"This is our favorite sandwich. The bread can also be toasted. I sometimes make it without the egg for a lighter version."

"a obvious choice for breakfast"
"This is a nice breakfast. Filling enough and very good. It was easy to do before going to work. Thanks MaeEast :) Made for I Recommend tag game"
"I used wholemeal/wholegrain bread and as we don't get cool whip in Australia I used a dab of mayo and I really enjoyed this change of pace from using barbecue sauce and had a very enjoyable and filling breakfast. Thank you MaeEast and LifeIsGood for recommending it, made for I Recommend Tag Game."
"This is a perfect Egg and Bacon Sandwich. Miracle Whip all the way (sorry MizzBliss)!! It must be white bread too! I like to add the lettuce myself, but it's great without. This is definately a summertime sandwich because you can find "real" tomatoes at the market. Not those plastic winter tomatoes! Thanks for posting one great sandwich recipe."
"We add lettuce and call it a BELT (Bacon, egg, lettuce and tomato)."
"Ruffling around the Zaar halls and found this recipe, a method really that just shouted to me to make something, quick, filling, and smelled delicious~ since this is Xmas eve. Just what I was looking for! White bread is a must (even though it is whole grain healthy) 2 slices of crisp bacon, (another must!) fried egg in a bit of butter, put it together, slice the tomato, and you are all set. I also used *Hellmans* but other then that~stayed true to the recipe! Thank you, MaeEast for a delightful, pre-Xmas treat to keep me going today! Winter 2008."
"Worthy of 5 stars for simplicity and comfort-food. I made this for an economical 'breakfast-for-dinner' meal. It is really delicious and filling enough to satisfy. I used Hellmans instead of Miracle Whip, because that is what I had on hand. Thanks for the yummy and easy recipe!"
"This is a great sandwich for breakfast or late night snacks. I have had this type of sandwich before, but always with lettuce as well, but must say I prefer it without having tried this. I know the super soft white bread is so yummy! But I used a reduced calorie wheat bread instead and toasted it and it was really good! Oh and I used regular mayo instead of Miracle Whip but that's what I like. Thanks for sharing~ ~Sue"
"My mom would make these all the time for breakfast. I toast the bread and sometimes use an English muffin instead. I also add a little Seasoning Salt for my taste. This is my ultimate favorite breakfast food. I make this for myself because my DH don't like eggs, and he gets pancakes or French Toast. Yummm"
"This is my son's favorite breakfast sandwich, for him we leave off the tomatoe and add some crisp lettuce and I don't break the yolk as he likes it to break all over the sandwich when he bites down on it. I also toast the bread and sometimes add cheese. Thanks for posting this great little recipe for a great sandwich."
"Yummy sandwich, we hadn't had one of these for a long time, it was sooooo good! I left out the mayo and used whole wheat bread and added a litle dejon mustard. Actually I was going to post mine but looked through the recipes and saw this was so close I decided to review it and post my photo here. We loved this sandwich, had it for supper one night last week. quite delicious and made a quick supper for a nice change."
"Made this morning for breakfast. DH out of town so I wanted something easy and 1 serving. Thanks, I'm sure I'll make again. I used mayo, just my preference."
"What an easy, inexpensive meal! We had this for dinner yesterday with hash browns and although our tomato was yukky, and we had to throw it away, this was still a great dinner! Sometimes the simplest things are the best! Thanks for posting this!!"
"This is one of dh's favorite breakfasts. Sometimes I like to sub ham for the bacon if I am in a hurry. My college used to make these when they had a old timey cafeteria. Also, in the winter when the tomatoes arn't so good, I have subbed cheese for the tomato & miracle whip. Thanks for sharing the tip about the egg!"
"Our local band-aid station (it's not big enough to be a hospital) makes these for me. They are basically the breakfast they serve in a sandwich other than the scrambled eggs, which I can't digest as well as a fried egg (I do not know why, but a scrambled egg makes me deathly ill.) I do swap the mayo for a slice of cheese due to dietary guidelines of the diabetic diet (low-fat low-cal cheese and baked bacon, of course and sometimes wheat bread). But I just wanted to share that even though this is "fattening" they serve it at the hospital. GOTTA LOVE THAT COMFORT FOOD!"
"Just noticed this. It's one of my favs, but kill the Miracle Whip. I'm a Kraft mayo gal, but I think the "mayo" part is individual with the person. Hey, here in the South, Dukes and Hellmans are in most fridges, but mine. lol"
"I'm with everyone else, this is a great sandwich. My variation is this: instead of Miracle Whip, use Kraft Sandwich Spread. It gives a little more zip."
"Love this sandwich! It is also good with a slice of cheese between the egg and the bacon. I used whole wheat bread, rather than white, and skipped the Miracle Whip. Thanks for posting!"
"The regular version is a fried egg on untoasted white bread spread with Miracle Whip. I use the sharp side of a broken egg shell to break the yolk. It makes the metal spatula easier to clean. Bacon sounds nice. Some of these are almost a BLT with an added egg."
"This is a great sandwich! Another variation which I sometimes took to work for lunch is to use sliced, hard-cooked eggs, (salted and peppered), cold bacon and sliced tomatoes. I'd take the two pieces of bread with MW, then assemble the rest at lunchtime."
