Lobster Breakfast Sandwich
One of my most decadent indulgences (even beyond desserts!) is this amazing Lobster Breakfast Sandwich! Best served on freshly baked brioche buns and overflowing with creamy scrambled eggs, seared asparagus spears and fresh lobster! The hardest part about making these sandwiches is that whenever we order fresh lobster (overnight shipping) it will inevitably arrive in the evening. So obviously, we have some for dinner…which means that a plentiful portion for each sandwich has to be tucked away until morning.
When our appetites have recovered (usually in time for a hearty brunch) there is absolutely no skimping allowed while making these lobster sandwiches! Typically, we reserve a couple of tails and some other chunks of lobster meat to portion out between four sandwiches. Each sandwich gets a half a tail, plus some, for the lobster portion of the sandwich!
The base is equally as important, and we don’t make just any eggs to add to these breakfast sandwiches. We ALWAYS use our Gordon Ramsay style creamy scrambled eggs, maybe with some dill, but today we had fresh chives on hand which is a close runner-up for ‘great herbs to add’.
Fresh asparagus spears are only lightly pan-seared for this masterpiece, as they will add a slight crunch to what would otherwise simply be ‘super soft’ sandwich fixings.
