This Breakfast Sandwich Baguette has an array of ingredients that all make sense with one bite. This enhanced version of an egg and cheese sandwich is a whirlwind of pleasantry!

The exhilarating thing about cooking is that the most surprising and contrasting ingredients can be mixed together to make a meal that is so coherent in taste. This mayo, egg, arugula, and cheddar cheese combination results in a rainbow of flavors that all make sense. The intertwining flavors come in contact with each other through a creative passion that spreads from your lips to your whole body. This meal is made even more satisfying by your disbelief in how favorable it tastes. It reaffirms the common belief that food is an art form and that this is the Mona Lisa of meals.

The melted cheddar drapes the toasted baguette hugging its warmth and absorbing its flavor. In the same way that people come from different walks of life, these ingredients come from different places in the world of food. However, they all adjoin in one place, the creation of the Breakfast Sandwich Baguette. The taste is so spectacular it seems that these ingredients and this meal was created for the sole purpose of your delight.

Background:

This recipe has a large emphasis on family when it comes to both its creation and personal meaning to me. It was a quarantine discovery, as many things are nowadays. One early evening when I was sitting with my family watching TV, more specifically, the season finale of Modern Family. It was a show that I watched sporadically, mesmerized by my affections of being able to pick up anywhere and know exactly what’s going on while being able to have a laugh. We began our routine commentary that always took place during whatever program we were viewing.

As we watched the interviews of the cast that followed the final episode it came to light that Ed O’Neill better known as Jay Pritchett had a nine year order of lettuce, mayo, cheese, and a fried egg on sourdough bread. With the mentality of nighttime hunger we decided to give it a go the following day but with items, we had at home. The recipe has the same spunk and originality that Modern family is so famed for.

The same way the show had brought my family and millions of others together for years the sandwich has managed to carry on the tradition. Its warm flavor being the first thing you taste in the morning brings an immediate sense of comfort, mirroring the ideal image of home. The power of this sandwich is that it brings along with it the years of laughter and joy that Modern Family brought to all its viewers.

BREAKFAST SANDWICH BAGUETTE INGREDIENTS:

First, let’s chat ingredients…

HOW TO MAKE A BREAKFAST SANDWICH BAGUETTE:

  1. Prep Baguette. Cut the portion of the baguette that you want for your sandwich. Also, make sure to cut it in half. Next put it in the toaster. For me, part of my baguette always sticks out so I set the toaster to the number three and I put each half in twice alternating the side getting cooked.
  2. Cook Egg. While the baguette is toasting, turn the stove on to medium heat and crack your egg on the pan while trying not to have it spread out too far. Cook until the egg white has become firm but the yolk is still runny for an over-easy egg. 
  3. Put it all together. When your baguette is done toasting, put mayo on each half. Then take three slices of cheese and cut them in half. Place three halves on each side of the baguette. Add arugula. Then place the egg on last and close the sandwich.

Substitutions

This is a vegetarian meal. You can use any bread you like as well as any cheese preference. You can also change how you cook your egg based on your liking.
