Open-Faced Egg & Goat Cheese Sandwich

open-faced egg & goat cheese sandwich

When I get breakfast at a restaurant, I want EVERYTHING. Eggs, potatoes, bacon, french toast/pancakes. All of it.

This probably stems from my lack of motivation most mornings to make elaborate breakfasts at home. On Saturday OR Sunday (almost never both), I’ll make the whole shibang, sure.

Otherwise… there’s always oatmeal or something.

Allow me to introduce you to my new favorite middle-ground breakfast. A little more involved than pouring hot water over oats, but definitely still a cinch.

So easy in fact, that you can complete it before your coffee is done – simply using the brain power you woke up with! Whoa!

four ingredient breakfast

Four ingredients. That’s what’s up.

Salt and pepper don’t count as ingredients, do they?

Well, either way. Still super easy. You ready?

Toast your bread.

Slather it with goat cheese.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and dill (tarragon might also be nice).

Top with fried egg.

    Delicious! Sometimes the simplest combinations are the most winning–love the nutty bread and fresh herbs. Can’t wait to try this!

  3. Jenny says:

    I share your enthusiasm for breakfast – if I ever stay in a hotel with a breakfast buffet I can be there for hours working my way through everything!

    This looks like a really great start to the day – love the goats’ cheese.

  4. This looks so good! That bread looks divine, goat cheese is one of our favourite cheeses, and runny is the only way to have your yolk! Fantastic recipe!

      Thanks! If you ever make your way to San Diego, you’ve gotta check out Bread & Cie – it’s the best bread in the city. I stock up every time I’m in town!

  5. What a delicious breakfast sandwich. I must give it a try. I love the fact it is so easy and soo delicious:) Thanks for sharing!

    This post makes me long for Star Trek technology that would instantly transport that to me via my computer screen. It looks incredibly yummy!

    I’d love to know how you get such a perfect looking, over-medium egg! Also would like to know what kind of bread you used above.

    • brittany says:

      I wonder – if that technology existed, would we ever leave our computers? I know I wouldn’t!

      Wanna know something funny? Here’s my secret to the perfect over-medium egg: set out to make an over-easy egg, get distracted setting up photography equipment and corralling your pug, then voila! – over-medium. But in all seriousness, the egg is always going to keep cooking for a minute after you take it off the heat, so when it looks over-easy in the pan it should be over-medium once it hits your plate.

      The bread is the walnut scallion variety from Bread & Cie in San Diego (I love that this kind turns purple-ish for some reason). It’s bread heaven!

  7. Janet says:

    I have never been much for pancakes or waffles. Yes, they look delicious slathered in syrup but, for me, they just don’t measure up. Now *this* is a sandwich I can sink me teeth into! Thanks for making this non-pancake gal happy!

    • brittany says:

      My husband is the same way, so it’s almost always savory breakfasts in this house. I’m glad the savory-breakfast lovers approve! :)

  8. cindy says:

    Whenever we go to breakfast, I try to get Sean to order something savory (that I want) and I’ll order something sweet, so we can share and I win! ha!

    fried egg sandwiches of all varieties are my go-to semi-fancy weekend breakfast. I love the fresh herbs here!

    • brittany says:

      Haha yes!!! That’s totally my strategy. In fact, I guess I’ve been overusing it since lately Josh will try to quietly decide on something and keep it a secret until we order! What the hell?!

      I steal some anyway. The problem with his plan is that I like everything, so the joke is on him!
