Irish Breakfast Sandwich Recipe
Fried eggs, tomatoes and rashers is my favourite hot sandwich. I love the combination of all the flavours here
It is a perfect hot sandwich for a late lunch or quick snack at night. I do not make it for breakfast because I am not the best first thing in the morning so I only ever have cereal or plain toast.
But if you are one of those people that is full of energy and the joys of life first thing in the morning it is also a great breakfast meal.
There are so many ways to fry an egg. I love my eggs fried quickly with the yolk left slightly cooked so that it is runny when eaten.
My sister will only eat her eggs if they are fried until the yolk is solid. I have done both here in this hot sandwich recipe, one for myself and one for my sister.
Rashers of Bacon
In Ireland we call these rashers. There are many different ones you can buy and use. For this sandwich I prefer to cook the back bacon rasher.
I use the streaky bacon when I am cooking a fry up with home made chips for my dinner. There are also many different ways of cooking rashers.
They can be grilled or fried on the pan. Do you prefer yours soft or very well done?
Streaky bacon fried until crispy is my favourite with egg and chips. But for this recipe I like back rashers well done.
There are so many different tomatoes on the market today that we are spoilt for choice.
But for frying I prefer the larger beef tomato.
My sister likes hers fried in big pieces and very well done.
I on the other hand prefer mine cooked in smaller pieces but also well cooked.
How you cook these ingredients for your own hot sandwich is up to you. The beauty of this recipe is that you can cater to all tastes as I have done here because it is so easy and quick.
Step by step instructions and photos
I have taken photos as I cooked and prepared these delicious sandwiches so you can see the step by step instructions at each stage.
If you do not like the food cooked as much as I have here just remove it from the frying pan when it suits you for your perfect breakfast sandwich.

Irish Breakfast Sandwich
I know the combination of fried eggs, tomatoes and rashers on the bun or toast looks messy.
Oh but it really does taste so delicious!
