Best ever breakfast sandwich

It occurred to me the other weekend, as I hoovered down the best breakfast sandwich in the world, that I have been making these things for three years, and only once blogged about it, in passing. I don't think there is anything else I make this regularly, with so little variation, and that is because this is simple perfection.

This sandwich is a vegan's nightmare, but strangely (for me) contains no bacon. Seriously, this is sheer perfection that needs no pork products.

The combination of toasted brioche, chilli relish, cheese and a fried egg forms a mystical union far greater than the sum of its parts. Creamy, sweet, salty, sharp, hot and pungent in perfect balance. It's so good that it is genuinely worth making the chilli relish while you have your first cup of coffee so that you can have your sandwich with the second cup.
It's British Sandwich Week (I didn't know there was such a thing, and it is more aimed at the commercial seller of sandwiches), but this is a year-round delight.
SouperSundays And it's another one for Deb's Souper (Soups, salads and sammies) Sunday.

I often eat this for dinner! Sometimes cheese if I have some. Simple, delicious!

This is just a gorgeous sandwich--I love the pairing of the egg with the chilli relish and cheese.

I would happily enjoy this for breakfast or any time of day. Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

Oh, for the love of all things holy, roll on Saturday morning so that I can have this for breakfast. On second thoughts, it might be dinner one night if I can't wait till then!!

Toasted brioche and sunny side up...I wouldn't miss bacon at all. This is indeed a perfect sandwich!
