The Simple Things


I am a big believer in breakfast. Even if it means just eating a bowl of Cheerios. But because I do that more days than not, when I have a little more time, I like to make myself a big hearty meal. This means making things that involve good hearty breakfast things like eggs, bacon, cheese and toast. When I am feeling particularly crazy, I combine them all together into one of my most favorite breakfast creations: the fried egg sandwich.

The other night, instead of thinking about the usual puppies and gummy bears as I drifted off to sleep, I found myself thinking about why I love fried egg sandwiches almost as much as I love carbonara. And then it hit me–they have all the same all-star players: bacon, cheese, eggs and some form of carby goodness! Then I started thinking about more puppies and gummy bears and fell asleep.

When I woke up the next morning though, the first thing I did was make my fried egg sandwich dream a reality. First I fried the few strips of bacon we had left over from the time I made carbonara last week. While they were a sizzlin’, I toasted some bread and did them up with an extra bit of butter love. We are currently hooked on wheat sourdough which is the perfect shape for a fried egg sandwich.

Then came the fried eggs. I like my yolks to have a tiny bit of run to them.

After flipping the eggs over, I hid them under slices of provolone.

And then I introduced all the players.

So there you have it. Plain and simple, but so good.
