Meet my favorite breakfast sandwich: a tasty combination of bright chimichurri sauce, creamy avocado, coffee-glazed bacon, and a runny fried egg.<br /><br />It’s May and you know what that means. It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Brunch Week! This year, I’ll be sharing three awesome recipes, starting with my favorite breakfast sandwich! We also have an amazing giveaway, thanks to the generous sponsors that our hosts Terri from Love and Confections and Shaina from Take A Bite Out Of Boca have lined up. You can read more about the giveaway here.<br /><br />Now back to that sandwich – it’s seriously delicious. I’ve been on a South American kick lately and I’ve been putting salsa verde and chimichurri on just about everything. I especially love chimichurri with eggs. It has a bright acidity that pairs really well with rich egg yolks in a similar way that hot sauce (or ketchup, if you’re into that) does. I’ve been playing around with the chimichurri + eggs combination for a few months now, but finally settled on what I think is the perfect sandwich.<br /><br />The ingredient that takes it over the top? Coffee-glazed bacon. Yup; I’ll look for a way to caffeinate just about anything. This bacon is so delicious that I could eat it like candy. It’s slightly bitter from some espresso, but maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness and a generous pinch of cayenne pepper gives it a pop of heat. Baked until it’s super crispy, it’s just about one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. (In my haste to get this sandwich into my belly, I neglected my duty as a food stylist to make sure a piece of the bacon was peeking out from under the avocado. Trust me, it’s there…and it’s gorgeous.)<br /><br />This sandwich takes a little bit of effort to prepare, plus it’s pretty hearty (with bacon, egg, and avocado) so it’s best served for brunch or as breakfast-for-dinner. We had it with hash browns (culinary school homework and excuse to practice my new party trick, tossing ingredients around in the pan without spilling them all over the place) and a tropical fruit salad I’ll share more about later this week.<br /><br />More delicious recipes from #BrunchWeek bloggers:<br /><br />BrunchWeek Beverages: Blueberry Sangria from Love and Confections.<br /><br />BrunchWeek Egg Dishes: Caramelized Onion, Swiss Chard, Mushroom and Alpine Cheddar Croissant Strata from Taste Cook Sip.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
