The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

I feel a bit like Guy Fieri by declaring this to be the Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich, but there is really no way around it. It is the ultimate.

My father-in-law made a giant batch of these over Easter weekend, and we re-created it in the Berkshires with my family. Everyone who has ever tried one becomes a convert!

The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich
Feeds 6 hungry people

You will need:
6 English muffins, crumpets or bagels, sliced and toasted
1 cup whole milk ricotta
1 ripe avocado
1/3 lb capicola (sweet or hot)
1/3 lb sliced provolone cheese
12 slices cooked bacon
Dozen eggs

Pre-heat the oven to 325 F. Combine ricotta and avocado with a fork until creamy and smooth. Spread that mixture onto of your bread base. Break the slices of bacon in half and stack onto top of the avocado mixture. Place a slice of capicola and provolone on top, and repeat adding the avocado mixture, bacon, capicola and provolone. Place all the sandwiches on a cooking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is all melty and fantastic.

While the sandwiches are baking, poach a dozen eggs (use two to three shallow pans so they are all done at the same time). Place a poached egg on top of each sandwich (or not, if you're like me and don't like them - see second picture!). Enjoy your ultimate breakfast sandwich experience!!!


  1. At least you don't look like Guy Fieri ;) Can't wait to try these--maybe this weekend!

    1. Thank goodness for that! I'm not sure anybody (Guy included) can successfully pull off that spiky bleached blond hair!
