Grilled Cheese and Bacon Jam Sandwich

Bacon Jam Sandwich

My previous post was about bacon and onion jam. The one following it had to be something I made with the bacon jam, right? It’s a good old grilled cheese, of course. This is when carbs and fat hangout together to give you a piece of heaven. The bacon sandwich is just right with its saltiness from bacon and sweetness from the onions. I used regular cheese slices you get in the market. But if you have good cheddar or even mozzarella, your sandwiches would be even better. Alternately, you could just toast bread and top it with the jam and place the cheese just on top, broil it in the oven for 3-4 mins or till cheese has melted over the jam.

Breakfast sandwich with leftover salad

Recipe for breakfast sandwich

I overeat. And that’s because I overcook. There are always leftovers, which gives me the chance to use them wisely and make something new for the next day. Like the post before this one, where I made a salad. A large one. Leftovers went into and omlette which in turn went into a sandwich. You could do it with leftovers from any salad, chicken dish or even with leftover sabzi.  Just don’t add any gravy in your eggs! You could, but I’m not responsible for the consequences!

Beat 2 – 3 eggs till nice and fluffy. Add the salad (without the dressing, of course) leftovers and mix.

In a greased and hot pan, pour the eggs over and let it cook.

Sprinkle – salt, pepper, seasonings, dried herbs if you’d like.

Flip if you want your omlette completely cooked on both sides, or fold and take it off the heat if you like it slightly under.

Take a slice of bread and use either cheese spread or butter. Place half the omlette over it.

Place a slice of cheese on the omlette. I used mozzarella. You could use any other.

Top this with fresh greens like rocket, basil, spring onions or any other kinds.

Place another slice of bread over this and use a sandwich grill or just brown both sides on a nonstick pan with some butter. I used a waffle maker though. The sandwich turned out nice and crisp.

Nothing like a filling breakfast to kickstart the day. And what better way to use leftovers!
