Bacon Egg and Cheese Sandwich

A bacon, egg and cheese sandwich is a Breakfast Sandwich made with bacon, eggs (typically fried or scrambled), cheese and bread, which may be buttered and toasted. Many similar sandwiches exist, substituting alternate meat products for the bacon or using different varieties of cheese or bread. The sandwich is often served as a breakfast item with coffee. BEC is sometimes used as an acronym for the sandwich, as is BE&C.


Many variations on the theme exist. Common choices for cheese include Colby, cheddar, and Swiss. The bacon can be substituted with many other types of preserved or seasoned meat like breakfast sausage, ham, bacon, or pork roll. Similarly, a croissant, bagel, toast, English muffin, kaiser roll, or any other type of bread roll could be used as the bread for the sandwich. The dish is also served as a burrito or taco.

Tomato is sometimes used as an addition. A more robust version includes a Hash Brown. A version was adapted as a low carbohydrate meal. The bacon egg and cheese sandwich has also been modified into Hot Pockets and Lean Pockets.

Bacon Egg and Cheese Sandwich
Many similar sandwiches exist, substituting alternate meat products for the bacon or using different varieties of cheese or bread. The sandwich is often served as a breakfast item with coffee.
Serves: 1
  • 2 slices sandwich bread ( any variety would work, but we like the basic white sandwich bread for this.)
  • 2 slices cooked bacon
  • 1 fried egg, cooked until the yolk is just hard
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • butter
  1. Butter one side of each slice of bread.
  2. Place one slice of bread, butter side down on a hot grill or panini press. Place one slice of cheese on the bread.
  3. Place 2 slices of bacon on top of cheese. Then place egg on top of bacon.
  4. Add the last slice of cheese and the second slice of bread with the butter side up.
  5. Cook on medium high heat for 2-3 minutes or until outside of the bread is slightly browned and the cheese is starting to melt.
  6. Carefully flip the sandwich over and cook for 2-4 more minutes or until the second side is done and the cheese is completely melted. (If you are using a panini press you will not need to flip the sandwich.)
  7. Serve and enjoy!
Alternatively you can use bagels, English Muffins, or Kaiser rolls instead of sandwich bread
