Toasted Egg, Cheese & Bacon Sandwich

Comfort food…it comes in many forms, & more often than not, it’s very simple but delicious.  One of my favorites is just a fried egg sandwich on soft buttered bread.  For this version, I was looking for something a little more substantial to serve with soup for dinner.  So while this isn’t really a recipe, I hope it’s a quick idea that you will enjoy as much as we did.

Ingredients:

eggs

butter, softened

bacon lardons (fried bacon pieces), drained

shredded cheese of your choice

1 loaf of French bread, thickly sliced

Directions:

Scramble one egg at a time, season with salt & pepper.  Add the egg to a small omelette or crepe pan which has been lightly sprayed.  Swirl the egg around the hot pan, so that it forms a thin egg layer.  Cook, turn, & cook the other side, then remove to a plate.  Continue this process until you have the desired number of cooked eggs, one per toast.

Butter the desired number of bread slices, place them on a cookie sheet, & bake in a hot oven until lightly toasted on top.  Arrange an egg on each slice of toast, folding so they fit, & sprinkle with cheese, then top each with the bacon lardons.  Place the open faced sandwiches back in the oven, and bake for a few minutes until the cheese has melted. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes:

Buttered & toasted French bread is just the right touch & texture (with that toasted crunch) for this simple little sandwich.   Serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a simple dinner.  Enjoy!
