Don’t you love me?
This morning I sat up in bed looked at Donner, who was trying to eat my favorite decorative pillow, and said, “BREAKFAST SANDWICHES”.
He barked at me and went back to chewing. He didn’t get a breakfast sandwich.
Here’s what you need for 2 Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches (spicy):
- 2 bagels, I like plain or seeded
- 3-4 slices of thick cut premium peppered bacon
- 2 fried eggs with the yolks broken
- 2 slices pepper jack cheese
There are 2 keys to making breakfast sandwiches that make or break the experience for me. Actually I lied there’s 3.
First, I must get the ingredients at the market early Sunday morning. There is no better time to be in the grocery store. Don’t be all organized, plan ahead and hit the market Friday afternoon. Ambiance is half the breakfast bagel sandwich experience.
Second, I always fry the eggs in the bacon grease and break the yolks. I hate it when runny yolk squirts out onto my hands.
Third, I have to get the uuber thick, premium bacon. Just do it and don’t think about it.
I like to melt the cheese under the broiler. And I always put the cheese between the egg and the bacon. The cheese is the glue.
Donner is totally pouting because he wishes he had a sandwich too. I told him “that’s what happens when I have a brilliant idea and you bark at me”.
He’s glaring at me, right now!
