California Egg in the Hole Sandwich

First of all, I’d like to thank all of you for being so supportive and for all your caring and sincere comments about our adoption news. We are heartbroken and at this point just waiting to hear how this latest political drama will play out. We continue to pray for a miracle.

Here’s a unique twist on the typical egg sandwich. My husband and I have been making it quite often on the weekends lately. I cook the eggs inside the bread, just like an egg-in-the-hole sandwich. Then I top it with bacon, tomato and avocado. It’s a great combination of crunchy, toasted bread and fried egg, crisp, salty bacon, refreshing tomatoes and creamy avocado. Yum! It really is a winner and doesn’t take too long to make either, which I consider pretty important for a breakfast meal. 

I have a post about how I cook bacon and a really cool tip on how to store it. Check it out. While the bacon is cooking, prepare the egg sandwiches. Cut out a hole from the center of each slice of bread. I used a biscuit cutter, but anything will work. You can even cut it out with scissors or a paring knife. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Heat 1 Tablespoon of butter in a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. When the butter is no longer foaming, place two slices of bread in the skillet. If your skillet is small, you can do one slice of bread at a time. Crack an egg into the center of each slice of bread. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 3 minutes, then flip the sandwich over and cook for as long as you like, depending on if you want the yolk to be runny or fully cooked.

Cut the tomato into slices. Cut the avocado in half, take out the pit. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh of the avocado. Slice the avocado as thick or thin as you like. Place 2 slices of bacon on each sandwich. Top with 2 slices of tomato and avocado. Season with salt and pepper. You can also use some fresh herbs on the sandwich, parsley or chives.

    Wow this looks really good. Sometimes we have people come over and stay the night at our house, and usually sunday is the day i have to make something for breakfast. Were usually all running around getting ready for church since its at 10am here, and i always have trouble with making something quick but nice for guests. This looks perfect! Thanks!
    Is there a way to pin your recipes onto Pinterest? Im sure a lot of the girls i know would love this blog!

      I know what you mean, Victoria.
      It’s always a challenge trying to come up with something quick and yummy when everyone is rushing around getting ready and I know I have to get ready too:). I have a Share button at the bottom of each post. If you click on it, you’ll be able to find Pinterest on the list too. I’ll try to put up a Pin It button that’s much easier to see sometime soon. Thanks for the compliment.

Thank for another great breakfast idea! It seems that you love breakfast foods just as much as I do…always something fancy: )
