The Anytime Sandwich
Everybody has a few particular dishes that they can eat at any given time day or night. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or a midnight snack….it just doesn’t matter what time it is. A breakfast sandwich made with a fried egg, bacon and cheese on a bagel, muffin, croissant, kaiser roll or even white bread if that’s all you have on hand.
The sandwich is easy enough to make and it can be modified to your tastes. Of course I love bacon and will take any opportunity to enjoy it, but a sausage patty (especially chorizo) will find its way onto a sandwich from time to time.
I’ll also admit to using precooked bacon on occasion. I do cook my bacon in the oven which makes the task easier and less messy. It’s also a great way to cook a lot bacon quickly! If you’ve never tried using the oven, just set the temp to 400 degrees and place your bacon on a cookie sheet with a lip and 20 minutes later your bacon is ready.
*Make sure not to use a flat cookie sheet without the lip, the grease will spill into your oven and may cause a fire. Oven grease fires can be put out easily using salt or milk.
I love cooking for other people but when its just me at home, I’m not too picky about what I eat. The Anytime Sandwich is easy to make and oh so delicious.
I guess that’s why it’s my go to breakfast, lunch or dinner when I’m hungry and Lisa’s not around.
Lisa does enjoy a good breakfast sandwich, breakfast being the key word. But for me it will always be an Anytime Sandwich,
So when you’re in the mood for some deliciousness, what ever time of day, try my Anytime Sandwich.
