The Chemistry Egg Breakfast Sandwich

The eggs, whisked with milk and cooked gently, transform from liquid to a fluffy, cohesive mass, a process known as coagulation. The milk adds moisture and tenderness to the scrambled eggs, ensuring they’re soft and not rubbery. Bacon, when baked, undergoes the Maillard reaction, developing a deep, complex flavor and irresistible crispness. The melting Colby Jack cheese adds a creamy texture and rich taste, perfectly complementing the eggs and bacon.
