Fried Egg Sandwich Deluxe with Bacon on Pesto Pine Nut Bread

by Michelle on March 12, 2010

This week for HBinFive we made Pesto Pine Nut Bread and I made two baguettes and 6 hamburger buns. The Pesto Pine Nut Bread not only tasted wonderful but the aroma while it was baking was fabulous!

Originally I thought I would make meatballs for a delicious meatball sandwich. So I made the meatballs and my special Red Sauce. Although the meatball sandwich was wonderful, my photos were horrible and very out of focus. Yes, I had my camera on the wrong setting! And by the time I discovered my photos were not the best, the meatballs were long gone. On to plan “B”….

Then I remembered a dip that I had been meaning to try and I could serve it with Pesto Bread Crostini. So I sliced up the baguettes into thin 1/4” slices to make some crostini. But once the bread was toasted, I really was not in the mood for a cheesy, rich dip. Scratch the dip….

Finally, I just decided to make a Fried Egg Sandwich Deluxe with Bacon and it was delicious!

Fried Egg Sandwich Deluxe

1 egg
Butter
Lettuce
2-3 slices of fresh tomato
3-4 pieces of fried bacon
Salt and Pepper
2 slices of bread or a bun

1. In a skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towels.

2. Put the slices of bread or the bun in the toaster to lightly toast. When the bread is toasted spread the mayonnaise on one slice of bread or the bun, then top with the bacon, tomato and lettuce.

3. At the same time as you put the bread in the toaster, in a nonstick skillet over medium heat melt the butter. Carefully add the egg and fry for 45 seconds and then flip it over to fry the opposite side, careful to not break the yolk. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Slide the egg onto the sandwich.

    I love the good old trusted, time tested, been around forever kinds of food…could live on it! Like in Heidi…the sweet milk, bread and cheese. Looks very good! Come say hi 😀

  • Thuy March 12, 2010 at 6:39 am

    Gosh…That looks delicious!

  • Allie and Pattie March 12, 2010 at 8:56 am

    Your pictures can elevate even a fried egg sandwich (which I LOVE anyway!)

    It’s 7:30 am and time for breakfast. This would be just perfect. Please email me a sandwich would you?

    This is to die for.

    Yum!

    Hubs and I love fried egg sandwiches! Thanks for coming by! The large loaf of whole wheat sandwich bread did look awesome but after cutting it further into the loaf the center was not quite done. I added 5 minutes to the baking but that was not enough. That has always been one of my problems when baking bread. Is there a test to know if your bread is done? What was done was very good.

  • Brenda March 12, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    Oh me again, I forgot to ask what area did you live in Michigan?

  • The Muse March 12, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    i would have asked that question sooner, but i had to wait to get the computer…

    beloved was busy reading your blog!

  • Michelle March 12, 2010 at 3:03 pm

  • kat March 12, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    That is one heck of a good looking sandwich!

  • The Muse March 12, 2010 at 3:30 pm

  • Cookin' Canuck March 12, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Oh wow! This is my kind of breakfast sandwich and that bread sounds fantastic!

  • Rambling Tart March 12, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Oh Michelle, you make me laugh. :-) You sound as frazzled as I get somedays, adjusting like mad to my altering food moods. :-) This sandwich is beautiful and chock full of the yummiest things. :-)

  • Danielle March 12, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    oooh…look at the awesome runny yolk!! I haven’t had breakfast and man I sure would enjoy this sandwich!
    I’m making my pesto bread this weekend…I can’t wait!!

  • mrs. c March 12, 2010 at 6:12 pm

    Yummy! How do I get started on your bread? Problem is that since hubby is gluten -free and I am the only one who will get to eat it…can I just make a loaf a week? or can I make rolls or other yummies that I can bake and give away. Would love to try this bread but I don’t need to eat it all myself!

  • The Quintessential Magpie March 12, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Michelle, where on earth did you find that pesto pinenut bread??? That sounds great with anything on top of it, but this looks SO good.

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  • Pam March 12, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    I can only see one picture here at work for some reason. It’s probably a good thing because I just have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch and the runny yolk picture would probably make me cry.

  • Cathy (breadexperience) March 12, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    That is a beautiful sandwich! Great idea for using this bread dough.

  • SavoringTime in the Kitchen March 12, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    I often make fried egg sandwiches for dinner when I’ve had a busy day. We love them! I’ve never tried a ‘deluxe’ version – yet 😉 It looks so good on that beautiful roll!

  • Connie~ March 12, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Oh man, that looks so GOOD!

  • Rachael March 12, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    I seriously think that a fried egg makes almost anything yummier! Hey, you could call this a BELT! (Bacon, Egg, Lettuce, & Tomato)

  • Velva March 13, 2010 at 12:28 am

    Proof that simple is best. Love the fried egg sandwich deluxe.

  • Kim March 13, 2010 at 1:35 am

    The egg sandwich looks awesome and the bacon is cooked perfectly! I bet the pesto pine nut bread was delicious.

    I lost my link to our bread baking schedule when my computer crashed. I’m heading back to your home page to see if I can find it on your site.

  • Lori E March 13, 2010 at 3:03 am

    Yum. It is nice to see someone who isn’t afraid of a little pepper. Sometimes I think I am the only one who uses enough.

  • Sook March 13, 2010 at 5:17 am

    This would be excellent for brunch on weekends. :)

  • Heather B March 13, 2010 at 6:04 am

    yum…fried egg on just about anything is delicious in my mind.

  • Elwood March 13, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    Your pictures and food always look so delicious, and you always come up with such great ideas. Tasty!

  • Joanne March 13, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    I love the sound of an egg/pesto flavor combo! And the meatball sandwich idea. For a while I was thinking of making chicken parm sandwiches to go with this bread.

    Your rolls look so perfect! How do you shape them so well?

  • Cheryl B. March 13, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    Brian LOVES fried egg sandwiches. Toast, Miracle Whip, Bacon (or Ham), swiss cheese, slice of tomatoe, lettuce, and a fried egg WITH the yolk broken. The last part is his orders, “otherwise I just end up wearing the darn thing! grumble, grumble!”

    I agree with Lori E. that pepper seems to be becoming an extent spice/seasoning. Yes, “too much” of it can be overwhelming … then again, so can “too much” of any seasoning or spice.

    I also agree with “The Muse” about absolutely loving your range!!!

    I laughed at the part of not remembering that you wanted to take pictures of the meatballs till they were all gone. Oh can I relate!! And then I agreed with ‘Rambling Tart’ about varying food moods … “What do I want? Food! What food? Um mmm ….”

  • Jamie March 13, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Wow! I could go for anyone of those combos! Extraordinary! And that sandwich is gorgeous! And such perfect bread, not sure mine would look half that perfect!

  • biz319 March 14, 2010 at 1:30 am

    Egg sammie!! A gal after my own heart – probably my favorite thing to make for breakfast after my breakfast pizza! 😀

  • Chow and Chatter March 14, 2010 at 12:45 pm

    oh wow what a great sandwich

  • Barbara Bakes March 14, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    I haven’t had a good fried egg sandwich for a long while. And I’ve never had a super deluxe yummy one like this!
