Forks BAM Sammy Sandwich sliced in half with chips on the side on a white plate.

Avocado Bacon and Egg Sandwich

This Avocado Bacon and Egg Sandwich is a copycat of my all time favorite sandwich to get at a place in downtown Boise called Fork. It’s called the BAM Sammy. Bacon. Avocado. Mozzarella. BAM.

  • At least an hour before you start preparing your meal, mix together the maple syrup and brown sugar in a small bowl. Cut the bacon slices into halves, make sure they are separated from each other, and place them all in a large plastic bag. Pour the syrup mixture over the bacon and seal. Place bag in the fridge to marinate.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. After bacon has marinated for an hour, line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and top that with a wire rack/cooling rack. Arrange 6 small slices of bacon into a weave (see picture below). Or you can just cook the pieces normally. Bake for about 20 minutes, or desired crispiness. Keep oven on.
  • While the bacon is cooking, slice the tomatoes and avocados. And cook the eggs over medium.
  • On another cookie sheet arrange the 8 slices of bread, 4 with sliced mozzarella cheese, 4 with a layer of pesto. Bake just until cheese begins to melt.
  • Arrange by a slice of cheese bread topped with the tomato, bacon, egg, avocado, and then topped with a pesto slice.
  • This recipe makes 4 sandwiches, you can adjust according to how many you actually need.
