The Ultimate BLT with homemade hashbrown – this is breakfast and lunch in one meal!

The Ultimate BLT with homemade hashbrown - this is breakfast and lunch in one meal!

I know ther’s more to life than sandwiches. But right now, I’m finding it hard to get my mind off the subject.

I made this BLT a couple of weeks ago when some friends came round the other day,  I meant to take a few photos of it there and then for the blog, but it accidentally got eaten (ahem).

So I made it the next day, along with the genius idea of making a backup BLT in case of BLT related emergencies.

Because BLT related emergencies happen in my world.

The Ultimate BLT with homemade hashbrown - this is breakfast and lunch in one meal!

Best decision ever.

But I haven’t made it since, and looking at the pictures again is making me rather sad that I’ve already had soup for lunch.

This Ultimate BLT with Homemade Hashbrown has Layers of bacon, lettuce, tomato, cheese, three pieces of toast, a perfectly dippy fried egg and crispy golden homemade hashbrown.

  • Start by making the hash brown. Heat the oil and butter in a small frying pan, then mix together the grated potato and onion. Squeeze any excess liquid out of the potato and onion using your hands. Pat the mixture with kitchen towels, then toss with the salt and pepper. Form into a thin patty and fry in the oil for 5 minutes. Turn over and fry for 5 more minutes until browned, then place in the oven on very low to keep warm.
  • Butter the bread on both sides using all of the butter.
  • Heat up a griddle plate and place the bread on the griddle. Cook on one side until the bread is toasted and griddle lines appear. Turn the bread over and sprinkle the cheese on one of the slices. Continue to cook until the bread is toasted on both sides and the cheese is melted (you can place the toast slice with cheese under the grill for a minute if it doesn’t melt enough). Once cooked, put to one side.
  • Place the bacon on one side of the griddle and cook for 1 minute, then pour the oil onto the other side of the griddle. Allow the oil to heat, then crack the egg on the griddle. Turn the bacon over, and cook until the bacon is crisp and the egg is cooked (but the yolk is still runny) – about 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  • Assemble the BLT by placing the toast slice with cheese on the bottom. Top with the sliced tomato, 2 slices of bacon, some ketchup and another slice of toast. Top with the lettuce, hashbrown, the rest of the bacon, the fried egg and the third piece of toasted bread. Season with salt and pepper and serve with more ketchup.

      My hubby loves hasbrowns too. Can’t get him to eat the egg, but he’ll happily have double hashbrown instead!
