Simple Scrambled Breakfast Sandwich

I don’t know about you, but I love breakfast. In fact, if I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day, I would. And I’m not talking about cereal and milk, I like the good stuff.

I’m thinking a hefty plate filled with perfectly crisp bacon, creamy scrambled eggs, light brown toasted toast. My kind of breakfast is messy and delicious and all the flavors combine into a delicious meal.

That is what inspired my Scrambled Breakfast Sandwich. My husband taught me years ago about the Fried Egg Sandwich, which is essentially the same thing, but I wanted to try it with scrambled eggs. I have tried for about a year now to get the scrambled eggs just perfect to where they’re creamy yet crumbly and I think I finally nailed it.

So here it is, my Scrambled Egg Breakfast Sandwhich, and yes I swear it’s simple.

Scrambled Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Serves 2

Ingredients
4 eggs
2 Tablespoons of Milk
1 Tablespoon butter
4 slices of bacon
Mayonnaise to taste
2 slices of Swiss cheese
Tomato (sliced thin)
1/2 Avocado sliced thin
Salt and Pepper

Directions
1. Put the bacon on a broiler pan, and put in cold oven.
2. Set oven to 350 and start timer for 20 minutes. (I swear this is the easiest way to cook bacon. It always turns out really nice, and the broiler pan catches all the grease so it’s easy clean up. Plus you don’t have to babysit the bacon, so you can do other things, like scramble eggs.)
3. Break the eggs into a bowl.

4. Add the milk (note I am NOT adding salt and pepper)

5. Whisk briskly until you get bubbles like these:

6. Preheat a low pan and melt butter in the bottom.
7. When the butter is melted and bubbly, pour the egg mixture in the pan.

8. Take a rubber spatula and slowly start moving the egg around. Give it a minute first to let it start coming together and then start moving the spatula. I imagine it like a zamboni on an ice rink, slow and steady until you get all of the bottom cleaned off.

9. Then slowly do the zamboni move again until all the eggs are in one big scramble together. Stop before you think you should. They should be a little runny, but they will come together while they wait in the pan for you.
10. Add some salt and pepper to the top and do one last mix and then pull the pan off of the heat until you’re ready.

11. Slice the tomatoes and avocados and if you want to have some lettuce on it too you can do that too!
12. Whenever the bacon is done, pull it out and let it rest. No need to rush to pull it off of the broiler pan, it will wait for you to be ready.
13. Toast the toast
14. On the toast add some mayo and then a piece of cheese.
15. Then add the eggs. This is perfect because the toast is hot and then with the hot eggs, it melts the cheese to be perfectly warm and melty.

16. Then add the bacon and layer all the veggies on top.

17. Top with the second piece of toast and enjoy!

The sandwich really brings together the creamy eggs, the bold cheese and the perfectly crisp bacon. It doesn’t take long, and your belly and taste buds will thank you for it!

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Oh, I know what you mean about big, all-out breakfasts. I adore hot breakfasts! I think this might be because during the week I have simple cereal or toast at work every day. So every chance I get I like to cook up something breakfasty. This may also explain the number of breakfast recipes I have shared too! I am one of those people that will cook up a big breakfast (with mushrooms and the works) for dinner hehe

    This sandwich is definitely up my alley 🙂
