The 4-Ingredient Wonder Breakfast Sandwich

What can you make with leftover bacon? I understand that you might not have leftover bacon since those delicious strips of bacon disappear quickly…but if ever you find yourself with some left over, try this! Some combinations are so simple, but oh so good.

Recently, I had the chance to use Woods Smoked Meats Country Bacon for one of my very favorite meals (it’s a good “Breakfast-for-Dinner” and “Wrap-It-for-Tomorrow’s-Lunch” option.  Really, I’m not a fancy chef, but with really great bacon, I really scored bacon points with my friends when I made these!

Here’s how to make them:

Image1005Step 1: Assemble ingredients:

  • Eggs,
  • Toasted English muffins (slice if not pre-sliced),
  • Cheese (cheddar, American, Swiss, etc.),
  • and high-quality bacon!


Image1004Step 2: Cook your bacon if you haven’t already! If you’ve never used the bake-in-the-oven method of cooking for bacon, learn more about it here.

Image1009Step 3: Cook the eggs in a griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat.

I like to cook them as a fried egg over-hard, breaking the yolk, and turning them once during cooking (about 2-3 minutes per side); but you could do this any way you prefer. Scrambled eggs also work, but they are a bit messier to eat as they tend to fall out of the sandwich when eating it.

  • Bottom of muffin,
  • One half of a cheese slice,
  • Slice of bacon, broken in two pieces,
  • Cooked egg,
  • 2nd half of cheese slice,
  • Top of muffin



Step 5: Viola! Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner is ready! Need to hold the meal on warm? Put the sandwiches in a baking pan and cover with foil, and put in the oven at 225 degrees Fahrenheit to keep warm.

These are good anytime (wrap in foil and refrigerate leftovers for freezing or taking to school/work lunch the next day!)

Another favorite of mine is an awesome twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. This one’s not just for kids.
