Breakfast.

While at the beach, I think the majority of my family became obsessed with breakfast sandwiches. On top of our daily ice cream cone after a big bike ride, many ended up getting the most amazing breakfast sandwiches from a little spot on the boardwalk. They were the best thing ever.

I seriouslycouldn’twait to come home and make fun breakfast sandwiches. One of the favorite combos was eggs grilled with peppers and spinach, topped with cheese and paired with sausage or bacon on an everything bagel. I looooove everything bagels. I want to marry them.

Since I’m still battling Sinus Infection 2011 that has stripped me of 3 of the 5 senses, I made this kinda-boring-but-still-delicious breakfast sandwich for my husband this morning. I can’t wait until I can taste things again and make my ideal breakfast sandwich: grilled eggs with caramelized onions and mushrooms, maybe even some spinach, and gouda or gruyere on an everything bagel. WANT.

What’s your ideal breakfast sandwich?

    As long as the breakfast sandwich has bacon in it, I’m game. It can be on a bagel, english muffin or burrito, but it MUST have bacon :)

    I like waffle sandwiches. You get the crunchy outside, doughy inside and you can fill it with sweet, savory or both! Feel better. I’m still trying to get over whatever funk I’ve contracted for the past two weeks! It sucks!

      I almost put this on 2 waffles for him instead of the English muffin! I’m gonna do that next time. I hope you feel better too – I know you’ve had such a rough week.

    It’s all about the buttermilk biscuits! If you have a big, buttery, fluffy biscuit with that slightly salty crust on top, all you need are eggs and sharp cheddar cheese. I’ll admit I always put Morningstar farms veggie sausage on them (I’m sorry!!)…but I assume normal person sausage or bacon is just as fab.

      Why did I not even think about biscuits?! I am a biscuit freak. I think I love them more than bagels. And that’s saying a lot because I don’t even love bread!

    i’m a long island, new york [go gay marriage!!] girl and let me tell you – if you are looking for a world class egg sandwich, long island is it. we do it on poppy seed rolls. mmhmm. 1 egg scrambled, bacon and cheese on a buttered roll with light ketchup – completely classic and very hard to screw up.

    but! i was down south last summer [on tour with a friends band] and we were in… iowa maybe? or missouri? somewhere smack in the middle of the country and somewhere that didnt understand my request of .. a roll. a poppy seed roll. a soft on the inside, crispy and crunchy on the outside poppy seed roll. we were at a rest stop/diner/cracker barrel/somewhere that doesnt exist in new york. it was about 6am and we had been driving from kansas city, mo to nashville, tn. the waitress was sweet, but looked at me like i was crazy when i requested a roll..
    “a dinner roll?” she asked.
    “no, a poppy seed roll. like you get a lunch sandwich on,” i replied.
    “a hoagie roll?”
    “no, a poppy seed roll,” i said desperately. she had to understand what i meant. i needed my 1EBCK on a buttered roll. i have been in a van for 10 hours with 3 boys who have an affinity for ace of base. i.need.it.
    “i’m sorry little lady, but i just dont seem to know what youre talking about. how about a biscuit?”
    “its.. its ok.. a biscuit is fine,” i said defeated.
    well let me tell you! gosh darn, was it delicious. and different! the way the grease gets absorbed by the biscuit. mmhmm. that was the best meal i ate on that trip. [besides the thai food in kansas city.. but thats a whole other story.]
    good job, middle america! i’m proud of you!

    I love making omeletes with maple sausage, onions, red peppers, and cheddar – throw that on some bread and you’d be good to go!

    I also make this sandwich all the time, and I have yet to decide if it’s a breakfast or a lunch sandwich. Toast wheat bread and spread with a tasty mustard of your choice and guacamole (or just sliced avocado). Layer ham and cheese (again, your choice) and top with a sunny side up egg. It’s incredibly messy in the best way – just don’t wear a nice shirt while you eat it.

    Egg, either scrambled or over easy, salsa, veggie sausage patty, little bit of shredded cheddar-jack cheese on a whole wheat english muffin! (big protein sandwich!)

    My new-let’s-mix-it-up is English Muffin (whole wheat!) with a light spread of raspberry jam, havarti cheese and egg… it sounds bizzare but absolutely delish!

    The one that you made is our typical fare, but with the addition of tomato. Now I’m going to have to add some sauteed spinach to it. Thanks for the idea!

    Although eggs are not a huge part of Indian breakfast, I looooove ‘em. I have an egg almost daily ‘cos me needs protein but my in laws never really make them, save for a quick dinner with egg curry or something. My husband doesn’t like cheese :( but again, I looove it! My favorite breakfast is a fried egg, sunny side up with toasted whole grain bread slathered with low fat cheese spread.

    I’ve pretty much had a sinus infection for about 2-3 weeks. It gets better, gets worse.

    It’s a cold that lingered and we all pass it back and forth, preschool germs, and the cycle goes on and on.

    I feel your pain. In the sinuses. Literally.
