearty breakfast sandwich is stuffed with eggs, arugula, herb spread, and flavorful bacon. Perfect for a weekend morning!

Ingredients:

4 eggs

1 teaspoon butter

Salt & Pepper, to taste

2 everything bagels or 4 slices of sourdough bread, (or bagel/other bread of choice)

4 slices bacon, cooked

2 slices of Monterey Jack Cheese

1/2 cup green onions, thinly sliced

Mayonaise

arugula

2 pieces of parchment paper

Directions:

If you are making lots of sandwiches, preheat oven to 200 degrees so that you can keep them worst.

In a medium skillet, sauté the green onions with a pinch of salt until soft and a little bit crispy. Remove from skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, fry the bacon. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Toast bagels/breast if desired. Set aside.

Over very low heat, melt butter in the skillet and crack two eggs in the pan. Separate and gently break the yolks (if you don’t like runny yolks!) Sprinkle salt and pepper on eggs.

Once eggs are cooked through, lay two slices of bacon on one egg, sprinkle green onions on top of bacon, lay cheese on top of green onions, and let cheese melt. Lay of a piece of foil over the pan for a more even melting of the cheese.

Meanwhile, spread mayonnaise on both sides of toasted bagel or bread.

Gently life the egg without the toppings on top of the egg with all the topping. Place the eggs on the sandwich and sprinkle on more green onions, if desired.Top with arugula if desired and then with other half of the bagel/bread and fold parchment paper in half. Place bagel between layers and wrap so that the bottom half of the sandwich is in parchment paper.
