This ultimate breakfast sandwich is packed full of egg, cheese, bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato. Say hello to breakfast!

Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich by Nutmeg Nanny

Sometimes I like to shock my husband with the enormous sandwiches I can make.  He made a comment one afternoon that my idea of making BLT’s wouldn’t fill him up. So since we hadn’t eaten breakfast {I’m a horrible wife who often just skips making breakfast until both of us are hangry for lunch} I decided I would combine the two.

I got into the kitchen and I made these HUGE ultimate sandwich just to prove to him that a BLT could in fact fill a person up. Let’s just forget about the fact that I also added cheese, double egg and avocado. Plus I used tons of Jones Day Farm bacon because I feel like if you are going to put bacon on a sandwich you may as well do it right.

There is seriously nothing more than annoys me than a sandwich that is topped with minimal bacon. Get it right or pay the price.

Am I right?

The other thing I loved about this sandwich was that it totally kept me full for hours. I made it all the way till dinner before I thought I needed to eat again or I would die.

Ok, that’s a tad dramatic but I can seriously go from “no I’m not hungry” to “OMG give me food now I’m feeling stabby!” I should probably work on that.

    This sounds awesome! I’m so lazy about making breakfast on the weekends, too. I’d rather have a gigantic lunch!

    Move over oatmeal that I once loved. There’s a new breakfast kid in town and his name is GET IN MY MOUFFFF. Pinned!

    I make something very similar to this sandwich! I don’t use the inside piece of toast though. Looks good and tastes amazing!

    I think the adjective ‘ultimate’ was the appropriate one to use. OMG! works too. This looks more like summer dinner for two or three even.

    This is right up my alley! Also I love it that you use Jones Dairy Farm products. I’ve been hooked on them since the 1970s when they were one of my clients. I sold my business but never stopped buying Jones. The braunschweiger is the best too.. I once made a pate terrine using 3 rolls of it plus just a touch of mayo and some sherry and thyme for a last minute dish to take to a party. There wasn’t any left at the end of the party when I went to get the dish – it looked like someone had licked it clean.

    The.boy is often majorly concerned about whether or not the things I make will fill him up. Silly boy. 😛 This is quite a mouthful of a sandwich!
