The Best Sandwich In the World

Have you watched the movie "Spanglish"? If you haven't, do. If you have, rent it again to get this recipe...or don't and just get it here.

BLT With A Fried Egg and Cheese

3-4 slices of bacon
2 slices of Monterey Jack cheese
2 slices of toasted rustic country loaf
1 tbsp of mayo
4 tomato slices
2 leaves of butter lettuce
1 teaspoon butter
1 egg

Disclaimer: As with any sandwich--the quality and freshness of the ingredients make or break it. So, it is worth it to get REALLY GOOD bread with a dense moist interior and a crackly crust. Use flavorful tomatoes, farm fresh eggs, and quality Jack and thick-cut bacon from your local butcher. Do you have a local butcher?


1. Cook the bacon until crisp, drain on paper towels
2. Place slices of cheese on one side of toasted bread. Place in toaster oven or under broiler to melt.
3. Spread mayo on other slice of bread top with bacon, sliced tomato, and lettuce
4. On non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Fry egg, turning over briefly when the bottom is set (keep yolk runny)
5. Slide finished egg on top of lettuce, top with other slice of bread
6. Place sandwich on plate and slice in half, letting yolk run down sandwich

Enjoy with an ice cold bottled root beer with your lover.
