Open Faced Bacon and Egg Sandwiches on Rye

Using eggs for dinner is really economical and since we have chickens and always have extra eggs, finding ways to use them for dinner is a fun challenge. These open faced bacon and egg sandwiches are super fast and easy, and SO good.

You could use egg salad or fried eggs here too, but I liked scrambled for this sandwich. I toasted some slices of rye bread in a hot skillet with a little garlic olive oil for extra flavor. I used my oven method to cook the bacon, then chopped it. I used a simple mix of a little mayo, some dijon and little salt and spread that on the bread, then topped it with the scrambled eggs and bacon. Chopped scallions added a nice burst of flavor and freshness. My family loved these and they were one of the easiest dinners I have made lately.

I cook my scrambled eggs by whisking the eggs with a little salt, pepper and a splash or milk or water to help fluff them up. How do you cook yours? Hope you enjoy this sandwich.
