Today I am sharing one of my favorite breakfast sandwich recipes. It is honestly SO GOOD that I eat it not only for breakfast but sometimes dinners too! Summer is a great time to get ripe heirloom tomatoes at the Farmer’s Market or grocery store (if you don’t grow your own) and they are one of the components that make this sandwich so flavorful.

My Favorite Breakfast Sandwich
This recipe is adapted from a Food Network/ Bobby Flay recipe. The original is a vegetarian recipe, but I added ham to mine to add another punch of protein. I personally LOVE goat cheese, but I know its one of those love/ hate ingredients. You could easily switch it with fresh mozzarella or your favorite spreadable cheese.
- Baguette, sliced lengthwise*
- Olive oil, to brush
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 3 ounces fresh goat cheese
- 2 thinly sliced heirloom tomatoes
- 4 large eggs, poached
- 1 cup micro arugula
- Lemon Pepper Vinaigrette, recipe follows
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 1/2 tsp Black pepper, Freshly ground
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 cup Olive oil, extra-virgin
Whisk together the lemon juice, mustard and salt in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil, until emulsified. Whisk in black pepper to taste.
Tip: put all ingredients in a small lidded jar and shake, shake, shake or use an immersion blender.
Assemble Breakfast Sandwich
Heat grill pan and broiler. Slice baguette lengthwise and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with a bit of salt & pepper and place on hot pan, cut side down and cook until toasty. Spread with goat cheese and place under broiler until golden. Layer with sliced ham, sliced tomato and poached egg. Top with arugula, that has been tossed with a little dressing and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle a little more vinaigrette over each egg.
When serving: Break open egg to allow yolk to run over the sandwich.
