Fried Egg Sandwich – Summer Breakfast

Share this...

Last Updated on June 6, 2023 by Leah Hall

A great summer breakfast or brunch, this easy breakfast recipe will start your day off right.


This summer has been one of the best tomato seasons that we can remember. With a bucket or two of tomatoes sitting on our kitchen counter needing to be eaten, we have found ourselves finding lots of new ways to enjoy tomatoes, (our Tomato Water Bloody Mary). But, sometimes you just want to return to something that is classic, like this bacon and egg sandwich.

We had gotten up early to head down to the farmer’s market and had skipped breakfast, so by the time we got back home we were famished. With it being brunch time it only made sense to mash two classic sandwiches into one fantastic breakfast.

What Ingredients are Needed for the Breakfast Sandwich?

  • Garlic
  • Basil
  • Tomato
  • Bacon
  • Bread
  • Eggs
  • Onion
  • Butter
  • Salt and Pepper


Combining the fried egg sandwich and the BLT, this breakfast sandwich takes the best of both sandwiches! It melds them into what might be the perfect summer breakfast sandwich! Runny silky egg yolks and the juicy tangy tomato combine with the sweet onions and salty bacon to make a sandwich full of layers. 


Topping it off with a bit of fresh picked basil gave a splash of herbal freshness and really finished the sandwich.
