Bacon, Egg and Cheese on a Buttered Brioche Bun with Sriracha Ketchup
Have I told you that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day? Well this sandwich is one of the reasons why. When I lived in New York, having a bacon, egg and cheese on a roll was as commonplace as a breakfast burrito in California. The restaurant Eggslut has brought the breakfast sandwich to life on the west coast. They really upped the ante with the introduction of the brioche bun. They use a chipotle ketchup that adds a tangy sweetness that is appreciated with all the salty and savory deliciousness from the eggs, bacon, and cheese. If you do not have an Eggslut near you, this recipe will satisfy the craving.
2 Brioche buns, 2 eggs, 6 slices of bacon, 2 slices of American Cheese, 1/4 cup of Ketchup, 1 tsp of Sriracha, butter, salt and pepper.
Butter both sides of Brioche bun and toast on a medium high skillet until golden.
Fry up bacon until desired crispiness. Set aside on paper towels.
Mix Sriracha and ketchup together in a small bowl and set aside.
Before frying egg start to build sandwich by slathering Sriracha Ketchup on the bottom of the bun. Pile two or three slices of bacon on top of ketchup.
Start to fry over easy egg by adding 1 tsp of butter on medium high heat. As egg cooks season with salt and pepper then flip egg once you have golden brown edges.
Once egg is flipped immediately add cheese and turn off heat. Finish sandwich by adding egg and cheese.
Enjoy with your choice of protein such as sausage patty or ham. The sky is the limit enjoy!
