What’s a Southern breakfast without cheesy grits? Grits, eggs, bacon, cheese, and peppadew peppers are piled onto this Southern-style breakfast sandwich. No need for hot sauce — the heat from the peppers adds plenty of spice for a morning treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 biscuit
  • 1/4 Cup grits, cooked
  • 1 slice of bacon, crispy
  • 1 egg, scrambled or fried
  • 1/4 Cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 Tablespoon peppadew peppers, chopped

4 Napkin Over The Sink Breakfast Sandwich

Line a baking sheet with foil (for easier cleanup) and lay the bacon on it. Sprinkle plenty of freshly ground black pepper over each slice, then roast in the hot oven for 15 minutes, or until crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside on paper towels to drain. Reserve ¼ cup of the bacon fat.

Step 3

Using a sharp or serrated knife, slice the tomato(es) into half-inch slices, reserving the 4 biggest center-cut slices for the sandwiches (save the rest of the tomato for another use). Stir together the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, and zest, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 4

In a heavy cast iron skillet or on a large, flat griddle, heat 2 tablespoons of the reserved bacon fat and season the tomato slices with salt and pepper. Fry them until caramelized on the bottom, then carefully flip and cook the other side (they may fall apart—this is okay!). Remove from the pan and keep warm. Toast the English muffins.

Step 5

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper and add the grated cheese. Melt the butter in a non-stick skillet and pour in the egg and cheese mixture. With a wooden spoon, stir to gently scramble the eggs, and, when cooked through, turn off the heat. The cheesy eggs will set a little bit, making them easier to divide into 4 portions to arrange on the sandwiches.

Step 6

To assemble, spread a little lemon aïoli on both top and bottom of each muffin, then layer on a griddled tomato, 2 slices of bacon (cut in half to fit), some scrambled egg, and a handful of arugula. Close the sandwiches and serve immediately, with 4 napkins per person.
