Egg Sandwich with Spinach, Brie and Maple Bacon

Things I love in life:

1. Bacon

2. The Southern husband

3. Brie

4. English muffins

5. Baby Spinach

6. Noisy, disobedient but lovable dogs

7. Eggs, over easy

8. Noisy, disobedient but lovable teenagers.

Five of these things are part of the sandwich we had for dinner tonight.  (And by the way, don’t you love sandwiches-for-dinner night? I do.  Add that to the above list.)

I won’t lie to you, this is a messy one to eat, but man, is it worth every single drip and spatter.  You toast up the muffins and while they are still warm, spread on some nice soft Brie.  Yes, on both sides.  Let them sit there while you slather some maple syrup on the bacon and cook it in the oven.  While the bacon is cooking, saute some baby spinach until it is nice and soft, and then cook up some eggs, over easy – as hard or soft as you like.  I like soft, myself.

Now slide the egg onto the bottom half of the muffin, lay some spinach over the egg, and a couple of maple bacon pieces over the spinach.  Pop the other muffin half on top.  At this point, the heat of everything is going to start turning that cheese into a melty sauce of molten Brie, and you may start to weep a little in anticipation.  This is normal.   Now sit down and get ready to eat the best egg sandwich in the world.

    Looking at that picture seriously made me contemplate skipping class and making this. You're dangerous, lady. I've got to stop reading this blog before class.

    I used to hate brie and English muffins, but I've started to warm up to the latter and LOVE the former. That looks so delicious.

  20. Looks delicious, but one question: " then cook up some eggs, over easy – as hard or soft as you like." If an egg is fried over easy, then, by definition, it is soft. If it's fried in other ways it can be hard, but not if it's fried over easy. Sorrie — that's the short-order cook in me speaking; I'm done now.
