Ingredients

What goes into the best Breakfast Sandwich recipe?

Bread

Don’t you just love to eat bread in the morning?

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

Whether they’re with bread or rice, eggs are so popular for breakfast.

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, and Egg Rolls, which you can prepare for breakfast. You can never go wrong with eggs for breakfast, no matter how you cook them!

Chicken hot dogs

Make it a smoky and meaty sandwich with some chicken hot dogs.

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!

The hot dogs make the sandwich so much more filling. They also give the dish an exciting flavor at every bite. I also use chicken hot dogs for Crispy Hot Dogs, Yam Frittata, and Sausage Rolls!

Bell peppers

A breakfast sandwich is always tastier when it has 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. 

With an assortment of bell peppers, your sandwich will have an even richer flavor than usual. You can also try the bell peppers in Nigerian Fried Rice and Egg Fried Plantain for breakfast.

Sweet peppers

Where there are bell peppers, you might also need sweet peppers.

Like bell peppers, sweet peppers have a sweet and mildly tangy flavor. They also have a slightly vegetal taste that may remind you of green vegetables. Nevertheless, these will have a pleasant flavor, especially when you cook them.

Pair the bell peppers with sweet red peppers for a burst of flavor and color at every bite. I also suggest using sweet peppers for Breakfast Wraps and Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry.

Red onion

Isn’t a sandwich tastier when it has onions in it?

A bit of red onion can add a slight spice to the sandwich for a well-balanced flavor. The red onion is known for its mildly sweet and spicy taste. It also has a crisp and crunchy texture when raw and becomes soft and mellow when cooked.

Overall, you can count on the red onion to give the sandwich a good balance of sweet and spicy flavors. It also tastes incredible in Tortilla Wraps and Chicken Pizza for dining with the family!

Mozzarella cheese

Your Breakfast Sandwich recipe will surely be better when it has mozzarella cheese.

Mozzarella cheese has a mildly sweet flavor with a creamy and milk quality. Its subtle richness truly adds so much depth to the sandwich. As it melts into the bread, it becomes stretchy and gooey.

The cheese will surely add good complexity to the sandwich. It also complements the textures of the other ingredients to make every bite feel and taste good. I also use this cheese for my special Eggs and Hot Dogs recipe!

Seasoning

Don’t forget about the 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

Toast your sandwich perfectly with some 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.

Breakfast Sandwich Recipe Variations

There are other variations of the Breakfast Sandwich recipe.

For the bread, you can use different varieties available. For instance, you can cook with white bread or wheat bread as substitutes. Meanwhile, it’s okay to replace it with mackerel, turkey, chicken, or other protein sources.

On the other hand, try using tomatoes, spinach, chili, and other vegetables for the filling, too. The seasoning is also customizable, depending on how savory you want the sandwich. 

Also, instead of cooking the filling inside the bread, you can cook it separately and just add it on top of the bread. I also suggest using it as a filling for other breakfast breads like bagels, croissants, and muffins.
