Bacon Brioche Sandwich
Bacon is my love language. Not only is it “stand-alone” good, but it can go in so many dishes, enhancing the flavor of any recipe. Plus, it is versatile to serve any time of day. Now that makes me one “happy” cook, when I can buy something at the store that has a million uses.
But like I need to tell you that. We all know the love we have for bacon, and I’m sure that’s part of the reason of why you’re here.
Quick + Easy, Yet “WOW” Worthy
I had a sandwich a lot like this one at a local food chain recently, and I knew right away it was one that I had to try and recreate at home.
Now let me tell you… you’re going to want to make this bacon brioche sandwich ASAP for your family if you’re looking for something quick and easy.
I have a feeling you’ll WOW them with your super “fancy” culinary skills with this recipe, that doesn’t actually require any fancy skills at all. Let me show you…
For the Love of Bacon
First, I really recommend using thick cut bacon for this recipe. I use thick cut, because I’m a texture gal, and when I can really taste the thick cut of bacon in a bite… my bacon love language is on high-alert.
I also used Oscar Mayer Bacon Naturally Hardwood Smoked Thick Cut Bacon on this, and actually try to use it for all of my bacon recipes. It provides amazing taste and quality in the bacon category.
Oscar Mayer Bacon has carefully selected cuts that are hand trimmed for premium, consistent quality. So when you love something like bacon as much as I do, you want it to be GOOD. Nothing worse than “so-so” bacon.
Step 1: Cook the Bacon
Cook the Oscar Mayer Bacon. (I’m a “crunchy” bacon kind of gal, but I have friends and family members that prefer it’s not cooked as long. So however you prefer your bacon, feel free to cook it as long as you like! Just make sure it is fully cooked!) Set aside, and keep warm.
After you cook the bacon, you’ll want to grab a brioche bun, an egg, and a slice of white cheddar cheese, for each sandwich.
Step 2: Eggs aren’t just for breakfast anymore…
If you’ve noticed “over-easy” eggs on sandwiches all over the menus in your favorite restaurants lately, then you know that eggs aren’t just for breakfast anymore. I think it takes sandwiches to a whole new level.
So gently cook your over-easy eggs, being careful not to bust the egg yolk. (You’ll want to bust that yolk when cutting the sandwich in half, right before serving!)
Step 3: Assemble That Sandwich!
Slice your brioche bun in half, and layer on a slice of cheese, and then top with two slices of bacon. (I sliced each bacon piece in half, so the bacon pieces would sit better on the sandwich.)
Then, carefully top with your over-easy egg, and the top of the brioche bun.
Sometimes, I don’t get so lucky to “pop” the egg yolk when I slice it, but nevertheless, the combination of the crunch of the bacon with the other ingredients is DYNAMITE!

That sounds pretty good to me!
