Fried Egg BLT is my new favorite thing to eat, and it’s usually my breakfast whenever there’s leftover bacon in the fridge. It’s also the perfect breakfast for those mornings when you’re ravenous.
It’s definitely the perfect breakfast for those mornings when you’re ravenous.
I’ve been on the fried egg train for a long time, and it doesn’t appear as though I’ll be hopping off anytime soon.
I’ve actually always been on it, but just haven’t put too much thought into it other than putting breakfast together on weekend mornings. And, yes, that’s arugula. I don’t mind regular lettuce, but arugula is so pretty.
I know this sandwich isn’t rocket science, but it’s one of those things that’s so damn good, soul warming and belly filling that I had to share.
Fried Egg BLT – It’s All About the Egg
You have to fry your egg the right way.
I’ve messed up fried eggs for years, but I now have my shit together.
Here’s the secret – cook on medium-low with a little canola oil and when the white looks about halfway done pour a little water in the pan and cover.
Let the steam cook it, but don’t walk away from it. Give it about 1-2 minutes, and it will turn out perfect.
My husband, on the other hand, wants to fry his eggs on high heat every single time. He’s convinced that everything needs to be cooked on the highest temperature possible.
I really don’t understand why he does that unless it has to do with the fact that he’s impatient as hell, or he thinks all food has some underlying crazy ass disease that needs to be annihilated by being burned to death.
It’s just so not necessary. This is officially my new favorite breakfast. Bacon, arugula, tomato, mayo and a fried egg on fresh white bread. Don’t even try to use fat free or low fat mayo. Just don’t. And don’t use Miracle Whip, either.
That shit sucks.
