Ingredients
  1. 8 slices bacon
  2. 4 large Dakota Layers eggs
  3. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  4. 4 slices American cheese
  5. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  6. 8 slices sourdough bread*
  7. 1 cup guacamole, homemade or store-bought
Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, flipping once, about 3-4 minutes. Drain excess fat; reserving 1 tablespoon in the skillet. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.

  3. With a butter knife, spread butter on each slice of bread. Place bread in the skillet and toast, flipping once, until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. To assemble the sandwiches, place 4 slices bread on a work surface. Spread with guacamole, topped with bacon, egg, cheese and another slice of bread.
  5. Serve immediately.
Notes
  1. *Any type of bread of your choice can be substituted.

Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more for the pizzas and grill grates
  2. 1 pound bulk breakfast sausage
  3. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  4. 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  5. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed
  7. 8 ounces sharp white Cheddar, shredded (about 3 heaping cups)
  8. 4 large Dakota Layers eggs
  9. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  10. Hot sauce, for serving
Instructions
  1. Prepare an outdoor grill for medium heat. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, and cook, stirring and breaking up with a wooden spoon, until browned and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, and use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to a plate.
  3. Reserving 2 tablespoons of drippings in the skillet (drain or add oil as needed), return it to medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour, and cook, whisking frequently, until the mixture becomes loose and turns a light tan color, 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Simmer, whisking frequently, until the sauce has thickened to the consistency of thin gravy, 6 to 8 minutes. Return the cooked sausage to the skillet, and stir. Remove from the heat, cover and set aside.
  4. Divide the pizza dough into 4 balls. Dust a clean flat work surface with flour, and roll each ball into an 8-inch circle. Transfer the dough circles to the prepared baking sheet, and brush both sides with oil.
  5. Lightly oil the grill grates. Grill the crusts until they start to puff and distinct grill marks appear on the underside, about 1 minute. Flip. Evenly divide the Cheddar among the crusts, leaving a small well in the center of each. Immediately crack 1 egg into each well. Grill, covered, until the whites have completely set and the Cheddar has melted, 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, reheat the sausage gravy if needed. Remove the pizzas from the grill, and drizzle each with a couple spoonfuls of warm gravy. Garnish with the scallions. Serve immediately with hot sauce and any remaining gravy served on the side.

Ingredients
  1. 8 large eggs
  2. 4 teaspoons water
  3. 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour or cornstarch
  4. 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  5. 4 teaspoons vegetable or coconut oil
  6. 1 1/3 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  7. 4 ounces very thinly sliced ham
  8. 1 1/3 cups loosely packed watercress
Instructions
  1. Place the eggs, water, flour or cornstarch, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until broken up and the flour or cornstarch is completely dissolved.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Swirl the pan to coat the bottom with the oil. Add 1/2 cup of the egg mixture and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan in a thin layer. Cook until the wrap is completely set on the edges and on the bottom (the top can be a little wet, but should be mostly set), 3 to 6 minutes.
  3. Using a flat spatula, loosen the edges of the wrap and slide it underneath the wrap, making sure it can slide easily around the pan. Flip the wrap with the spatula. Immediately sprinkle 1/3 cup of the cheese over the wrap and cook until the second side is set, about 1 minute. Slide it onto a work surface or cutting board (the cheese might not be fully melted yet). While still warm, place a single layer of ham over the egg. Place 1/3 cup of the watercress across the center of the wrap. Roll it up tightly.
  4. Repeat with cooking and filling the remaining wraps. Using a serrated knife, cut each wrap crosswise into 6 (1-inch) pieces.
