All your breakfast favorites – crisp applewood smoked bacon, hash browns and a fresh egg – are topped with melted Tillamook Medium Cheddar and sandwiched between two slices of grilled sourdough.
"This is a melt that I love for breakfast. The addition of the “toad in the hole” is great as you can dip one half in it if you love your eggs cooked over medium. It takes most of my favorite breakfast items and melts them all together in one wonderful sandwich. You can play with the ingredients and add your favorite breakfast items like turkey apple sausage or roasted peppers. Something new for the kids, too!" – Dave Danhi of The Grilled Cheese Truck
¾ cup (6 oz) Tillamook® Unsalted Butter at room temperature
¾ cup (6 oz) mayonnaise
8 slices Tillamook® Medium Cheddar Cheese
4 portions hash browns (or tater tots!), cooked crispy
8 slices sourdough bread (thick ½ inch slices)
16 slices Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon, cooked crispy and cut in half
4 whole medium eggs
In a mixer, beat butter and mayonnaise with the paddle attachment until well mixed. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate all butter as it may stick to the bowl.
Assembly of Sandwiches
Generously butter each slice of bread on one side and lay buttered side down. Add (in this order): 1 slice Medium Cheddar Cheese, 1 portion of hash browns (if tater tots are being used, be sure to crush them with the side of a knife first so the sandwich isn't too thick), 2 slices of bacon cut in half and laid side by side, 1 slice of Medium Cheddar Cheese, and top it off with 1 slice buttered sourdough bread buttered side out. Cut a hole in the corner of each sandwich with a biscuit cutter about 1½ inches in diameter.
Heat griddle to about 350°F. Place all sandwiches on griddle. Crack one egg into each hole. Allow Melts to cook SLOWLY. If your heat is too high it will burn the bread, the egg wont cook, and the inside will not be hot. Once golden brown, gently flip and repeat until cheese is melted and hot and the egg is cooked to your liking. If the bread browns prior to the inside being hot, place pan with sandwiches in oven at 450°F to allow to finish.
