National French Bread Day | Classic Breakfast Sandwich – The Foodie Patootie

National French Bread Day | Classic Breakfast Sandwich

I had a plan for today. Yes, it was a plan that was just thought of yesterday afternoon, and Megan came up with it, but my plan failed.

First, I had to go clothes shopping yesterday. I mean, it was just a necessity. Second, I woke up this morning really, really hungry. I didn’t have a huge dinner and I becoming hangrier (hungry + angry) by the second. Thirdly, I was running out of time. I had to leave the house by 10:30am so I went grocery shopping at 8am with a growling stomach. Before I knew it, there was no time for the plan. The plan of Mr. B’s Bistro’s Bread Pudding. WAHH!

Instead, I went for the classic breakfast sandwich, made on french bread, which just happens to be my favorite bread to eat a sandwich on.

Classic Breakfast Sandwich via | #breakfast #sandwich #recipe #foodholidayI scarfed down my breakfast sandwich, just in time to get ready to head out the door. If I would have gone for the bread pudding, it would have taken me a lot longer. But don’t worry, you all. Mr. B’s Bread Pudding will show its face on my blog one day, I promise!

So let’s talk about breakfast sandwiches, shall we?

Classic Breakfast Sandwich via | #breakfast #sandwich #recipe #foodholidayI LOVE breakfast sandwiches. They are so easy and fast to make that you can have many delicious bites of bread, egg and bacon in mere minutes. I always eat my eggs with hot sauce so that was a necessity on my breakfast sandwich. I also spread mayo on the inside bread pieces. I love mayo on breakfast sandwiches. Mmmmm.

So I slapped everything together between my soft pieces of french bread and had a great breakfast to start my day. And now I’m making Coq Au Vin for tomorrow’s food holiday so consider this blog post over.

    So while I’m sure that bread pudding would’ve been so awesome (I LOVE bread pudding) this breakfast sandwich looks soooo divine too. I am a serious lover of breakfast sandwiches but have never made one with French bread before. Will have to do that next time. Love that you used Havarti cheese for it too…so creamy and flavorful…YUM! Oh and bring on the hot sauce at breakfast time!!! Can’t agree with you more…

      I am obsessed with Haverti cheese! Love it so much! If not during the food holidays, the bread pudding will be one of the first things I make in the new year. Also, I think I want to plan a stop at Mr. B’s when we go to NOLA for Megan’s wedding.
