  • 2 sliced sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 2 large eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese
  • 2 strips thick cut bacon (cooked)


  • Butter the exterior of sourdough bread with 1 tablespoon of butter (½ tbsp for each slice) and toast the bread, buttered side down, in a skillet set over medium heat until the exterior is golden brown.
  • Melt remaining tablespoon of butter in a separate skillet set over medium heat and add two cracked eggs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and let cook for two minutes, or until the bottom of the eggs are firm. Gently flip the eggs and cook for an additional minute. Add a slice of cheese to the top of eggs after flipping so it begins to melt.*
  • Remove eggs from skillet, place on top of a sourdough slice, top with bacon, and add the remaining slice of sourdough on top (along with any condiment you desire), ensuring the buttered side of the bread slices are on the exterior.


*Instead of cooking the eggs in butter, you can use rendered bacon grease for added flavor.
