This breakfast sandwich is one of my favorite Blackstone Recipes. The Fried Eggs and Bacon cooks easily on the large griddle top for a quick and easy breakfast.

The flavor is amazing and taste so much better than stopping at my local fast food restaurant. If you do not have a Blackstone, you can easily make in a skillet and toast your English Muffin in the toaster oven. You may also love this Blackstone Eggs in a Basket or Homemade McGriddles on Blackstone.

Why This Recipe Works

This breakfast sandwich has become a staple breakfast recipe. It can be made with a variety of ingredients and it is healthier option than using Cast Iron Biscuits.

This recipe also is great to meal prep and stock these breakfast sandwiches in the freezer.

Expert Tips

  • Cooking Eggs – Depending on personal preference, you can cook the eggs sunny side up, over-easy, or over-medium. For a fully set yolk, consider covering the eggs with a basting cover on the griddle, which would help cook the top without the need for flipping.
  • Prepare Griddle – Prepare griddle by preheating and adding oil. This helps to cook the ingredients with the best texture.

Serving Suggestions

I love making this breakfast sandwich ahead time to heat and go for a busy morning. But it pairs perfectly with a Berry Fruit Salad or this Easy Fruit Smoothie Recipe.

We even love to make these Blackstone Fried Potatoes for another tasty side dish.
