BLT Breakfast Sandwich (BLeaT)
For simplicity's sake, the recipe below is written with the ingredients to make one BLT breakfast sandwich. You will likely have leftovers, for instance if you cook up several slices of bacon at once (I've never just cooked one!). This recipe is easy to double, triple, etc.
Prep Time 14 minutes
Cook Time 19 minutes
Total Time 33 minutes
Servings 1 sandwich
- 1 slice bacon
- 1 bagel thin (or preferred bread)
- 1 tomato slice
- 1 large lettuce leaf
- 1 egg over easy
- One-quarter of an avocado sliced thin
Cook bacon however you like, but I like to bake mine. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place bacon strips on prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until bacon has reached your desired crispness. Remove cooked bacon from sheet, blot with a paper towel, and set aside.
Toast your bagel thin (or bread). Place lettuce and tomato slice onto bottom half of bagel thin.
Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat. Crack egg into the skillet and raise heat to medium-high. Let egg cook until the whites have solidified and become white/opaque. Carefully place a spatula underneath the egg about halfway under the egg and gently flip the egg over to the other side, trying not to disturb the yolk. Let cook for another 30 or so seconds. Remove the egg and place it on top of the tomato on the breakfast sandwich.
Take one piece of bacon and cut it in half, and then place bacon on top of egg. Add avocado slices and top with the remaining half of the bagel thin. Serve while warm.
Prepare bacon however you like. This sandwich uses one piece of bacon per sandwich, so it probably makes more sense to cook more than one slice at a time. As a bonus this recipe is even easier if you have leftover bacon!
To reduce the potential of having your sandwich ingredients spill all out the sides if you want to cut this BLT breakfast sandwich in half, I suggest removing the top bagel thin/bread and cutting from the avocado layer downward. Then cut the top bagel thin in half separately and place it back on.
The cook time for this recipe factors in 15 minutes to cook bacon in the oven - may vary if you use the stovetop or if you use leftover, already cooked bacon.
