In the fast-paced world that we live in today, it can be difficult to find time to cook and eat a hearty breakfast. Roll out this English Breakfast Sandwich which combines the old with the new. In the process, it gives a whole new meaning to fast food. Simply prepare most of it in advance then the actual sandwich is very quick to prepare. It can then be eaten on the go.
The major assumption with this recipe is that the main ingredients have been cooked in advance. That only leaves the sandwich to be assembled and that is what makes it fast food. Check out an English Breakfast Sandwich when you want a meal in a hurry
- 2 slices White or Wholemeal bread, buttered
- 1 Hard-boiled Egg
- 1 large Grilled Sausage
- 2 or 3 rashers of Grilled Bacon
- Brown Sauce or Tomato Ketchup
- (Optional) 1 Tomato thinly sliced
- Butter, Olive Spread or Margarine
- Salt and Pepper
- Butter the bread.
- Slice the sausage at a 45° angle to create thin slices.
- Layer the sausage onto the buttered side of one of the slices of bread. Top with either brown sauce or tomato ketchup according to preference. (see note)
- Place the bacon rashers over next. 2 may be sufficient to cover or it may take 3.
- If using the tomato then layer over the sausage. (see note)
- Thinly slice the eggs then add on to the top, Add a little salt and pepper.
- Place the second slice of bread over and cut in half. I prefer to cut as rectangles but many prefer to cut as triangles.
- If eating at home then serve on a plate. To eat on the go then wrap in kitchen paper and put into a rigid container. That container will serve as a plate when the food is being eaten so preventing scraps from getting everywhere.
Cook the eggs, sausages and bacon the previous night. Allow to cool then they are ready to make into an English Breakfast Sandwich. Prepare as something that can be grabbed on the way out the following morning or leave to be made up freshly.
Tomatoes or the sauces are best avoided if the sandwich is made much in advance of eating as both tend to make the bread soggy.
