Spanglish Sandwich

Recipe by Thomas Keller

Yields 1 sandwich

3 slices of bacon

2 slices of country white bread (or of your choice)

2 slices of monterey jack cheese

1/2 tsp of mayonnaise

2 pieces of butter lettuce

2 slices of tomato

1 egg

salt and pepper to taste

In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, fry up your bacon. When it's done, remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel. Place your monterey jack cheese on one slice of bread and place it under the broiler until melted (I did it in a conventional oven). Take the other slice of bread and spread the 1/2 tsp of mayonnaise (you can obviously add more if you like).

If you have a non-stick pan, melt butter over medium heat and fry your egg.

If you're using a skillet like I have pictured above, drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan.  When it's hot, crack your egg and fry until done.

Assemble the sandwich, placing the bacon on the slice with the cheese and the lettuce, tomato and fried egg on the other. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper and bring the two slices together. Cut in half and enjoy.
