The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich | A Dish Worth Getting Out of Bed For

As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But sometimes, we get stuck in rut and either skip breakfast or just eat the same thing. Today, I present to you The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich. Truly a breakfast dish to get excited about.

The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich
This Breakfast Sandwich is packed with so many great flavors, it´s easy to make and done in just 15 minutes. But the best part? It´s made with simpe ingredients and you can prep the sauce ahead of time and actually get this sandwich done in just 5 minutes.

The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich
The backbone of this sandwich is the romesco sauce. It´s what really takes this sandwich to the next-level in greatness. Made with just jarred roasted red bell pepers, tomato paste, hazelnuts, almonds, garlic, vinegar and olive oil.

The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: I used a baguette, but you can use any bread you like. However, if you use a bread that does not have a strong texture. Make sure to toast it, that way the sandwich does not fall apart when you add all the ingredients.

  2. Heat a fry pan with a medium heat and add in 1/4 cup extra virgin oive oil, after 3 minutes add an egg into the pan and cook for 1 minute without moving, then using a spatula, splash the hot oil over the egg to cook the yolk, remove the egg from the pan and continue to fry the rest of the eggs in this method, then season the fried eggs with sea salt & black pepper

    By the way, I make my own bread, so the baguette will be fresh and I will know all the ingredients in it. No preservatives or chemicals.

    I have been looking for something different to have for breakfast and this is it! The Romesco sauce looks great. Question: what other recipes can I use it for?
    Thanks so much Albert.
