BAE Breakfast Sandwich
My "colleagues" wear clothes from Abercrombie & Fitch, obsess over flipping water bottles, and talk in a language that I work hard to understand. I'm an English teacher, and yes I consider my students to be my colleagues. But the English language has evolved into something that encourages a generational barrier, so I pride myself on attempting to decipher their language. Mostly because it is important to know that when one of them says to me, "Ms. G those shoes are on fleek", I know it means I should definitely keep wearing them.
So when I came across a sandwich called "BAE" it immediately piqued my interest. And now that I have tried this Bacon Avocado Egg sandwich I can certainly tell you that it is the ultimate breakfast sandwich "Before Anything Else".
Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich
Yield - Serves 1 very hungry person
1 tbsp. butter
2 slices, GOOD bacon
2 eggs, beaten
2 slices, American cheese
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
thinly sliced tomato, avocado, & white onion
Preheat your oven to 400. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil, and bake bacon for 20 minutes (or pan fry, we like this for cleanup purposes but either way works.) Slice your brioche, and pop it in the oven for 5 minutes or so (we don't own toasters which probably deserves a whole other blog post, but obviously that method is preferred.) Heat butter in pan, add your eggs, and swirl them around the pan as if you were making an omelette. You can move slightly with a spatula, until the eggs are almost cooked, being careful not to break them up. Add cheese to center, then fold up the sides to make a pocket. Cook 1 minute more, then remove from heat. Take your toasted brioche and slather both sides with mayo (you can skip this if you're being health conscious but it's really worth the cals), layer on your avocado, tomato, onion and bacon. Top with cheese pocket. Feel joy.
Note: We got this cheese pocket concept from I Am A Food Blog, and despite my love of runny eggs, it's truly supreme to any other egg preparation for a sandwich. Check out her pics for a better idea of what it should look like.
