The B.E.S.T Sandwich

Do you ever have a day(s) where making dinner is the LAST thing you want to do after getting home? I know I do. Sometimes it’s because work is hectic, sometimes I’m just lazy. Either way, I still have to eat. If I have granola on hand, it’s a bowl of granola and milk with some fruit. When I don’t, I make my version of a BLT. It’s an open face (as in one slice of bread) B.E.S.T sandwich. Bacon, egg, spinach, tomatoes…all things I eat frequently enough that I usually have some on hand. It’s simple, filling, and the fried egg on top, a little weekday indulgence.

B.E.S.T Sandwich

B.E.S.T Sandwich

1 slice of wheat bread
1 egg
1 handful of spinach, washed and dried
2 slices of bacon, cut in half
½ tomato, thinly sliced
¼ tsp salt (optional)
1/3 tsp pepper (optional)
  1.  Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat. When the pan is ready, add bacon. Flip bacon after about 3 minutes and cook until bacon has reached desired level of doneness. Place bacon slices on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  2. Turn heat down to medium and using the pan with the bacon drippings, crack an egg into the pan.
  3. Toast bread
  4. When fried egg has reached desired level of doneness, it’s time to assemble.
  5. On top of bread, place spinach, bacon, tomatoes and top with egg
* S.E.S.T - Substitute bacon with a slice of Spam
* B.E.L.T - Substitute spinach with lettuce 

* B.E.A.T - Substitute spinach with avocado, scramble instead of fry the egg for a great breakfast sandwich
* Add a slice of your favorite cheese such as Havarti, Swiss or American
