The BEST Breakfast Sandwich
There is a place in town that makes the B E S T breakfast sandwiches on the planet. However, by being the best there are a few issues with the sandwich:
  1. They sell out fast
  2. I have 4 kids and going anywhere for breakfast isn’t really ideal
  3. Repeat steps 1 & 2

In my attempt to recreate the sandwich, I came up with a new version that I’m positive will leave you satisfied on a lazy Saturday morning.

Bookmark this one for a rainy or snowy weekend when you’re craving brunch, but don’t want to leave the house. Pair it with some mimosas to really feel like you’re living the highlife.

Happy Weekend, Friends!
