Is there anything better than getting up on the weekend to the smell of something delicious cooking in the kitchen? I wouldn’t know since I am always the one doing the cooking…but I hear it is really an awesome feeling! Anyway, one of my guy’s favorites is the breakfast sandwich. You know, a big, hearty sandwich you can really wrap your  hands around and then carry in front of the TV and then spend all morning watching ESPN.

One of the best things about this sandwich, besides the hot eggs and gooey cheese, is the smokey sauce running down the sides. For the smoke flavor, I buy Smoked Paprika online, but you might be able to find it at your grocery store.( mine doesn’t carry it). And, to save time, the sauce can be made a few days in advance and stored in the fridge. But be sure to hide it in the back, because once it is discovered there might not be any left for breakfast. Trust me about this, I know!

How To Make This Recipe

To start, I usually make a double batch to keep the hubby happy since Matthew has become addicted to this sauce. Let’s be real….without the sauce it’s just an egg sandwich. It’s the sauce that makes this sandwich special.

  1. Anyway, take the scallions (green onions if you’re not fancy!) and slice them thin, separating the white  and the green parts. In a large skillet heat the olive oil. Throw in the white part of the scallions and the garlic. Stir this around and then cover and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes, until tender.
  2. Add the smoked paprika and stir around for about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper to taste and then bring to a simmer. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring around now and then until the tomatoes are soft and the mixture looks “saucy”.
  3. Add the scallion green parts and cook those until tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let cool to room temperature. Go ahead, get a spoon and taste the sauce.
  4. Now, make the sandwiches. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil then add the butter to melt.
  5. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a fork and add them to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook over medium-low heat until they start to harden. Cook until the eggs are just set.
  6. Place 1 slice of cheese on the bottom of each English muffin. Top each piece of cheese with a good dollop of the sauce (or more), then divide up 1/2 of the eggs among the muffins. Repeat with the remaining cheese, sauce and eggs. Close the sandwich and serve with any remaining sauce.
