Fried Egg BLT Sandwich recipe. Layers of Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato topped with a fried egg with a runny yolk and smoked paprika mayo.
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, buy eggs from a local farm and you can get my homemade bread recipe here. This sandwich is good and so fresh. During tomato season our Fried Egg BLT is a weekly menu item.
If a BLT has a fried egg does it make it breakfast?
You can have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The Fried Egg BLT works for any meal any time of day.
You can also add cheese like a sharp cheddar to add more flavor and substance if serving this for dinner.
Smoked Paprika Mayo for BLT
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.
There is nothing more satisfying than cutting into a fried egg and watching the yolk run down the rest of your food or plate. Mmmm food bliss. That river of golden yolk makes this Fried Egg BLT so deliciously messy. It covers the sandwich and is so yum. Any yolk that 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.
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.
