Whipped Maple Goats Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

The anatomy of the perfect breakfast sandwich.
As anyone who has frequented my Instagram account more than twice will know, I love breakfast. Love it. I would honestly eat breakfast food three meals a day, if it was socially acceptable. Or if I wouldn’t suffer some kind of cardiac arrest from bacon overdose.
In the dividing line of sweet versus savory, I most certainly fall into the later category. Especially when it comes to breakfast. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love the big stack of pancakes covered in maple syrup just as much as the next guy, but I’ve always tended to lean a little bit more towards the savory things in life.
For me, the breakfast sandwich is the perfect breakfast food.
Whether you eat it standing at your desk, in your car, with a fork and knife, or with a strong coffee and newspaper in hand, to me, it’s the perfect breakfast. It can be sweet or savory. Spicy. Luxurious. And there’s basically an endless list of possibilities.
As far as I’m concerned though, there are a few things that you need to make the perfect breakfast sandwich:

Great bread

Awesome cheese
Runny eggs
Quality protein
That could be Goats Cheese & Smoked Salmon. Lobster & brie. Bacon & Aged Cheddar. Porchetta & Parmesan. Endless possibilities, really. But most certainly, the better the ingredients, the better the result.

Whipped Goats Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
Serves 4
8 slices bacon
4 eggs
8 slices thick cut toast
1 cup greens
1 tablespoon butter
Whipped Goats Cheese
1 cup soft goats cheese
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon basil, finely diced
Salt & pepper
Preheat your oven to 350.
Place bacon on a baking tray, and bake (turning 1/2 way through) until nice and crispy (about 20 minutes)
Combine goats cheese, cream cheese, and maple syrup in the base of a food processor, and pulse for 1 minute. Fold in basil, and season with salt & pepper to taste.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan over medium heat. Crack in your eggs and fry until your whites have set, but the yolks and still nice and runny.
Spread 1 tablespoon of your goats cheese on a piece of toast. Top with 2 pieces of bacon and an egg. Have the best start to your day ever.
