Spicy Herbed Egg, Tomato, and Bacon Biscuit Sandwich

Yum, yum, yum. That’s all I can think while typing this post. We had leftover biscuits and bacon from breakfast recently so I decided to use them to make an egg sandwich for lunch. I sprinkled the egg with some cayenne pepper, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper then added a bit of fresh chives and thyme. I loved the flavor of the herbs on the spicy egg with the salty bacon and the fresh tomato on the soft biscuit. Truly a delicious sandwich for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Spicy Herbed Egg, Tomato, and Bacon Biscuit Sandwich:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
 
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of fresh chives, chopped
  • Pinch of fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 piece of bacon, cooked
  • 3 small slices of tomato (or 1 large slice)
  • 1 biscuit, cooked

Heat the cooking spray in a small skillet over medium heat. Crack the egg into the pan and season with cayenne, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Sprinkle the chopped chives and thyme leaves over the egg. Once the white of the egg is no longer transparent, add the water to the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for about 1 minute or until the yolk is clouded over but still soft. Don’t over cook or the yolk will be hard.

Layer the biscuit with the bacon, egg, and tomato slices. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    Holy cow that egg looks so good in the pan. Egg sammiches are one of my favorites and I don't get to eat them so much anymore because the hubby isn't an egg fan. Boo. I'll be bookmarking this though because he's going to Atlanta next month and it will be EGGFEST 2011 in Cayman :)

    The egg by itself is good enough for a great meal but making it into the sandwich is over the top wonderful!

    I don't know if I ever told you this but, I am a HUGE fan egg sandwiches. Ever since I left New York I have been dying for an egg sandwich from my favorite deli. It just may be possible I have found a replacement. Eggs with tons of black pepper mounded on a biscuit with all those trimming, Oh my goodness!!!

    Thanks for sharing, Pam. I'm so wanting that right now!!!
