Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Line a baking sheet with foil (for easier cleanup) and lay the bacon on it. Sprinkle plenty of freshly ground black pepper over each slice, then roast in the hot oven for 15 minutes, or until crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside on paper towels to drain. Reserve ¼ cup of the bacon fat.

Step 3

Using a sharp or serrated knife, slice the tomato(es) into half-inch slices, reserving the 4 biggest center-cut slices for the sandwiches (save the rest of the tomato for another use). Stir together the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, and zest, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 4

In a heavy cast iron skillet or on a large, flat griddle, heat 2 tablespoons of the reserved bacon fat and season the tomato slices with salt and pepper. Fry them until caramelized on the bottom, then carefully flip and cook the other side (they may fall apart—this is okay!). Remove from the pan and keep warm. Toast the English muffins.

Step 5

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper and add the grated cheese. Melt the butter in a non-stick skillet and pour in the egg and cheese mixture. With a wooden spoon, stir to gently scramble the eggs, and, when cooked through, turn off the heat. The cheesy eggs will set a little bit, making them easier to divide into 4 portions to arrange on the sandwiches.

Step 6

To assemble, spread a little lemon aïoli on both top and bottom of each muffin, then layer on a griddled tomato, 2 slices of bacon (cut in half to fit), some scrambled egg, and a handful of arugula. Close the sandwiches and serve immediately, with 4 napkins per person.

Scaled back for 1 serve and I did cook it differently to the instructions given - I cooked my 2 slices of Canadian style bacon in a small frypan and when they were nearly cooked I added the slice of tomato to cook and then put on kitchen paper the drain and used the small amount of fat from the bacon to scramble the eggs and I used an aioli I already had in the fridge and just added a bit of lemon juice and then I assembled as per recipe but could not get all the egg on so next time it will be a one egg scramble and oh was so glad I had those napkins handy. Thank you ForeverMama made for Only The Lonely tag game at FF&F.
