Bacon Wrapped Egg Sandwiches

Photobucket


It's the weekend and you know what that means! Time to make that special breakfast for the family. This sandwich would be perfect for breakfast, lunch and even dinner; which was the case, when the kids were away. Having to cook for one can get a bit boring. I mean, it's a bit depressing to eat alone, isn't it. Well, when the kids were away, a few weeks back, I took that time to get creative in the kitchen. Having seen this recipe in an issue of Rachael Ray's Magazine, I knew it would be the perfect one person meal.

I was super intrigued by the wrapping of the bacon, around the sandwich. Could it really be done? Yes it can. Being a bacon fan, I used twice the amount of bacon. If you're going to wrap something in bacon, then wrap it in BACON, LOL. I also jazzed up my eggs a bit with some fresh chives and topped them with some Jack cheese. The sandwich was a combination of salty, crunchy outside and a soft savory inside. Pretty darn tasty. I think I may toast the inside of the bread, next time, since I found it did get a tad soggy. When Hubby found out I made these without him, he pouted a while. Until I promised to make them again, for him too, LOL.

This is such a fun recipe. I love the idea of filling the sandwich with scrambled egg, but I also love the idea of filling the sandwich with all sorts of other things too. Looks awesome!

Cindy, this is so weird, last night I made bacon-wrapped chipotle burgers from Rachael, lol! The burgers were cooked with the bacon wrapped around them. I missed these in that issue, I'm bookmarking this. I would actually love one of these sandwiches for supper one night. Thanks!
