TikTok Chef Shares One-Pan Breakfast Sandwich Hack
Whenever you want the full works for breakfast, the idea is ruined slightly by the prospect of all that washing up - especially if you're catering for more than one person.
But a cook in New Jersey has come up with a nifty trick to cook it all in one pan, meaning you don't have to spend ages washing up grill pans and frying pans, nor do you have to hang around waiting for each element to cook.
The 'Al Dente Diva', who has more than 483,000 followers on TikTok, has shown us that you can assemble a solid breakfast sandwich in the pan, including cooking the bread in egg so that it's a bit like French toast or eggy bread.
In the 30-second video - which now has more than 390,000 views - the Al Dente Diva adds some whisked-up eggs into the pan, before dipping two slices of bread into the mixture and turning them over, laying them down so that they're facing out from each other.
When the egg has started to set, she then flips the whole thing over to cook on the other side.

Next, she lays some cheese onto each slice of bread, followed by crispy bacon - which presumably can be cooked in the same pan beforehand - before folding the cooked egg into the middle.
The last step is to flip the two pieces of bread together, in turn encasing all of the other ingredients to make one very delicious sandwich.
It all looks easy enough, though I'd imagine you'll benefit from a good, non-stick pan to make flipping everything over that little bit easier.
The Al Dente Diva's TikTok and YouTube channels have many more breakfast ideas, including a similar one-pan meal that involves cooking egg, bacon and cheese in one pan, folding it together and stuffing it into a toasted bagel.
The cook, who is known only as 'T', also has many other creative recipes for you to try out, like an attractive twist on the classic BLT sandwich, where the bacon is latticed before it's cooked.
Or there's a cast iron pizza, which is cooked in a skillet, along with a giant cookie dessert cooked in the same way.
Man, now I'm HUNGRY.
