Steak and Egg Sandwich

These hearty Steak and Egg Sandwiches are a filling and delicious way to start your day (or end it!)

Breakfast...honestly it's probably the most versatile meal of the day, in my opinion.  You can have breakfast foods any time of the day, breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  Lunch and dinner foods don't work so well for breakfast though, a burger at 7 am?  No, thank you!

If you haven't guessed from previous posts, my family often has breakfast foods for dinner.  Often it's pancakes or an omelet, but last week we tried something completely new, different, and completely delicious!  We had Steak and Egg Sandwiches.

The concept of adding steak to a breakfast sandwich was completely new to me.  We're no stranger to breakfast sandwiches, but they typically consist of an egg with cheese, between two slices of English muffin.  This breakfast sandwich turns it up a notch!  Mike and I both loved them, and they are a filling dinner, especially when paired with a side of fruit.  We ended up with enough for leftovers too, and they were just as good the next day.

I found this recipe on Nicole's blog, PicNic.  As I was searching for the perfect recipe for this month's Secret Recipe Club, I came across a variety of delicious recipes like Pizza Pinwheels, Caramel, Apple, and Almond Pancakes, Apple Caramel Scrolls, and Chili Chicken Pita Bread Pizzas (notice a breakfast and pizza trend?).  Nicole's blog is relatively new to me.  I "met" her a few months ago when she made my pizza casserole for her secret recipe.  I loved browsing through her recipes, and reading her stories.  There are quite a few recipes I'll be going back to again!

Steak and Egg Sandwiches

Serves 4

4 ciabatta rolls
8 slices bacon
2 thin sliced steaks (mine were labeled for carne asada)
6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1.  Cook bacon until crispy, then set aside.

2.  Place steaks in a hot skillet and season with steak seasoning or salt and pepper.  Cook until done to your liking, mine took about 3 minutes per side.  Then set aside.

3.  Beat the eggs and milk.  Then cook like an omelet in a skillet.  (Don't fold the eggs over though.)  Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs and let the cheese melt.

4.  To assemble the sandwiches, cut the egg into 4 equal pieces, cut the steaks in half.  Place the egg slice, steak, and 2 slices of bacon (broken in half, if desired), on a toasted ciabatta roll.
