Hubby always wants an egg sandwich and I get frustrated over just eggs and mustard, so boring! So today, he asked for them and I decided to jazz it up a little...guess I did well because he ate it & said "MMMMMMM, this is really good"... So while it's not a gourmet offering, it's easy, quick & pretty darn tasty!

How To Make dressed up egg & bacon sandwich

  • 1
    Put eggs in bowl or glass measuring cup with seasonings. Whisk until well blended. Set aside.
  • 2
    Chop bacon & fry until crisp. Drain off all the fat except for about 1 Tbsp. Spread bacon pieces out so they are all around the skillet.
  • 3
    Pour eggs over bacon slowly so it doesn’t clump up. Fry until bottom is set, occasionally tilting skillet & using spatula to let the uncooked portion run underneath and get cooked. VERY CAREFULLY, use spatula to flip the entire mixture over (I had to cut mixture in half to flip). Fry a little longer until that side is done.
  • Drizzle mustard on all four slices of bread, then top with tomato slices and cheese...
    Spread or drizzle some mustard on all four slices (how my hubby likes it), and then arrange the tomato slices to fit bread. Arrange ½ of the cheese over each sandwich.
  • Slice your tomato into four slices
    Slice tomato into 4 slices, and then cut each slice in half again. Slice cheese with mandolin (be careful)*.
  • When cooked, cut each half of the egg mixture in half, then arrange on top of cheese.
    When eggs are cooked, cut the halves in half & place over cheese.
  • It's ready for that first bite...I like to cut in half diagonally, but it's really your preference if you want to leave it whole.
    Top with other slice of bread and enjoy. I cut the sandwich half diagonally, but you can leave it uncut.
  • This is a 1-1/4 lb piece of Swiss cheese we got for Christmas...it's sooooo good!
    *NOTE: You can use pre sliced cheese if you wish and if you don’t want Swiss, you can use a different variety.
