Fried Egg BLT Sandwich recipe. Layers of Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato topped with a fried egg with a runny yolk and smoked paprika mayo.
A BLT sandwich is a sandwich with Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato. We added a fried egg for the perfect breakfast BLT.
If you grow your tomatoes you know there will be plenty of BLTs in your future. We have 7 tomato plants in the garden this year so we have BLTs pretty often. We also grow our own lettuce and buy eggs from a local farm and you can get my homemade bread recipe. This sandwich is good and so fresh. During tomato season our Fried Egg BLT is a weekly menu item for breakfast or dinner.
Breakfast BLT Ingredients
You can have this BLT with egg for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The Fried Egg BLT works for any meal any time of day. The easy 3 ingredient sandwich gets an upgrade with an egg and a smoky paprika aioli.
You could use regular mayo but you should take it one step further and add some smoked paprika to add more flavor. The smoked paprika mayo works so well with the egg and bacon. The flavor will stand out and won’t get lost like plain mayo would in this sandwich.
What Goes with a BLT
If you are making this BLT with egg sandwich try these sides to complete your meal.
There is nothing more satisfying than cutting into a fried egg and watching the yolk run down the rest of your food or plate. That river of golden yolk makes this Fried Egg BLT so deliciously messy. It covers the sandwich and is so yummy. If any yolk spills onto the plate be sure and take your sandwich and mop that flavor up. The lightly toasted bread soaks up the yolk in every bite. You don’t want to lose an ounce of that golden yolk goodness.
- Use regular Mayo instead of Smoked Paprika Mayo.
- Make with or without Fried Egg.
- Fry up some green tomatoes for a Fried Green Tomato BLT.
- Instead of Mayo spread on mashed avocado.
- You can also add cheese like a sharp cheddar to add more flavor if serving this for dinner.
This sandwich is just as good without the egg. If you choose to leave out the egg I highly recommend NOT skipping the smoked paprika mayo.
