The Breakfast for Dinner Sandwich

Since I've been on a break from good old college classes, I've been discovering that I have all sorts of time for things I never used to get to do. Like cleaning my baseboards. Or organizing my fridge. Or taking naps.

Ah, naps.

Often in the afternoon while my daughter has her "quiet playing time" in her room, I turn on Food Network (you know you're a mom when you need the sound of people nearby to fall asleep) and curl up on the couch and allow myself to take a 20 minute nap. The other day, I woke up to find Paula Deen's show on and the woman was making a myriad of breakfast foods; one of which was this lovely egg, bacon and avocado sandwich.

I immediately wanted one right then and there.

So I made some for dinner last night! I made a few small changes to suit my family's tastes a bit better. And y'all, these were so darn yummy. I put two eggs on my husband's sandwich but just one on mine because if there's one thing I learned from growing up with 7 brothers - it's that men don't like skinny sandwiches. Makes 'em cranky. So anyhow, that's why there's a range of how many eggs you'll need in the recipe below.

Egg, Bacon, Tomato and Guacamole Sandwich
Serves 4

8 slices of bread (I used regular whole wheat bread)
4-8 eggs
2 tbsp. butter
12 slices of bacon
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 cup guacamole
salt and pepper

Toast the bread. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add in the bacon. Cook the bacon until you're desired level of doneness, flipping halfway through. Remove from the skillet once they're crispy.

If you're using turkey bacon like me, add in butter (otherwise, just use the bacon grease). Once the butter melts, crack in the eggs. With a fork or knife or spatula or whatever you've got nearby, poke the yolks of the eggs so they break. Season the eggs with salt and pepper. Cook the eggs for about two minutes. flip and cook for another two minutes.

Lather guacamole onto one piece of your toast, pile on the eggs, bacon and tomato. Season with a bit of salt and pepper and place the second piece of toast on top. Repeat for the other three sandwiches.

  1. Bacon and avocado - can't go wrong! My husband loves breakfast for dinner, so this will be great to try.


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
