The Bigger The Better.

Weekends are a great time to get together with the family. They’re also a great time to get together and experiment a new recipe! This morning, my siblings and I gathered at our parents’ house. We had all decided to cook a family breakfast. But today’s was going to be just a bit different than usual. You know how it goes. The typical list would include pancakes, maybe waffles, eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, toast, and perhaps a few other trimmings. But today, my brother suggested that we try something a bit different. He suggest that we make a breakfast sandwich. Not sandwiches, but just one sandwich. Singular. One… GIANT… sandwich.

We decided that it was just going to be a classic breakfast sandwich. All we were going to add to it was egg, cheese, and bacon. Once that was decided, the rest was just the cooking process.

Unfortunately, I didn’t take many pictures of the start of the process, but I’ll try to describe it as well as possible.

First, we just took a bundt pan, sprayed it with cooking spray, and laid in 2 rolls of Pillsbury French Bread dough in the bottom of the pan and pinched the ends together to create a ring. That goes in to the oven for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Going into the oven with that will be a separate rack of bacon. WEAVED BACON! So what you see below is Before and After the oven process.

I won’t go too far in to the eggs – you’re basically just cooking 12 scrambled eggs all at once. SO NOW COMES THE BEST PART! Well, I mean, aside from eating it all, obviously.

Once your bread has risen, you take it out of the oven and cut your giant bun in half to begin the assembly process.

So just to get a grasp for how big this sandwich is – its the size of the regular bundt pan! If you notice, it takes 4 cheese slices in order to cover the surface space of the sandwich. And these were slices larger than usual. We layered this with cheese, eggs, more cheese, then bacon. Once its assembled such as above, you throw it back in the over for 10 minutes to allow the cheese to melt. Then, you put it all together, slice, and serve!
