Weekends were made for breakfast sandwiches in my house. Sometimes it’s with traditional sourdough bread, English muffins and even bagels. Heck, just last weekend I fixed an egg, jalapeno and cheese sandwich on a blueberry bagel for Paul. He said it was delicious!
This weekend I happened to have Naan in the house. You know what that is? It’s a fabulous Indian flat bread. If you haven’t had it before, you must try it. We love it. So, for breakfast guess what we had… Yep a breakfast sandwich on Naan bread.
Here’s how I made it.
Naan Breakfast Sandwich
This is the Naan Bread. It’s an oven baked flatbread that is popular in the Indian restaurants. It reminds me of Pita, but has it’s own unique flavor and shape. I toasted it in the toaster oven to warm and crisp it up a bit. Then cut it in half in preparation for the sandwich to come.
In a small bowl, beat a couple of eggs with about 1 teaspoon of water.
On low heat, pour the beaten eggs into a small skillet sprayed with cooking oil.
I tend to cook my eggs on low heat because it prevents them from turning brown and scorching. Never have liked that.
I added chopped jalapenos, our fav, that were seeded to remove most of the heat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Get creative and add your favorite ingredients. How about, red bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, fresh spinach or even chopped olives! Here is where you make it your own! After all, you’re the one eating this.
Once I get the peppers and seasonings in the eggs, I move the edges to shape the eggs to about the size of the Naan. Just eyeball it… Let it cook a few minutes here.
Flip the eggs and add your favorite cheese and let it continue to cook until it’s cooked through, a couple minutes. Here I did Swiss. You can use Mozzarella, Monterrey Jack, Cheddar, Provolone or even pepper jack! Put a little spice into your life!
Then I just lay in on one side of the Naan bread and top it with bacon. I have also made this with ham, oh so goooood.
For me, I like a little mayo on the top half of the Naan and maybe a couple slices of tomato, but not for Paul. This right here is how he likes it.
