Bacon and Egg Sub for Any Time of Day
Some busy days, all I want to cook is something comforting and simple for supper like this bacon egg and cheese sub topped with spinach and Roma tomatoes. To me, this sub is one of those “anytime of day” sandwiches that can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. There’s plenty of room to vary the ingredients to suit your taste, and get creative with the ingredients you have on hand. Eggs are not only a great source of protein but, they’re terrific for keeping grocery costs to a minimum. This meal can be prepared and on the table in less than 20 minutes.
