Learn the secrets to the most amazing bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich.

Start by choosing, warming, and buttering your bread. We like buttermilk biscuits but would let thick-cut white bread or a chewy ciabatta roll slide.

Then, cook your bacon (thick-cut if you have it) until it’s nice and crispy. Then, set it aside on a wire rack to drain (don’t use a paper towel — the bacon can get soggy).

You can use slices of cheese, but we like melting shredded cheddar cheese onto each piece of the bread — it guarantees perfectly-melted cheesy-goodness in every bite.

If you’ve been eating your bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches with scrambled eggs or a fried egg, you’ve been missing out — make an over-easy egg. When you bite into the sandwich the yolk will break and cover the bacon and bread.

Don’t forget to throw a little hot sauce on your sandwich before you close it.

And, if you can handle it, dip the entire sandwich into pancake batter and fry it in hot oil like this ham and cheese sandwich… breakfast perfection!
