I haven’t done many breakfast things (or meats, but that’s coming too!), so I thought today’s post would be about the incredible edible egg.
I am fortunate enough to have a great guy who wakes up with me and cooks us breakfast most mornings (sometimes, it just isn’t gonna happen, but most). When we weren’t Paleo, he had this sandwich that he REALLY loved. So when we converted (hehe sounds like a religion…wait, it kind of is!), I took his idea and subtracted the bread. Its warm and the flavors really work well together.
Paleo BLT Sandwich with Egg and Mayo
1-2 strips of Bacon (you can use Turkey Bacon too)
1 tsp Paleo Mayo
1 leaf Lettuce
2 slices Tomato (we use Beefsteak…mmmmm)
Sea Salt and Pepper
*Optional – diced Avocado
*Optional – diced Red Onion
I like to use a little egg pan that was actually Angel’s idea to buy…I thought it was so stupid when he wanted to get those things, but now I’m addicted! Funny how life works, I eat my words often.
So we spray the pan with some grapeseed or coconut oil and plop one egg down with salt and pepper. While that cooks (and you can cook it whichever style you like…try our recipe for Sunny Side Up Eggs), take another pan and slap a slice of bacon in it…or try our Oven Baked Bacon – keeps them flat and drains the fat! …Anyways, in a pan, they’ll take about the same amount of time to cook, depending on how crispy you like your bacon (for this, I like mine with a little crunch!).
So, we’re cooking the egg and bacon, now’s a good time to cut the tomatoes, lettuce, and avocado (if you want avocado). The egg should have no transparency at this point…we’re ready to rock and roll.
I spread a little mayo on my biscuit or bread, then lettuce, then bacon, then tomatoes, then egg – that way (if you cook Sunny Side Up Eggs), when you break the egg, it runs down the whoooole thing. Or however…as you can see from the image, I wasn’t thinking of the order ;)
Avocados on the side or on the sandwich and serve with a sparkling glass of OJ.
