Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich with Maple Glazed Bacon

Remember those Rosemary Buttermilk Biscuits? Well, unsurprisingly, they make delicious breakfast sandwiches. How does maple glazed bacon sound to you? Yeah, it sounded good to me too.  So I put it on a sandwich.  Once you have the biscuits, this sandwich is really quick to make and so, so good.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day after all.

Bake the biscuits first.  I suggest the Rosemary Buttermilk Biscuits recipe, but if you must, you can buy biscuits from the grocery store for a shortcut (don’t tell anyone).  While the biscuits are cooking, start the bacon.  The only issue with cooking the bacon first is you have to try to not eat the bacon before finishing the rest of your sandwich.  You should probably make extra.  To make the maple glazed bacon, line a baking sheet with foil. Bake the bacon for 15 minutes on 400 degrees.  Remove the bacon from the oven and turn it over.  Drizzle the maple syrup over the bacon and bake it for another 10 minutes.  I’m getting hungry.

Add more olive oil to the hot skillet.  Crack one egg in the skillet and cook it about a minute or until the egg whites start to set.  Flip the egg and cook it for another minute. Cut the biscuits in half and line with arugula. Layer the egg on top of the arugula, then layer the bacon (cut in half).  Finally, add the cheese and top with the other half of the biscuit.  Voilà.  Breakfast is served!
