Canadian Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwich

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.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. Wow- that looks totally delicious! Have you ever tried a muffaletta? It’s a New Orleans style sandwich and it’s my absolute favorite!
