BROWN SUGAR BACON
2Tbspbrown sugar $0.08
1/2tspchipotle chili powder $0.05
1/8tspgarlic powder $0.02
4brioche buns $3.49
1large tomato $1.12
1head lettuce* $0.99
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil, then place two wire cooling racks over the foil. Lay the bacon across the wire racks. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the bacon and pat it into the surface lightly. Bake the bacon in the preheated oven until brown and crispy. (About 10 minutes for regular bacon or 20 minutes for thick cut bacon. Watch the bacon closely as every oven is different.)
While bacon is cooking, prepare the chipotle mayo and sandwich toppings. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, chipotle powder, and garlic powder. Cover the mayo and refrigerate until ready to use. Slice the tomato into thick rounds. Wash and shake dry the lettuce. Slice the buns in half.
Fry or scramble four eggs to your liking.
When the bacon is finished, let it cool until it's no longer too hot to handle. Break each slice in half so that it better fits the sandwich. Spread a tablespoon of the chipotle mayo on each side of the bun, add a lettuce leaf or two, a slice of tomato, an egg, and one slice of bacon (broken into two short strips). Enjoy!
*I didn't use the entire head of lettuce, but included the entire price because I'm not sure that I'll use the leftovers.
