Move over sausage and eggs, this Fried Banana and Bacon Breakfast Sandwich is the new king of the morning!
When I saw these Thomas Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins in the store I couldn’t resist grabbing them. The plump raisins inside the cinnamon bread is just amazing when toasted and served with a nice helping of butter slathered on top.
I have them frequently during the week.
Then I got to thinking… I wonder if I could make a delicious breakfast sandwich to fit my new favorite english muffin?
I wanted something sweet, yet savory, but I didn’t want to add an egg in there.
You can still call it a breakfast sandwich without an egg, right?
I mean, this sandwich is filled with fried (read: slightly caramelized with cinnamon and sugar) bananas, crisp and smoky bacon and what I think is the best part…
Maple syrup infused mascarpone cream!!!!
So basically the best thing ever invented.
Toast up your cinnamon and raisin english muffins, slather them with the glorious, creamy spread and top it with some sweet honey glazed bananas and crispy bacon.
Seriously… breakfast of my dreams.
If you’re looking for a new and exciting way to do breakfast, you’re definitely going to want to try this baby out.
It’s perfect for home or on the go…
Just make sure you grab some napkins!
Fried Banana and Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

- In a small bowl whisk together the honey and water and pour into the hot pan, coating the banana slices. Sprinkle with the cinnamon.
