Now, I realize this isn't exactly a recipe, but I'm posting it because it's something that may not have occurred to some people to do. I was one of those people. I was surfing the web trying to get some new breakfast and lunch recipes when I happened upon this. I just about smacked myself right in the forehead and yelled 'Of COURSE!!"
I love BLTs...I LOVE eggs. Why in the world did pairing the two together not dawn on me sooner?! So easy, yet I just never thought of it. So that's why I'm sharing such a simple 'recipe' today. To bring awareness to others that this can be done.
For those of you who already knew of this, and have been doing it for years and are laughing at my ignorance...hush. For those of you who are right now smacking your hand to your forehead...you're welcome ;)~
'Fried Egg BLT'
Source (the site that gave me the idea, though I didn't use their recipe): Food and Wine
2-3 bacon slices (I bought the pre-cooked)
1 tomato; sliced
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
Bread of choice; toasted
Slice of cheese (optional)
1. In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat, turning, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. (Skip this step if using pre-cooked bacon)
2. Spread the mayonnaise on both slices of toast, then top with lettuce, bacon, tomato and cheese (if using).
3. In a small skillet sprayed with cooking spray, add the egg and fry over medium heat, turning once, until crisp around the edge, about 4 minutes; the yolk should still be runny. Slide the egg onto the sandwich, and top with remaining bread slice.
