Breakfast BLT

Breakfast BLT

I’ve been laid up lately hence why I have not had time to do much cooking. I recently went in for what I thought was going to be a quick dermatology appointment, of which turned into the doctor cutting my neck open, and laying me up at home for an entire week. To say the least it has not been pretty. I had a hard time eating as my face and neck were wrapped up in bandages, but on Thursday afternoon everything was cleared and now I am able to wear a bandage on my neck. Again, not pretty, but now I am finally feeling human again, plus I am now able to open my mouth to finally eat!

With that said, I decided I was going to make a great breakfast sandwich, and one that was somewhat healthy (yes, there’s bacon). First I thought I was going just make my Denver breakfast sandwich as my wife and I really loved that one, but then I decided that I wanted a BLT, but as it was getting a bit late in the morning, I decided I would take my ultimate BLT and turn it into a breakfast BLT. What’s not to love about that, right?

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of bread, toasted
  • 1 whole roma tomato, sliced
  • Your favorite bacon, cooked
  • 1 whole avocado, lightly smashed
  • Your favorite green lettuce, washed, and torn
  • 1 whole egg, cooked sunny side up
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

Make sure you have prepared all of your ingredients ahead of time.

Cook your egg in a skillet with the melted butter. I went sunny side up, but my wife wanted her eggs scrambled, which I so kindly made for her. So cook your egg however you like them.

To the bottom piece of toast, lather on the mayonnaise. Next layer on the bacon, covering the bottom of the toast.

Add the torn lettuce, slices of tomatoes, and top with the cooked egg.

To the other piece of toasted bread, spread on the avocado.

Add the avocado bread to the top of the egg, and as it may slide a bit, take a butter knife and insert it to the middle of the bread, going all of the way through.

As I made my wife’s sandwich first, I kept asking her ‘how is it?’. Her response was ‘this is so awesome, I cannot put it down!’. I knew this would be a great sandwich, and an awesome one to start of the day.

If you are looking for a great breakfast sandwich, give this one a try, it was a real winner in my opinion. Hope you enjoy!
