Ingredients

For the Scrambled Eggs:

  • 4 Eggs
  • Kosher Salt & Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Hot Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil

For the Mashed Avocado

  • 1 Avocado
  • Kosher Salt & Freshly Cracked Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 wedge lime about 2 tsp. lime juice

For the Bacon and Egg Breakfast Grilled Cheese:

  • 6 slices Thick Cut Bacon
  • 2 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
  • 4 slices Sourdough Bread
  • 2/3 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2/3 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Instructions

For the Bacon:

  • Heat a large cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon strips until crispy, flipping halfway through to cook both sides evenly, about 10 minutes. Transfer the cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Remove the pan from the heat temporarily so the remaining bacon fat doesn't burn, if necessary.

For the Scrambled Eggs:

  • While the bacon is cooking, make the scrambled eggs. Whisk the eggs, hot sauce, and a pinch of salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Heat a new cast iron skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat, and add the olive oil. Add the eggs to the pan and slightly lower the heat, then cook the eggs until scrambled (about 3-4 minutes.)

For the Mashed Avocado:

  • While the eggs are cooking, make the mashed avocado. Spoon ripe avocado into a bowl and add garlic powder, a pinch of salt and pepper, and fresh lime juice. Mash the avocado until smooth, and set aside.

For the Grilled Cheese:

  • Combine the shredded cheddar and mozzarella. Set aside.
  • Return the pan with the bacon fat back to the heat. Divide the softened butter between all four slices of bread, spreading about 1/2 tbsp. of butter onto one side of each slice.
  • Place one slice of bread, butter side down, into the pan with the bacon fat. Sprinkle 1/3 cup of shredded cheese over the bread, then top the cheese with three slices of bacon. Spoon half of the scrambled eggs over the bacon.
  • Spread half of the mashed avocado over the scrambled eggs, then top the avocado with 1/3 cup of shredded cheese. Top the sandwich with another slice of bread, butter side up. Use a spatula to gently press down on the sandwich.
  • Cook the grilled cheese about 2-3 minutes until the bottom side is browned and crispy, then carefully flip. Cook the other side another 2-3 minutes until browned and crispy, then remove from the heat.
  • Repeat to make the second sandwich. Slice both sandwiches in half, and serve hot!
