The Sweet Bread Roll Egg Sandwich

Getting up in the morning for school can sometimes be unmotivating for me. A delicious and easy to make breakfast makes it a little more eventful and gives you something to look forward to. As a family with both sides celebrating Portuguese culture, the sweet bread roll is a staple in my household, especially for breakfast. This recipe is one of my favorites as it incorporates produce from my own backyard. Growing up with chickens and a yard full of garden beds and greenhouses containing fresh leafy greens and other vegetables helped me gain a sense of respect for where our food comes from. This simple breakfast recipe reminds me of that.


Sweet bread roll egg sandwich


  • Sweet bread roll x1
  • Avocado x1
  • Egg x1
  • 2 Bacon strips
  • Butter
  • Salt 
  • Pepper
  • Red pepper flakes


  • Pan x1
  • Spatula
  • Butter Knife x1
  • Serrated Knife x1
  • Toaster
  • Plate                                                           


  1. To have a quick and efficient morning, I suggested cooking the bacon strips the night before.
  2. Place the pan on the stove on low heat, using the butter knife to place a small amount of butter into the pan, the pan is hot enough once the butter sizzles without burning. (Adjust heat as necessary).
  3. Cut the sweet bread roll in half with the serrated knife then toast until lightly browned.
  4. Once the butter and pan is ready, crack the egg on the edge of the pan and pour into the middle.
    1. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Before the egg has fully cooked, cut avocado and spread it on the sweet bread roll.
    1. Sprinkle red pepper flakes over the avocado.
  6. Using the spatula, scrape the egg out of the pan and onto the sweet bread roll. (You will know when the egg is ready if you can move the pan and the egg stands stiff.)
    1. For sunny side up, remove directly from the pan onto the roll, for over easy, quickly flip the egg and let cook for 10-20 seconds before removing.

*Tip* For extra flavor, grill the sweet bread roll in the pan after cooking the egg in the excess butter.
