Breakfast Bruschetta Recipe


A crispy English muffin topped with a tomato/spinach bruschetta, scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese. The Breakfast Bruschetta is super flavourful and so simple to make, and allows you to gear up to celebrate National Bacon Day in the tastiest of ways!

Bacon Day was started in 2000 by a group of students from Bedford, Massachusetts, USA. They decided that bacon was so delicious, that it deserved its own holiday. The students soon organised the first celebration of Bacon Day, and started a blog to promote the holiday. In just a couple of years event had become very popular across the United States where it is not unusual for participants of annual celebration enjoy bacon for breakfast, lunch and dinner that day, and it has now also gone onto the International level.

This year National Bacon Day is September 3rd


And just in case you thought this recipe and indeed the whole day excludes vegetarians then think again, as soy bacon can easily be adapted into the recipe. OK lets get on with it…

Breakfast Bruschetta Recipe

Prep time 10 mins / Cook time 10 mins / Total time 20 mins

Serves: 3


* 3 whole English Muffins, split
* 2 c. fresh Spinach, cleaned
* 1 small tomato, diced
* ⅓ c. fresh Sweet Red Pepper, diced
* 4 Green Onions, chopped
* 1 clove of Garlic, minced
* 2-3 slices of bacon, crispy fried
* 3 eggs, scrambled
* 1 Tablespoon EVOO, (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
* 1 c shredded Mozzarella cheese or any white cheese
* Salt and freshly ground Pepper
* Sweet Hungarian Paprika
* Fresh basil chiffonade



1. Break up the Crispy Bacon into ½" pieces
2. In a skillet heat the oil. Add spinach, bacon, garlic, sweet pepper, tomato, onions, and paprika. Saute until spinach is wilted. Remove spinach mixture and set aside.
3. In the same skillet, scramble the eggs until just fluffy. Set aside. Toss the scrambled eggs with the crumbled bacon.
4. To assemble the Breakfast Bruschetta:
5. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and place the split muffins on the sheet. Place sheet in oven under broiler and broil until just toasty brown. Watch carefully so you don't burn the muffins.
6. Remove from oven and assemble bruschetta. Put 2-3 Tablespoons of spinach mixture on each English Muffin then place 2 tablespoons of Scrambled Egg mixture on top of spinach.
7. Sprinkle with shredded Mozzarella cheese. Place the baking sheet under the broiler (I used high setting) until the cheese is melted, about 1-2 minutes. Watch carefully, it is very easy to burn food under the broiler.
