The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

Pin It

I just love breakfast.  A huge breakfast on the weekend mornings is always nice, I'll even take the ever popular brinner (breakfast for dinner) every once in a while.  This breakfast sandwich is sure to please your morning-time (or anytime) tastebuds:  eggs in a nest meets grilled cheese plus bacon for added yumminess! 


  • 2 slices of bread (I would suggest a loaf that has slices that are longer than an average piece of bread)
  • Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 slice of American cheese (I didn't want it to be too cheesy, however, if you want more cheese, go for it!)
  • 2 slices of bacon (More if you want)


Generously spray a medium-sized pan with cooking spray, then put the pan on the stove over medium-low heat.

Cook the bacon (I did mine in the microwave.  Place the bacon on a plate, and cook for 3 minutes, flipping the pieces half-way through.)

Cut a hole in each slice of bread.  To do this, I used a cup as a "cookie cutter."  Firmly press down in the center of the bread with the cup to cut out a hole.  Only do one slice at a time.

Butter once side of each slice.

Place both slice, butter-side down, into the heated pan.

After a few minutes, flip the slices over.

Once the pan is nice and warm (this is important, making sure the pan is pretty warm will help the egg-whites to stay in one place instead of running all over the pan) crack each of the eggs, being careful not to break the yoke, and one egg into each one of the holes in the bread (I like to crack the eggs into a bowl first.)

Allow the eggs to cook for a few minutes.

Carefully flip each slice of bread over.

Layer the cheese and the bacon on one of the slices.

After the eggs have cooked for a few minutes (I like my egg yokes runny, so if you want them to be more cooked, leave them on for a few additional minutes) put the two halves of your breakfast sandwich together and serve!

This sandwich is great!  It has all the makings of a wonderful breakfast all in one; cheese, meat, eggs, and toast.  Serve this sandwich with orange or apple juice and you've got yourself a sure winner!
