Breakfast Sandwich on a white plate

Savory, indulgent and topped with oven-baked strawberry glazed bacon, this is no ordinary breakfast sandwich.

As a mom who never turns down brie, bacon or runny-yolk eggs, this is exactly what I’d like to see on my Mother’s Day breakfast menu. I’d also like to wake up to something other than my kiddos singing the soundtrack to Trolls at top volume at 6:30am. But that can’t be helped.

The breakfast situation though….

The strawberry glaze on those bacon slices make them a great match for peppery arugula and creamy brie. Those flavors are often paired in a spring salad. But let’s be real. No salad can hold a candle to a sandwich topped with a runny-yolk fried egg.

Strawberry Glazed Bacon

The real star of this breakfast sandwich, though, is the bacon. (Isn’t bacon always the star?)

This is no ordinary bacon. It’s baked in the oven which has oh-so-many advantages to frying it in a pan. For starters, oven baking means you can make a bunch at one time. But the real reason to make bacon in the oven? So much less mess. No splatter-y stove top to scrub.

Plus bacon in the oven can be coated in sweet and peppery strawberry glaze.

Just strawberry preserves, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and a bit of black pepper. Brushed on the bacon a few minutes before it finishes cooking, it turns into a thick glaze.

You’re going to want extra.

With that bacon cooking in the oven, the rest of these sandwiches are super simple.

Egg, Brie and Arugula Breakfast Sandwich with Strawberry Glazed Bacon

Savory, indulgent and topped with oven-baked strawberry glazed bacon, this is no ordinary breakfast sandwich.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes
Servings: 2 servings


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Half Sheet Pan
  • Wire Rack
  • Skillet


Strawberry Glazed Bacon:

  • 8 slices Bacon
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp Strawberry Preserves

Egg, Brie and Arugula Breakfast Sandwich:

  • 2 Sandwich Rolls
  • 2 oz Brie
  • 2 oz Arugula
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Cooking Oil (I like grape seed oil)
  • 2 Eggs


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Make glaze by whisking together black pepper, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and preserves.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil. Top with an oven-safe cooling rack and spread bacon out on rack. Transfer bacon to oven and bake until nearly crisp, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • When bacon is nearly finished, remove from oven and brush with glaze. Return to oven and continue baking until crisp and caramelized, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  • While bacon finishes, slice sandwich rolls in half. Place rolls, cut-side up on a second sheet pan. Spread one side of each roll with brie and toast in the oven until brie is melted and roll is golden brown.
  • Toss arugula with olive oil and season with some salt and black pepper.
  • Heat cooking oil in a skillet. Crack eggs into heated oil and fry until cooked to your liking (I like them sunny-side up).
  • Assemble sandwiches by topping the melted brie side of the sandwich roll with bacon, arugula and a fried egg.
