Ingredients

What goes into the best Breakfast Sandwich recipe?

Bread

Every sandwich recipe starts with good-quality bread. In this dish, the bread holds the filling together. Once cooked, it will have a crusty texture that pairs well with the creaminess inside. 

You can use store-bought bread, but I also have homemade bread recipes for you. I always ensure we have bread because I often use it for Bread Pizza, French Toast, and an Egg and Cheese Sandwich!

Eggs

The eggs bind the vegetables to the bread for a full sandwich. These also give moisture for a tender and light texture. Moreover, adding eggs is a great way to get protein for your body.

For more egg recipes, I suggest cooking Scotch Eggs, Boiled Eggs, and Egg Rolls, which you can prepare for breakfast.

Chicken hotdogs

Give the sandwich a smokey and meaty quality by adding chicken hot dogs. It also balances the vegetables in this recipe and adds a tremendous flavor that’s perfect for meat lovers!

I also use these for Crispy Hot Dogs, Yam Frittata, and Sausage Rolls!

Bell peppers

Bell peppers are healthy, aromatic, and delicious vegetables that can instantly improve your dish. Moreover, this recipe uses yellow and orange bell peppers for sweetness and green bell peppers for mild earthiness. 

Sweet pepper

Pair the bell peppers with sweet red peppers for a burst of flavor and color at every bite. It also has a fruity and mildly sweet taste that radiates throughout the filling. 

Red onion

A bit of red onion can add a slight spice to the sandwich for a well-balanced flavor. This ingredient’s vibrant color and nice aroma can also leave you wanting more.

Mozzarella cheese

Make the breakfast sandwich special with mozzarella cheese for a sweet, salty taste and milky consistency. It also seals in the filling to keep the sandwich together. 

Seasoning

Further improve the meal by seasoning the filling with mixed herbs, chives, all-purpose seasoning, garlic powder, and sea salt. These spices are guaranteed to intensify the overall taste of the filling. 

Butter or oil

Get the right crunchy and flaky texture of the sandwich by cooking it in a bit of butter or oil. Basting these ingredients over the bread can also keep it crisp and flavor as it cooks without burning the bread.
