My favorite meal of the day to make AND eat is definitely breakfast! I don’t know what about it makes it so good but I’m a sucker for some eggs or French toast any day, any time. Breakfast for dinner – sign me up! The one recipe that I always go back to every week is these breakfast sandwiches. My husband always requests them and I always crave them. I’ve always turned them into sliders and they were a huge hit too.
There are basically four different components to making these sliders. Let’s get into each step now!
THE CHIPOTLE AIOLI
Every good sandwich needs an even better sauce, it’s just the rules. My favorite go-to sauce is chipotle aioli. I always make a fresh batch and keep it stocked in my fridge. It tastes so good in rice bowls, tacos, sandwiches and so much more!
This chipotle aioli is smoky, a bit spicy, and has a nice tang that adds so much flavor.
In a small bowl, just combine all these ingredients and mix together:
- sour cream
- adobo paste in chipotle peppers
- lime juice
- chili powder
- black pepper
You can buy a can of chipotle peppers in adobo paste from most major supermarkets in the international food aisle. I only use the adobo paste in the can for this recipe but if you would like it to be spicy, you can add 1 to 3 of the chipotle peppers to a blender and then add it to the sauce. I just like to add some sriracha instead for a bit of a spicy kick.
Can I Buy Chipotle Aioli From the Store?
Instead of making it from scratch, just buy chipotle aioli pre-made from the store. Another option is to just replace it with your favorite sauce or make sriracha mayo which is just sriracha, mayo, and a bit of lemon juice.
Moving on to the bread! You can really use any type of bread you like for a breakfast sandwich. Here are some classic options to pick from.
- sourdough bread
- white or wheat toast
- english muffin
- brioche buns
I chose to use brioche buns because that is just my favorite. It is so soft and fluffy and it has an incredibly buttery taste. Just spread some butter or mayo on each bun and toast them on a pan or skillet over medium heat until golden and crispy on the edges and that’s it for the bread. If you choose to use an english muffin or bagel, just use a toaster to get it crisped up instead.
THE BEEF BACON
Now it’s time to cook the bacon. I use beef bacon but you can use turkey too. Add bacon to a hot pan over medium heat. Allow it to fry on one side until beautifully golden and crispy and then flip it over. Add a small sprinkle of brown sugar if you’d like at this step and continue to cook. It makes a huge difference in the taste and it’s the only way I make bacon. Once crispy and fully cooked, take off the pan.
MAKING THE EGGS
To a non-stick pan over medium heat, add oil or a little bit of butter. Crack the eggs in and allow it to cook low and slow.
Break apart the yolks and slowly move the eggs around to make them scrambled but super fluffy. Optional, I love adding a bit of cheddar cheese to melt into the scrambled eggs! You can do this instead of adding cheese directly into the sandwich.
Add salt and black pepper to taste and once the eggs are fully cooked to the way you like them, take off the pan.
Once the eggs, bacon, and sauce are all prepped, it’s time to assemble! To the bottom bun, add the chipotle aioli, then the eggs, a slice of cheese, bacon, avocado if you like, and finish it off with the top bun. Feel free to add whatever cheese you like but my go-to is the classic American cheese.
