The Perfect Breakfast Sandwich

  1. Begin with a nice brioche or milk bun.

  2. Once you have your bread, begin by thinly slicing your onions. Add your onions to a medium saucepan with melted butter, salt, and a pinch of sugar. Cover the saucepan and cook on medium-low heat stirring occasionally until they get darker and darker. After about 45 minutes, the onions should be deeply caramelized.

  3. For your bacon, line a baking sheet with bacon, place in a cold oven and raise temperature to 425ºF. Cook the bacon to your desired crispness.

  4. Optionally, you can make a spicy mayo mixing mayonnaise with sriracha, Worcestershire sauce, salt to taste, and fresh garlic.

  5. To make the soft scrambled eggs, fill up a small saucepan with about an inch of water. Bring the water up to a light simmer and place a large bowl on top of it. The bowl should not touch the simmering water. Add to the bowl your eggs and cold butter. Constantly whisk the eggs as it gently cooks and curd until it comes together until it results in a very fine curd soft scrambled egg. Take the bowl immediately off the heat and add a little more cold butter, creme fraiche, and freshly diced chives. Finish with some salt.

  6. To assemble, toast your buns in butter until golden brown on each cut side. Start with a layer of your spicy mayo, caramelized onions, two slices of bacon, and a generous dollop of your scrambled eggs. Top with a slice of cheese of your choice and crown the sandwich.

  7. To make a more easy breakfast sandwich, start with any typical store-bought bread.

  8. In a medium-sized bowl, season your eggs and whisk your eggs until combined. In a medium nonstick skillet, toss in some butter. Once it’s melted add in your eggs and two slices of bread. Coat both sides of the bread in the egg mixture, and on medium heat, let that sit for about 1-3 minutes or until that egg is cooked nearly all the way through.

  9. Flip the eggs and bread, add some cheese and meat of your choice to each slide of bread, and fold in the sides of your egg. Once the egg has been folded over the bread slices, combine the two slices of bread and your sandwich will be complete. Enjoy!


No-Effort Breakfast Sandwich Method:

  1. In a medium bowl, crack in the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Whisk together.

  2. Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add in butter, and cook until melted and bubbling.

  3. Add in the eggs, and add 2 slices of bread soaking one side then flip, and soak the other side then let it sit on medium heat for 1-3 minutes.

  4. Carefully flip the bread and eggs mass over (bread should stick to the egg), add in cheese, and 3-4 slices of seared ham.

  5. Fold the right side of the egg over, followed by the left side, and then fold the sandwich completely over.

  6. Remove from the pan, and let cool for a few seconds before slicing and serving.
