Fuel for Finals: 3 Cheese Breakfast Sammie

Yes, I should be studying for finals, but our eggs were just about to expire. Plus this sandwich is a great start to a productive morning. I paired it with some Jasmine tea with local honey. 

  • Goat Cheese
  • Gruyere Cheese
  • Sharp White Cheddar Cheese
  • Basil
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Bacon
  • Egg
  • Whole Wheat Bread

Start by cooking the bacon on a frying pan. Then cook the eggs either over-easy or over-hard. I usually go with over-hard so the sandwich is easier to eat. While the egg is cooking prepare the rest of the sandwich. Add Dijon mustard to the sides of the bread. On one piece of bread add the basil, and on the other, the cheese. I crumpled up all the different cheeses together and squished them onto the bread with a knife. Add the bacon on top of the cheese. Once the egg is done add it to the bacon and then put the sandwich together. 

Now grill it, just like a basic grilled cheese. Start out by buttering the outsides of the sandwich. I usually make my grilled sandwiches on a frying pan over medium heat, covered. Check the underneath of the bread every minute or so to make sure it doesn't burn. Flip it before it burns and then do the same for the second side. You don't want to cook it too fast, otherwise the cheese won't melt in time. I have found that the covered top allows for a more even cooking and melts the cheese faster.
