Open Face BTC Sandwich #SundaySupper

Hello, hello and Happy Sunday to you Mates!

Today is a fun edition of #SundaySupper!  Today’s mission is to make breakfast for dinner.  Oh, I love breakfast and I can have it anytime of the day, but unfortunately my family doesn’t feel the same way!  And to boot, they rarely ever eat breakfast!  Me, I LOVE breakfast!  It’s so fun and so versatile.  You can go from sweet treats like Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes to savory egg dishes and hash browns.  Mmmmm, yum!!!   Want to make me happy?  Make me breakfast anytime!  So what breakfast for dinner dish do I have?  I debated, on what to make, but for some odd reason, I was wanting an egg sandwich.  That is something I rarely ever have, so today I made an Open Face BTC Sandwich for you.

Open Face BTC Sandwich

So what does BTC stand for?  Bacon, tomato and cheese.  I have had a major salt craving and I needed some bacon in my life to settle my cravings.  I use Oscar Meyers Center Cut Bacon and it’s only 70 calories for three slices.  It’s crispy, salty and cooks pretty quickly!  Yes, this is the bacon for me!  I don’t feel guilty having it either which is even better!  I normally never eat bacon, because most slices are 90 calories a slice and it’s hard to eat just one slice, so I do without.  My Husband on the other hand, normally eats a pound of it in a sitting if we do have breakfast.  That’s a little too much for me, blah!!

The sandwich is pretty easy to make too!  I cook my bacon ahead of time in batches so I can just grab it from the fridge when I need it.  I used egg whites and cooked them omelet style, but anyway you like your eggs will work well on it.  For some reason I’m not into whole eggs anymore.  I have gone so long using egg whites that I don’t care for regular eggs, except deviled eggs.  Weird how that happens?

I topped my eggs with the most delicious tomatoes that I got from the Farmers Market.  When I went to the Farmers Market I was smelling the tomatoes and my Husband is like what are you doing?  I like the smell of tomatoes and I buy the ones that have a nice strong smell, that way I know they are freshly picked, well at least I think they are.  The I added a fresh basil leaf and mozzarella cheese.  It’s my version of an egg caprese sandwich.  I baked my sandwich in the broiler, just until the cheese melted all over.  Oh man, is this sandwich good!!!  Good I tell ya!!

For the bread I used Udi’s Gluten Free Sandwich Bread, which was the first time I ever had it.  It’s really good, I couldn’t tell it was gluten-free.   The bread was also a perfect size for me too!  You could totally put this sandwich together and make one fat sandwich, but I like it opened face, it’s easier to grab and eat.  You don’t even need a fork and knife.  I had this sandwich a couple of times this week for dinner.  It’s savory from the basil, fresh tasting from the tomatoes and the saltiness from the bacon was perfect and for some reason combining bacon and eggs together makes a magical combination.

Nutrition Information
  • Serves: 1 Sandiwch
  • Serving size: The Whole Recipe
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
A simple, gluten free sandwich made with crispy bacon, egg whites, fresh tomatoes and melted mozzarella cheese.
  • 2 slices white sandwich bread (I used Udi's Gluten Free, 70 calorie per slice)
  • 2 slices bacon (I used Oscar Meyer Center Cut)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp. milk, non-fat
  • 2 tomato slices
  • 1 large leaf or two small leaves of fresh basil, divided
  • ½ oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • pepper to taste
  1. Cook bacon according to manufactures directions; set aside.
  2. In a bowl, add egg whites and milk; mix until combined. In a skillet add cooking spray and egg white mixture. Let the eggs cook for a few minutes, with a spatula life the side of the eggs so the eggs can run off the egg into the pan. Once lightly brown on the bottom, you can flip the egg or gently fold over the egg and cook until the egg is no longer runny.
  3. On two pieces of bread; add one slice of bacon onto each slice of bread. Divide the egg in half, and top the egg onto each slice of bacon. Add a sprinkle of pepper onto egg. Top eggs with the basil, top the basil with a slice of tomato and evenly divide the cheese onto each sandwich slice.
  4. Add the two slices to a baking sheet and place in a broiler and bake until cheese is melted. About 1 to 2 minutes. Watch to make sure you don't burn it!
  5. Note: If you have soft bread, I recommend toasting it first.

  3. Wow. Just, WOW! That looks so flipping delicious!

  4. Ooh, boy. Besides breakfast and dinner, I’d eat this for lunch, too! SO yummy, Jen!!!

  5. Ohhhhh yes, I need that cheesy delicious mess in my life!

  6. I grew up with family neighbores who would only make open faced sandwiches. no idea why but if my mum wouldn’t have been french and made closed sandwiches, I would have lived with the believe that sandwiches are suppose to be open. ^.^
    Love your BLT!

  7. Yummmmm!

  8. I used to be a breakfast hater too! In fact, when we go to Dennys at any hour I tend to get a veggie burger out of habit even though I do like other breakfast items now. This is a great inbetween dish, my husband would drool for this!

  9. I love fast and simple dinner options like this. You can’t go wrong with this combo!

  10. My mom actually just had one of these (with prosciutto though, not bacon) for lunch! It’s one of those go-to summer faves here

  11. I love a tomato and cheese sandwich for lunch – this looks fun for breakfast!

  12. Funny…until yesterday, I’ve been craving a grilled cheese sandwich. On a whim I had a grilled brie sandwich (and this is after many years of not having a grilled cheese sandwich). Your sandwich looks amazing to me!

  13. Yum, I am all over this sandwich!

  14. Jennifer, this looks SO good. A caprese egg sandwich! I just picked up some awesome homegrown tomatoes (and a basil plant) today, and I’m going to try this sandwich this week!

  15. Jennifer this is mind-blowingly brilliant. I love everything about your incredible open faced sammies – the bacon (duh!), the egg white, the cheese, the basil and fresh tomatoes. Deeeeeelish!

  16. I am loving everything about this sandwich. This would be perfect for a breakfast for dinner. Quick and easy… which is my kind of weekday meal!

  17. Mmmmm – BTC! Now that is a combo I can get on board with!
