Each Thursday, Emily Vikre (a.k.a fiveandspice) will be sharing a new way to love breakfast -- because breakfast isn't just the most important meal of the day. It's also the most awesome.

Today: Breakfast sandwiches with sharp cheddar are always a little bit better.

If I had to choose the meals I would eat for my perfect day of eating, well, I don’t know if I could do it. What I think is perfect depends on the season, the day, my mood. However, there is a strong possibility that a day of perfect eating for me would start with a breakfast sandwich. And if it did, there’s an even stronger possibility that that breakfast sandwich would have sharp cheddar on it.

You can have a good breakfast sandwich, even a really great breakfast sandwich, without sharp cheddar sure, but the ones with sharp cheddar somehow always seem to be even a little bit better.  Something about the grassy tang of the cheese against the mildness of a fried egg, I think.

These sandwiches take it even a step further with the addition of creamy, mustardy greens on top of the cheddar and fried egg. I like the combination best tucked into a biscuit, which makes for fantastic weekend brunch fare, but swap in an English muffin or a couple of pieces of whole grain bread, and it works just as well as a weekday breakfast -- a perfect day of eating could start any day of the week!
