I extend all my breakfast sandwich love to any variations of this creation. English muffins. Pepperjack Cheese. Gouda cheese. Roasted red peppers. Magic Green Sauce. Fried eggs with a runny yolk.
How To Make Eggs For a Breakfast Sandwich
The essential is obviouslythe soft scramble, which we talked about at length earlier this week. This is no McD’s breakfast sandwich (although, to be fair, I have been known to eat and love a Sausage Biscuit with Egg in moments of weakness). But no, there are no perfectly formed egg disk here.
We’re talking about super creamy, gently cooked, soft scrambled eggs. Life changing.
If scrambled eggs aren’t your thing, you have options. You could make eggs on a sheet pan for a crowd. Cook your eggs fried or sunny side up. Poach it. Your choice!
Breakfast Sandwich: Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use a different kind of bread for this sandwich?
I mean, you could… but also a buttery toasted croissant here is just TOO GOOD. An English muffin would work great here in a pinch as well.
What other sauces could I use?
Magic Green Sauce would also be a REAL WIN here. Salsa. Your favorite hot sauce. Whatever you like to top on your eggs.
What could I serve this with for brunch?
A delicious simple arugula or mixed greens salad with vinaigrette would be great here. Also: fruit, juice and/or mimosas, pastries of some kind, and (obviously) lots of coffee.
How could I make this vegetarian?
Just omit the bacon! Maybe even replace with roasted mushrooms!? Yum.
Could I freeze this breakfast sandwich?
This is more of a fresh, slow weekend morning kind of breakfast sandwich. If you’re looking for something to prep ahead and freeze, take a look at our Meal Prep Breakfast Sandwiches with some easy sheet pan eggs.
In the last month: I’ve made these for myself, then our team, then for our friend Joe when he stayed with us for a few days, and again during the week to make life a little more manageable. Overkill and I care zero percent. ♡
