The Perfect Breakfast Sandwich

Sunday is the perfect day for brunch.

I broke out an electric griddle I bought a few years ago to make some breakfast sandwiches and they were AWESOME!

Here is what I did:

Set the griddle to 275 F and place the applewood smoked bacon on first. Cook for approximately 10 minutes, flipping the bacon over every few minutes.

**I wipe the excess bacon grease off the griddle as it cooks with paper towel held with tongs.

When the bacon has about 3 minutes left to cook butter a bagel and place on the griddle, cut side down. Press down gently with a spatula.

Crack an egg in the center of the griddle. Season with pepper and cook for 1 minute. After 1 minute, break up the yolk gently with your spatula.

Remove your bacon to a paper towel over a plate to drain. Turn off the heat on the griddle and flip the egg over.

Put your bagel on a plate. Take 2 slices of American cheese and lightly hold them on the hot griddle for a few seconds. Once they start to melt lay them over the egg.

Move the egg to the bagel with your spatula. Grab your bacon, break the strips in half, and lay on top of your egg. Top with your other half of bagel. 

Just as good as any breakfast place I've ever been to!!
