It could possibly be my all time favorite breakfast, sandwich that is. I think that from a young age, I great up having a McDonald’s egg mcmuffin sandwich from time to time. I think it has something to do with the great smell of Canadian bacon.
Breakfast, and sandwiches are my favorite, and I love a hearty breakfast during the weekend. The combination of a over easy egg, bacon, and slightly melted American cheese is just one flavor profiles that reminds me of an all American meal. I am trying to get at least one of my kids to enjoy this sandwich, but the over easy egg is something that cannot get past. Oh well, I will keep trying until they finally realize how awesome this sandwich is.
- 1/2 tbsp butter
- 1 egg, cooked over easy
- Canadian bacon, 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
- 1 slice of American cheese
- White bread, toasted, thick cut
- salt and pepper to taste, optional
Begin by warming a large skillet, spraying with just a bit of cooking spray. Cook your slices of Canadian bacon, for approximately 2-3 minutes per side. During this time, melt the butter in a smaller skillet. Carefully crack your egg and cook until the white of the egg firms up a bit, but the center is just lightly loose. Carefully flip over with a spatula, season with a bit of salt and pepper, then lay on the American cheese.
Toast your bread.
Lay a piece of toast down, top with the egg and cheese, and top with the warm Canadian bacon. Top with the other piece of toast. Gently press down, releasing some of the yolk as it is great for dipping. Dig in and enjoy.
