This sandwich is the cholesterol king! Please don’t eat this if you’re going for a healthy meal. I don’t know what it is about my husband but he just loves fried eggs on top of things – especially burgers! So when I was making BLTs for dinner one night, I thought I’d throw an egg on top for fun. And he LOVED it. He was so excited when he got home and saw I’d added the egg. It’s a really easy way to please him ;) Soon I will be posting how I cook perfect fried eggs every time. It’s really crazily simple. Basically don’t touch them. Just crack ‘em, cook ‘em, and wait for them to cook. Here’s how I make the sandwiches:
- Bacon (you’ll need about 3-4 strips per sandwich, depending on how much you like ;)
- Hoagie rolls or steak rolls (I like these because they are long sandwich rolls which hold the bacon well)
- Eggs (1-2 per sandwich)
- Salt/pepper to taste
- Cooking spray
To start, cook your bacon and set aside. I like it cooled more to room temperature for the sandwiches so I always make it first. You can see how I make it in the oven here.
Next get out the sandwich ingredients. Chop the lettuce and tomatoes. Layer them on the rolls with a light layer of mayo, then the bacon, and set aside.
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and turn the heat up to medium high. Let the pan get hot before you crack your eggs. This is important! It takes about 2 minutes. Once the cooking spray is hot crack the eggs, one by one, into the pan. Don’t touch them! Just let them cook until the whites start to bubble and until the yolk is a tiny bit set. We like the yolks to be a tiny bit done with just a little ooze in the middle.
As soon as they’re done, turn off the pan. Use a knife to cut out each egg white. Transfer with a spatula to the top of your sandwich and sprinkle with salt and pepper. SO easy!
