From Away for the Worlds Greatest Sandwich ,that chef Thomas Keller developed for Adam Sandler to make in the movie Spanglish. It's basically a bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwich dressed up with a fried drippy egg yolk and it is pretty great. I ended up making this one night when was up ridiculously late and didn't want to leave my house to get something to eat.....this truly may be one of the worlds greatest sandwiches.
- 4 thick slices of bacon
- 2 slices of Monterey Jack cheese
- 2 thick slices of sourdough bread or other toasted rustic country loaf (pain de campagne)
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 4 tomato slices
- 2 leaves of butter lettuce (yes, it's called butter lettuce)
- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
- 1 large egg
1.In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
2.Set the Monterey Jack slices on 1 piece bread, and toast both slices of bread under the broiler until lightly browned and bubbly. Spread the slice of bread without cheese with mayonnaise, and then top with bacon, then lettuce, then tomato.
3.Melt butter in a small nonstick pan. Add the egg and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp around the edge, about 4 minutes; the yolk should still be runny. Slide the egg onto the lettuce; close the sandwich and eat immediately.
Note: I happen to love a runny egg, but some do not, so if you don't, I suggest cooking it a little more to your liking....trust me, it will still be good :)
