Making Breakfast Sandwiches — Photos

This week’s cooking projects from my collection of recipes included two batches of blondies, more zucchini with tomato, bacon, and onion sauce, pickled eggs, and the subject of this post and Saturday morning’s breakfast, a yummy breakfast sandwich I like to call “If I make it, will you eat it?”, another family favourite.

Margarine was taken out and some taken up with a knife:

A frozen slice of bread — not two as called for in my recipe, because the bread I make in a bread machine is tall enough to justify cutting it in half when making sandwiches (see below) — was taken out, and the margarine was spread on it:

The slice of bread was cut into two halves:

Two slices of processed cheese (or “American cheese” slices) were taken out and unwrapped, and placed on the counter to warm up to room temperature (note that natural cheese sliced off the block may be used):

Every once in a while, I buy a large 2kg case of breakfast sausages, cook them all up at once, and then I keep them in the freezer for future eating. I do the same thing with bacon for my mom. If you don’t do so, at this point and according to your preference, cook up some breakfast sausage(s) and/or some bacon.

I then took out a frozen cooked breakfast sausage, and let it warm up a few minutes on the counter:

The sausage was then sliced into four strips along its length:

The sausage was put aside for a few moments.

A burner on my stove was turned on to a low to medium heat:

A cast iron skillet was placed on the stove, and a bit of olive oil was poured into the cast iron skillet:

At this point, I placed the slices of breakfast sausage in the cast iron skillet:

An egg was taken out:

The egg was fried, and — I like eggs over — when it was ready to be turned over …

… the cast iron skillet was somewhat re-positioned, and I lifted the fried egg with a flipper …

When the fried egg was finished cooking, it was transferred to a plate:

The free oil and grease in the cast iron skillet were wiped up with a paper towel (watch out, the cast iron skillet is hot!):

A slice of the bread with the margarine was placed in the hot cast iron skillet, margarine side down:

One of the slices of processed cheese was placed on the slice of bread, and “made to fit”:

… and finally, the second slice of bread with margarine on it was placed on top of the slice of processed cheese, margarine side up:

After a few moments, the sandwich was flipped over, and the bottom side, now the top, had been nicely browned:

After a few more moments, the sandwich was lifted out of the cast iron skillet and served on a plate:

Breakfast is served!

Yummy!!!!
