Breakfast BLT Sandwich RecipeHeather Tullos | Sugar Dish Me
Breakfast BLT Sandwich is a mouth-watering BLT for breakfast. Only with an egg and savory cream cheese!
Your favorite lunch staple just got a breakfast makeover! Breakfast BLT sandwiches combine all the toast plus bacon, lettuce, and tomato goodness of a traditional BLT, plus a little fancy spread and a perfect fried egg!
When I was in high school my friends and I used to frequent this diner. It was the most amazing rendition of a greasy spoon dive with vinyl booths, weird carpet from the 70’s, and a waitress named Nan who always had pens stuck in her hair. It was there that I learned the complete pleasure of a simple sandwich on toast.
There are two toasted sandwiches that top the diner charts - the club sandwich and the BLT.
I’ll say that I’ve never been much of a fan of mayo, and when I was younger I would not touch a tomato with a ten foot pole. Aren’t teenager taste buds fun?!
Anyways. I was always a club sandwich, hold the tomato and mayo girl. Nan loved accommodating a bunch of kids with special orders, I’m sure. I had a friend that always ordered a BLT, but with my mayo + tomato phobias, that would have been some kind of a sad, dry sandwich. I don’t remember what made me do it, but one day I decided to bite the bullet and order a BLT with all the stuff I wouldn’t eat.
They have topped my list of favorite sandwiches ever since, and I anxiously await fresh garden tomatoes every year to really take a great sandwich straight over the top.
But sometimes I want my awesome BLT sandwich fix first thing in the morning. So I took my over-the-top great sandwich and sent it over the moon with the addition of a fried egg and some fancy sandwich spread.
You can cook your eggs any way you’d like , but in my world the runny yolk is king and I always shoot for over medium. It adds a whole dimension of richness and flavor, and really breakfasts things up.
A traditional BLT calls for mayo, so for breakfast - for this sandwich - I can offer you three delicious options. You could opt for plain mayonnaise. You could amp it up a little and try some of this garlic dill aioli. Or you could go in what for me feels like the best breakfast direction and use a savory flavored cream cheese.
I highly recommend the cream cheese.
We know two other BLTs that could benefit from the cream cheese treatment! Tanya's avocado BLT and Christina's BLT wrap would be excellent with a little garlic and chive action.
