This is a favorite in our house.
My kids love/loved it.
My little buds in daycare love it.
The amazingly simple and delicious BREAKFAST SANDWICH!!!
Typical breakfast fare
Eggs fried or scrambled
Cheese (American, Swiss, Cheddar, etc.)
(Mushrooms, peppers, onions, etc. can be added, but I don't want an omelette when I make a breakfast sandwich... I'm looking for an outstanding array of culinary EASINESS that tastes awesome together.)
Scramble or fry eggs.
Toast or broil bagel, biscuit or English Muffin
(Chewy, fresh bagels win the toss here... but they make HUGE sandwiches, like 1 1/2 egg per sandwich....
But that chewiness... Oy, that's the ticket!
Lightly butter bagel/muffin/biscuit while warm. Add the egg and meat. Put top on.
We like scrambled eggs with our breakfast sandwiches, and there's always a crowd so I crack 12-14 eggs into a bowl.... I whisk them really well (free upper arm work-out, YAY!!!!) then I cook them in a preheated BIG skillet.....
When they're almost done, I flatten them against the bottom of the pan and let them cook for another minute or so over medium heat. Then I cut the big, round circle of scrambled egg into 7 pieces, 2/3/2
Then I put cheese on top of each piece. Turn off heat. Cover. This will melt the cheese without overcooking the eggs.
Now you're ready to remove each "sandwich-sized egg" and put it on its bagel-ly resting place.
All told, it's about a 15 minute meal (and that's if you're pan grilling the bacon. In the microwave? You can take 5 minutes off that estimate!
A great Saturday night "pick-up" supper!
