Breakfast Sandwiches: Homemade Crowd Pleasers

Breakfast Sandwiches

You may be familiar with the breakfast sandwiches offered at your local fast food joint, but nothing beats a home-cooked meal. The recipe below is for a delicious bacon/sausage, egg, and cheddar cheese breakfast sandwich that everyone can enjoy. I make my breakfast sandwiches using everything bagels but feel free to substitute these for plain bagels, croissants, English muffins, Texas toast, or any type of bread you prefer.


Bacon/ Sausage, Egg and Cheese

What you will need (makes 4 sandwiches):

1 lb. bacon or sausage (links or patties)                4 Extra-large eggs

4 slices Cheddar Cheese.                                          4 Everything Bagels

1 large frying pan                                                     1 Grill weight (optional)

2 teaspoons vegetable oil                                        1 Spatula

Salt                                                                              black pepper



  1. Set frying pan on stovetop over medium heat.
  2. When hot, put 8 strips of bacon/ 4 sausage patties/ 8 sausage links in pan.
  3. If cooking bacon or sausage, I recommend allowing the meat to cook at least 4 minutes on each side. However if you like your meat more cooked, adjust the timing accordingly.
  4. Once cooked, remove bacon/sausage from frying pan.
  5. Next, slice bagels into 2 halves (tops & bottoms). Place 4 halves (2 tops & 2 bottoms) in frying pan, allowing bread to absorb some of the leftover bacon/sausage grease. If you have a grill weight, place weight on two of the bagel tops. Wait 25 seconds and place weight on remaining two bagels. Wait another 25 seconds and remove all bagel halves from frying pan.
  6. If you do not have a grill weight, use a spatula to press down on the bagel halves individually. When they are golden brown, remove from frying pan.
  7. Repeat steps 5 & 6 for remaining bagel halves.
  8. Once all bagel halves are removed, put 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in frying pan.
  9. Crack a total of 4 eggs in frying pan. Once the egg white turns a solid white color, use spatula to flip eggs. Cook to desired consistency, I prefer mine over-medium.
  10. Remove eggs from pan placing them 4 bagel half bottoms. Immediately place 1 slice of cheddar cheese on top of egg. Sprinkle salt and pepper as desired over egg and cheese. Then, place 2 pieces of bacon/1 sausage patty/2 sausage links on top of the cheddar cheese.
  11. Cover with bagel half top.
  12. Let cool 45 seconds before serving. Enjoy!


While this recipe is strictly meat, eggs, cheese, and bread, feel free to add your favorite vegetables to suit your palate. I recommend using spinach (either raw or cooked), tomatoes (raw or cooked), avocado, and onions. Feel free to experiment with different vegetables to find a unique breakfast sandwich that you love.
