Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

Hubby and I are avid movie watchers. After going to see Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey ( and sadly, that was the last movie we had seen in theaters since the big virus hit) I had been craving that beautiful breakfast sandwich. If you’ve seen the movie you know what I’m talking about (or rather writing about)…Sal’s bacon, egg and cheese sandwich that Harley loved so much. So, I decided to make my own.

I was debating about whether or not I should post this, because the final picture does not really do the sandwich justice. I can assure you that it tastes heavenly. The crispy, salty bacon with the over easy egg, topped with all that melty cheese and a touch of hot sauce is so satisfying on every level.

The original recipe called for ciabatta bread, but when I decided to make this, the world went crazy and I was lucky enough to find hamburger buns….literally, that was all that was on the bread shelves. So if you want to try it out yourself, here’s what you need:

*ciabatta bread or really right now any kind of bread you can find

*butter

*eggs

*salt and pepper to taste

*bacon

*american sliced cheese

*hot sauce

*Dijon mustard ; this was another ingredient that is not called for the original sandwich, but I like Dijon on my eggs sandwiches.

For the bacon, if I’m cooking several slices of bacon, I like to cook it in the oven. It’s easier and it frees up stove top space. You can fry it in a skillet if desired.

Preheat oven to 425°

Cover a large baking sheet with foil (this I find makes for easier clean up). Place a cooling wrack on top of the the baking sheet and spray with no stick spray. Place bacon on to wrack.

I used 2 pieces of bacon for each sandwich, but you can use more if you like.

Cook bacon until crispy, about 15 to 20 minutes; set aside.

Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium high heat.

Spread butter on the bread.

Place the bread, butter side down on the griddle to toast.

Once the bread gets to how well you prefer it toasted, set aside.

Add a little butter to the griddle. After it melts, crack the eggs, making sure to space them apart.

salt and pepper to taste.

Cook until the whites begin to set. Here comes the fun part….fun as in trying to flip these babies over with out breaking the yolks…. carefully flip the eggs. Place one or two slices of cheese on top of each egg.





Add bacon onto the cheese.

Cook for a minute or 2 more or until cheese starts to melt.

Place bread on serving plates. Place egg onto bottom half of the bread. Add a few dashes of hot sauce……

I like Dijon mustard on my egg sandwiches, so I added some of that as well.

Place top half of the bread onto the bacon and egg and enjoy. Just a friendly warning, this does get messy, but a good kind of messy with the yolk bathing the bacon in savory goodness.
