Breakfast BLT’s

Breakfast BLT’s is a toasted English muffin topped with peppery arugula, oven-roasted tomato and finished off with a fried egg and chopped, fresh parsley.

It’s no secret.

I, Laurie, am a BLT fuh-reak.

We make BLT’s on the regular in our house. Open face, with turkey or sandwiched between toasted bread, a little mayo, crispy lettuce, garden tomatoes, a little onion, white cheddar and of course. And always thick cut slices of applewood slab bacon. So why in the heck didn’t I think of making BLT’s for breakfast?

Lucky for us, somebody did.

So I’m pretty sure you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Riley’s (My Daily Morsel — which is no longer available) recipe for breakfast BLT’s. I was like, “oh heck yes!”.

Her breakfast BLT’s don’t call for crazy ingredients and are simply… a toasted English muffin topped with peppery arugula, oven-roasted tomato <—this is where it’s all at! Then finished off with a fried egg and chopped, fresh parsley.

The oven-roasted tomatoes are surprisingly the show stopper of this hearty rustic breakfast. Simply drizzle Roma tomato halves with olive oil, salt and pepper and a few fresh thyme leaves before pushing them into the oven to roast. The smell alone makes me want to eat them plain. So, so good.

    I just had a BLT about a week ago and thought, “Gee, this would be great with a poached egg on it!” I might have to make this for the wife tomorrow.

    Yeah, I like the BLT’s for breakfast. Especially, I like to eat the toasted English muffin and fried egg with liquid egg yolk. Thanks for this delicious post.

    Gosh, having roast tomatoes and eggs on BLT for breakfast is kind of luxury for me. I just don’t have the time to prepare much in the morning. I only have to time to eat oatmeal.
