Breakfast Sandwich of Champions

The breakfast sandwich of champions.

That is exactly how I would describe this sandwich.

It's nothing new.  I think I saw it on Peanut Butter Fingers first and then it popped up on a few others blogs.  It wasn't long before it seemed like everyone was eating these sandwiches.  You know how the blogosphere works with certain food trends; it gets picked up on one and then all of a sudden everyone and their distant Aunt in Portland seem to be making it.

At first glance I said that there was no way that I would ever make it.  I mean, who puts jam on their eggs?  And use cheese that isn't cheddar?  No, thank you.

Well, I'm a sucker for a trend and after seeing it pop up on yet another blog I decided to give it a try.  I threw together the sandwich, added some canadian bacon for good measure (because canadian bacon makes everything better) and crossed my fingers.

The verdict?

I now eat this about four times a week and go through eggs and canadian bacon quicker than IHOP.

Breakfast Sandwich of Champions (aka Egg-Ham-Cheese-Jam sandwich)


1 english muffin
1 egg, beat
1 slice canadian bacon
1 slice cheese (mozzarella, provolone, havarti, etc)
1 tbsp strawberry/raspberry jam


Toast the english muffin.

Meanwhile, heat the saute pan and beat your egg.  Put the bacon in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until lightly browned.  Remove the bacon and add scramble the egg.  Assemble all ingredients on the english muffin and stuff-yo-face.


  1. I LOVE sweet/savory combos so I am ashamed to say I haven't tried this yet! Good to know you are a fan too :). I swear I'll get to it soon!

  2. YUM! My husband requests something similar every time we stay at my parents house- my mom loves to make this for him! :)

    1. It has become my newest obsession! They are just so good!! And I best they taste even better when someone makes them for you! lol

  3. i still haven't tried the jam + eggs combo, but i'm sure i would like it :)
