According to Urban dictionary, the first 3 definitions of the word “Bae” are: 1. Before anyone else, 2. a Danish word for poop, and 3. baby, boo, or sweetie. Definitions 1 and 3 come closest to how my friends and I use the term, although definition 2 may come in handy when I study abroad in Denmark for the next 4 months (!!!). I have just coined another abbreviation for “bae” with a similar endearing connotation….Bacon Avocado and Egg sandwich aka BAE sandwich.
I can never get enough of my favorite Avocado and Egg Toast but this time I brought it up a couple levels by adding some chipotle powder, BACON, and another slice of bread. Too good. As always, the best part is when the yolk runs and serves as a natural sauce. Warning: it can get messy as you can see from the pictures. The chipotle powder gives the sandwich an extra kick and is highly recommended.
The preparation for this simple sandwich is approximately 10 minutes. It would probably fit best in the big breakfast/brunch category although I had it for lunch and would happily eat it for dinner too. This BAE sandwich is a must-try and you will see that it truly does go “before anyone else.”
BACON AVOCADO AND EGG (BAE) SANDWICH
2 slices bread (I used whole wheat)
1/2 avocado, ripe
1 tablespoon lime juice
salt and pepper
2 strips bacon, crispy
2 teaspoons chipotle powder
Toast 2 slices of bread in a toaster (or on a pan with olive oil).
Scoop the meat of 1/2 avocado into a small bowl and mash. Add lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
In a skillet or toaster oven, cook bacon until crispy. Use a paper towel to soak up excess grease.
In another skillet (or the same one), fry an egg.
Assembly: Spread the mashed avocado on one slice of bread. Sprinkle the chipotle powder over the avocado. Put fried egg on top. Then add bacon strips. Lastly, add other slice of bread on top.
Cut in half diagonally and devour.
