The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

I tried an interesting sandwich at a café a few months ago, and it was probably one of the best that I have ever had. This delicious meal gave me the idea of whipping this up at home and resulted in the ultimate breakfast sandwich recipe.

Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

This sandwich combines all the typical ingredients that you would find in a full breakfast. This usual list of ingredients includes crispy bacon, hash-browns, egg, spinach and of course bread. It’s not the healthiest breakfast, but it is indeed incredibly tasty.

I have tried to make this recipe to be as easy as possible but also be one of the best-tasting breakfast sandwiches you would have ever eaten.

All you need regarding equipment is a simple sandwich press, but you could also do it in a fry-pan if you don’t have one. Also, if you’re in need of even more amazing sandwich recipes be sure to take a look at our fun easy recipe cookbook, it comes with a 20 recipe toastie book.

Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

Prep time
5 Minutes
Cook time
10 Minutes
Total time
15 Minutes


  • 3 rashers of bacon
  • 1 hash brown
  • 1 egg
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1-2 slices cheese
  • 2 slices bread
  • 1 Tbsp. mayo
  • 1 Tbsp. BBQ Sauce


  1. Firstly turn the sandwich press on so that it heats up. (Alternatively, you can use a frying pan)
  2. Place the hash brown onto the sandwich press and start cooking for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the bacon and cook to your preferred preference (Crispy etc.), 5 minutes was long enough for me.
  4. Remove both the hashbrown, bacon and place to one side.
  5. Start to cook the egg.
    While the egg is cooking, assemble the sandwich. I did it in the following order:
    Slice of Bread
    Sliced Tomato
    Sliced Cheese
    BBQ Sauce
    Slice of bread
  6. Cook the sandwich until the bread is crispy.
  7. Serve and Enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • You’re able to replace the bacon with ham, both work just as well.
  • One thing that you’re able to do if you don’t have a sandwich press is to cook this in a frypan instead. Just follow the same method, but you will need to flip the sandwich when cooking it so that both sides are crisped up.
  • If you’re not worried too much about your diet, then you can butter the bread to achieve a deliciously crispy outside.
  • A good tomato relish or caramelized onion are the perfect replacements for sliced tomato.

    Hi Gus! I’m new to your site. This sandwich looks amazing! Also love the video – and how no grated cheese gets left behind = ). I don’t have a sandwich maker so I’ll have to go the skillet route with this one. Cheers!
