Sunday Brunch with BAE: Bacon Avocado Egg Sandwich

I’m a huge fan of breakfast sandwiches, not that I actually eat them at breakfast. I actually fail at adulting because I don’t do breakfast, except for coffee and sometimes cookies. Usually, I will have something around 10 or 11, or even just start my day with lunch. It’s not that I wake up really late – on the contrary, I get up insanely early (around 6).

I’m not quite sure when I started not eating breakfast on the regular because I have really vivid memories of eating cereal as a kid. It was always Coco Pops. As a teen I’d make myself a slice of dry white toast to eat while walking to school. Somehow breakfast eating fell along the wayside.

But, I’m pretty sure I can get into eating breakfast on the regular, especially if these breakfast sandwiches were on the menu. I mean, you really can’t go wrong with bacon, egg, and avocado on a soft and fluffy brioche bun. The hardest decision you’ll have to make is, do you want your avocados sliced or smashed!

Hope you guys will have an awesome Sunday!

Just do it!!!

makes 1 sandwich

prep time: 2 minutes

cook time: 8 minutes

total time: 10 minutes

  • 2-3 slices thick cut bacon
  • oil, or butter for the pan
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • 1 brioche bun
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced or slightly mashed

Cook the bacon to your liking over medium heat – I like mine extra crispy. Drain on paper towels, wipe down the pan and lightly toast your bun in the slight residual bacon fat.

In a small non stick pan, heat up a touch of butter or oil over medium heat. Lightly beat the eggs with salt and pepper and add to the pan, swirling so the entirety of the pan is covered. If needed, use a rubber spatula to move portions of the cooked egg to the center of the pan, swirling to move uncooked egg to the exposed parts of the pan. When most of the egg is cooked, add a slice of American cheese in the middle and fold into a square.

Scoop up the cheesy egg square and place on the toasted bun, topping with bacon and avocado. If you’re doing slices, you can just place them on top, if you’re going the smashed route, smash them on the top bun. Season with salt and pepper if desired, squish together and enjoy immediately.

Have fun guys!
