Bacon & Egg Special Sandwich

Am I tired today!

Roy and I went shopping ... we are giving our kitchen an small make-over, and after that we will finish the laundry/scullery which is next to the kitchen - more part of the kitchen as one sort of look down from the kitchen into the scullery/laundry.

We had to choose today {National Women's Day - therefore, public holiday} of all days. Seems every second person in Gauteng wanted to do some work in or around their homes - Builders Warehouse was PACKED and the store keep on changing it's aisle locations. Don't you just hate it when you walk towards, where you last found something, only to find it's been moved right to the other side of the store?

Anyhow, first I couldn't decide on the wall tiles ... finally found some I liked. We then looked at cabinet handles {we're keeping the old cabinets - just giving it a bit of a face-lift}. No,... once again, I didn't find anything I liked, but I still like my old ones - - but not the color! So, this evening  I have black hands and nails because I decided to spray-paint the old handles!

A complete post will follow as soon as it's finished {at least the kitchen side}.

The recipe I'm sharing today is great for a quick light dinner. 

Bacon & Egg Special Sandwich (makes 9 sandwiches)

adapted by me from the cookbook WELGEDAAN  by Annette Human

250g Mushrooms, sliced
1 Large Onion, chopped
2 t Garlic, crushed
1/2 TB Curry Powder
1/2 t Turmeric
3 TB Oil
1 can (410g) Chopped Tomatoes
1 TB Sugar
1/2 t Salt
Pinch Freshly ground Black pepper

18 slices Bread {I used white), toasted one side, buttered other side
250g Bacon Bits
10 Eggs
100ml Milk
1 t Salt
Pepper, to taste
Cheese (optional)

1.) Saute the Mushrooms, Onion, Garlic, Curry Powder and Turmeric in the Oil until soft - Add the Tomatoes, Sugar, Salt and Black Pepper to taste - simmer 10 minutes until sauce has thickened.
2.) Meanwhile, fry the Bacon until cooked - Remove from pan and keep aside.
3.) Beat the Eggs, Milk, Salt and Pepper together - add a little Butter to the same pan which the Bacon was  cooked in - Add the beaten Egg mixture and stir-fry until cooked - place the Bacon back in with the Eggs and heat through.

To serve: Place a slice of bread (buttered side up) on a plate - add some Bacon and Egg mixture on top (and cheese if using) followed by another slice of bread (toasted side up). Spoon some of the Mushroom sauce over and serve immediately!

Ciao for now,

Linking up with these cool parties:


  1. What an interesting sandwich! Love the curry flavours you've added!

    1. Thank you for the visit to my blog! I'll be sure to check out your Beef Burgers {I'm a big Bacon fan}

  2. Looks good. Thanks for sharing at the All Star Block Party.


  3. Sounds delicious - love the combination of seasonings. And YES, I do hate it when stores rearrange everything -- especially when I am in a hurry to pick up something and get the project underway. You have my sympathy :-) Thanks for sharing on Busy Monday.

  4. We recently did a complete kitchen remodel ... that's still sort of in the process. It's mostly done, just a few odds and ends left. I have learned I really don't have the patience for such things. LOL. A girl needs her kitchen, ya know?! This sounds like another great recipe, Linda! Thank you for sharing at All my Bloggy Friends this week! I hope to see you again Tuesday! :)
