Two of summers greatest sandwiches and avocado toast get paired together for breakfast nirvana with Bacon Avocado Caprese Breakfast Sandwich.
Not like this is a huge reveal but my tomato love affair has returned. Every summer around this time, I go a little nuts when they start popping up at the farmer’s market. My trip last weekend had me going from stand to stand determining who was selling the best and when they all looked perfect, it took every single bit of self control not to buy them up.
According to my mom, I’ve always been a tomato lover. There was a little farm stand run by an elderly couple not far from our home growing up but it was one of those secret stands behind their house that you had to be “in the know” about. During the summer, my mom would drive around back to see if she’d have anything out and if so, leave the money in a coffee tin and we’d drive away with that days treasures. If they were around, she’d always say to me when you were a little girl you’d couldn’t get enough of my cherry tomatoes!
Apparently the same holds true now, I can’t get enough of them.
With a house full of tomatoes and a giant bundle of basil purchased on the cheap, we’ve been consuming bacon avocado tomato (I rarely keep lettuce at home, so it’s a BAT for us) and caprese sandwiches like you wouldn’t believe.
Since in my mind, I think everything is better with an egg on it and some cheese, why not combine the two for an epic breakfast sandwich? I figured it was going to be a little too messy with two pieces of bread, so I kept it open faced.
This is one of those recipes that you can customize to your liking and my instructions are merely a guideline to building breakfast nirvana.
Promise this though, when you add the bacon, you will weave it so you have a piece in every bite.
