Naptime’s B.E.A.L.T. – inspired by fresh bread


  • 1
  • loaf fresh ciabatta
    2 fresh eggs (plan for 1 per sandwich)
  • ripe Haas avocado
    2 ripe tomatoes
    6 strips of uncured bacon (plan for 3 strips per sandwich)
    1 bunch washed arugula

    Salt & Pepper
    Yields 2 sandwiches – just double ingredients for more.


    First, toast four slices of ciabatta and set aside. Then, open the avocado and remove the pit. Gently cut into four slices. With a fork, gently mash two slices onto two of the slices of bread. On both slices of bread cover the avocado with a few leaves of fresh arugula. Cut four fresh slices of tomato and lay two slices on top of each piece of bread with the arugula. On the two remaining slices of bread lay three strips of bacon per bread slice. Top the bacon with a freshly fried egg. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper. Press halves together so that the egg is sandwiched between the tomato and bacon. Enjoy!

    This is barely even a recipe but, trust me, it is so good. Making a sandwich is virtually effortless, but you want to make sure it is done correctly so things don’t go horribly wrong. Feel free to make substitutions with this sandwich if you like, you could try prosciutto instead of bacon, or even add a slice of cheese.

    From start to finish the sandwich preparation took about 15 minutes. You can do most of things quickly and multi-task. Just make sure that you watch the egg carefully, you don’t want it to fry for too long and get tough.

    Naptime Reviews

    I have not yet met a toddler who could fit her mouth around a sandwich. But, the components of this sandwich make for a wonderful dinner. I simply put slices of avocado, tomato, egg and bacon on her tray and she loved her meal.
