B.E.G. Sandwiches (Bacon-Egg Griddle Sandwiches)

Total Time:
20 min
20 min

4 servings

  • 4 slices applewood-smoked bacon
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or heavy cream
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 8 thick slices sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Cook the bacon on a griddle (or in a large skillet) over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and sour cream in a medium bowl. Remove the bacon from the griddle and drain on paper towels; pour the fat into a small bowl and set aside.

  • Add the egg mixture to the griddle and cook, stirring with a rubber spatula, until just set. Layer 1 slice of cheddar, some scrambled eggs, a piece of bacon and another slice of cheddar on each of 4 slices of bread. Top with the remaining bread.

  • Return the bacon fat to the griddle; add the butter and let melt over medium heat. Place the sandwiches on the griddle, cover and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese melts, about 4 minutes per side.
