He told hosts Hoda Kotb and Carson Daly: "I've always loved food and then obviously when quarantine hit I really started to get into it. My fiancée started filming me and I started posting it, and it's just something that I love doing."

Brooklyn went on to explain that his dad David is the cook in the family. "He likes to cook anything," said Brooklyn. "Risotto, pasta… he loves to cook steak."

Carson Daly asked Brooklyn when one would eat his breakfast sandwich, to which he replied: "Every morning." The budding photographer also raved about his favourite cooking pan which is a cast-iron skillet, before going on to demonstrate cooking bacon and sausages. "English bacon is the best bacon," he said.

Brooklyn's sausage, bacon and egg sandwich

Brooklyn's sausage tip is to slice them in half when fully cooked, and it then becomes 'like a patty', as Carson observed. "My great-grandma taught me how to make this, so it's really special to me," added Brooklyn.

The order of construction of said breakfast sandwich is to first place the sausage onto white bread, followed by the bacon – or "pork on pork" as Hoda commented – followed by a large dollop of ketchup. You then "squish it down" and cut it in half.

Tasting the sandwich, Hoda exclaimed: "Brooklyn, it was your first time, you did great honey!"
