Steak & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich for World Egg Day – toasted crusty bread, topped with cheddar cheese, tomato guacamole, sliced steak, two eggs and a bacon chipotle aioli. A mouth watering “breakfast for dinner” idea or an outstanding weekend brunch.
Here’s an amazing Steak & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich recipe in celebration of World Egg Day!
Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that we go through a lot of eggs at our house; not only in baking but in terrific brunch dishes and a family favourite meal idea, making a big hearty breakfast to serve for dinner. I don’t know of many foods that are both as versatile and nutritious as eggs. We love our eggs so much that I was very pleased to be able to help Egg Farmers of Canada promote World Egg Day which is today! Established by the International Egg Commission in 1996, World Egg Day is celebrated around the world on the second Friday in October each year.
Canadian egg farmers do work very hard to produce high-quality eggs, but many folks are not aware that they also are active in giving back to their communities by volunteering, fundraising and donating eggs. Both Nationally and internationally Canadian egg farmers support close to 200 community programs, causes, charities and events. Incredibly they donate three million eggs each year to community food banks, school breakfast programs and charitable organization. Their international partnerships help make a difference in vulnerable peoples lives, like their partnership with Heart for Africa, where 74,000 hand-packed meals are delivered each month (or 888,000 meals a year) to families in rural Swaziland.
As I mentioned, today is World Egg Day, a celebration of the humble egg, it’s high nutritional value and the hard working folks who produce them. Eggs are one of the most nutritious and affordable protein-rich food items you can buy. They contain six grams of the highest quality protein and 14 important nutrients such as vitamins A, D and E, folate and iron.

This recipe is a terrific example of how to use eggs as “breakfast for dinner” as our family often does or for a rewarding weekend brunch any time. You can even use leftover steak from a barbecue the day before, simply slicing it as thinly as possible and tossing it in a hot non-stick pan for just a minute.
- 4 slices thick of crusty bread toasted
- 4 slices sandwich sized of cheddar cheese
- 1 pound grilled steak sliced as thinly as possible
- 8 eggs (poached fried over easy or scrambled)
- 1 large ripe avocado
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp finely chopped lemon zest
- juice of 1/2 small lemon
- 1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
- 4 tbsp hot sauce optional or to taste
- 1/4 tsp sea salt or to taste
- 1 medium sized tomato deseeded and diced small
- 4 slices of crisp cooked bacon
- 1/2 cup plain mayonnaise
- 1 clove garlic very finely minced
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1/4 tsp to 1/2 chipotle powder or hot paprika
Lightly toast the crusty bread and lay the cheddar cheese on top followed by the steak, eggs and bacon aioli.
Crush the avocado roughly in a mortar and pestle or just with a fork.
In a glass bowl, add the remaining ingredients and combine well.
Store in a glass bowl with plastic wrap touching the surface of the guacamole to preserve the colour.
Chop the crisp bacon into bacon bits.
Mix all of the ingredients together and let sit while you prepare the rest of the sandwich.
