The Denver Sandwich

Heellllooo… is anyone still there??
It had been so long! I am so sorry, moving was way more stressful than I expected it to be, but we are finally done. I sure hope we don’t have to do that again for another 12 years!

I am in love with our new place. It is so much bigger, it is amazing.

It has taken a few days but we have most of our things put away. The spare bedroom is still in chaos but it will get there eventually.

I needed to get back into the kitchen today; I have been missing it so much.

I decided to make one of my all-time favourite breakfasts, The Denver Sandwich. It is a simple egg sandwich filled with veggies and bacon, I just love it.

What you need,

3-4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
4-5 small mushrooms, sliced
2 green onions, sliced
¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese, diced or grated
2 large eggs
1 tbsp. milk or cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 slices hot buttered toast

Start by cooking your bacon. I like to do mine in the oven, it always comes out perfectly. Just cover a pan in tin foil and spray lightly with non-stick spray. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lay the bacon on the prepared pan in a single layer, leaving a little space between the slices.
Bake on the lower rack for 12-15 minutes or until you reach your desired crispness, I like to flip mine halfway through.
Remove from the oven and drain the bacon on a paper towel then chop.

In a medium skillet, heat a tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Toss in the mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes until softened and starting to brown. Add the green onions and cook 1 minute more.

In a small bowl lightly whisk the eggs, add the milk and whisk to combine. Season the eggs liberally with salt and pepper.

Add the cooked bacon to the mushrooms and onions and stir to combine. Pour the eggs all over and top with the cheese.
Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook until the eggs are cooked through.

Divide the egg mixture between 2 pieces of toast and top with the remaining 2 toasts.

Serve with a little fresh fruit and you have a perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner!

Have a great Monday everyone‼
