    I make this for Dave at least once a month and he loves it. So simple and so good. Cook time does not include cooking the bacon.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Spray a non-stick skillet with Pam.
    2. 2
      Pre-heat pan over medium heat until beads of water sizzles.
    3. 3
      Add eggs, being careful not to break the yolk (see note below), cover and cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or to your liking (we like the yolk runny).
    4. 4
      Toast bread and immediately add the slice of cheese, add the eggs, salt and pepper and the crumbled bacon.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      NOTE:At times I will break the eggs into a bowl and then pour them into the skillet. Haven't had a yolk break yet.

      An unbeatable combination-and totally irresistable. Next time I would probably fry off some mushrooms and squeeze them in between the cheese and the egg layer,just to make it even more decadent. I love the fact that you can also change the way you cook the egg to suit people's tastes (my DH prefers poached egg,so that's what he had on his),but scrambled would work really well too. A great start to the day-thanks Nimz!! Made for PRMR Holiday Special.

      What a "no brainer"!!! I can't believe I never thought of doing this before! I've served each ingredient on a plate together, but never thought of "stacking" them. I made 3 eggs for hubby and used 2 slices of 5 grain toast for him, and I used 2 eggs and a toasted english muffin (split into 2) for myself. So basically 5 eggs, 4 cheese slices, 5 strips of crumbled bacon, 2 toasted bread slices and 1 split & toasted english muffin. (I'm thinking maybe a hollandaise sauce for next time!!! The "New" Eggs Benedict... LOL!!!) Thank you for posting this yummy breakfast. (Made for Name That Ingredient tag)
