Sweet and Salty Breakfast Sandwich
photo by anniesnomsblog
- Ready In:
FOR THE BUNS:
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a food processor or by hand rough chop the cranberries. In a medium bowl mix the cranberries with 1 tsp brown sugar.
- Add the dough to the bowl and mix in the cranberries by hand. Just smash up the dough and form back into a ball.
- Let the dough rest while you prepare the bacon.
FOR THE BACON:
- Lay the bacon slices on a baking sheet covered in foil. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tsp of brown sugar. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until crispy. Let cool for a few minutes before removing from pan to drain on paper towels.
- While the bacon is cooking, cut dough into 4 equal pieces and drop like biscuits onto a lightly greased baking sheet. (They really should look like biscuits). Bake for about 25 minutes or until the tops are completely golden and the bottoms are brown, but not burning.
- Remove from oven and let cool while you prepare the eggs.
FOR THE EGGS:
- You're just making a simple fried egg(or if you like your scrambled do that instead). Melt the butter in a small frying pan over medium heat. Crack one egg into the pan and let cook until the whites begin to set.
- If you have room for more eggs add each one after the whites of the others have just started to set so they don't cook together quite as much.
- Flip the eggs over and cook until desired doneness. I do mine for about 2 minutes on each side, but it's really up to your taste here.
- Remove eggs from pan and let rest on a plate while you assemble the sandwiches.
- Cut the buns in half and but one slice of cheese, one fried egg and two slices of bacon on each.
- Grab a napkin cause these are a little messy :).

I didn't quite know what to expect with these. I can sometimes be a little funny about mixing sweet and savoury, but my fiancé wanted to try these and I'm so glad I made them as they are FANTASTIC!! What a beautiful combination of flavours. I definitely needed a napkin, these do get a little messy, but they're SO good, I don't care!
I was intrigued with this idea so had to try it. I found it interesting and a definite way to jazz up breakfast. I liked the mild tartness to the bread & liked the contrast of the sweet bacon. I would make smaller buns though next time. I elected to fold 2 whole eggs & 2 egg whites into an omelette and then sliced for the sandwiches. I also used a jalapeno havariti. I was confused by the instructions as it only provides for half the cheese. Good luck in the contest!
