This Open Faced BLT Sandwich is topped off with an egg and spicy Harissa for one fantastic bite! It’s a hearty and delicious sandwich that’s great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You decide!



  • 4 slices of bread
  • 6 strips of applewood smoked bacon
  • 4 thick slices of heirloom tomatoes
  • 48 leaves of butter lettuce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 tablespoons harissa
  • 1/4 cup diced green onions


  1. Heat a large cast iron skillet to medium high heat.
  2. Place strips of bacon in the pan. Cook bacon for 4-5 minutes per side so it’s nice and crispy. Remove and place bacon on a paper towel lined plate to let the grease drain.
  3. Toast the bread.
  4. Heat another large skillet to medium high heat.
  5. Place olive oil in the pan. Add eggs to the pan. Cook until desired temperature. (I cook mine for 1 1/2 minutes. Turn the stove off. Cover the eggs and let sit for 1 minute. It’s the perfect over easy egg. 🙂
  6. Assemble sandwich: place toast on plate, top with 1-2 leaves of lettuce, one tomato, 2 strips of bacon, one egg, 2 tablespoons of harissa, and green onions. Devour!
