The World's Greatest Sandwich or the Spanglish Sandwich. Yep, from the movie Spanglish with Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni. Have you seen it? I have and can't remember being terribly impressed with it (kind of a depressing movie, wasn't it?). However, when someone calls something the greatest, they leave you no choice but to give it a try.
John and I both agree, this really could be the world's greatest sandwich. I'm not even joking one bit.
If you follow the recipe in the order it should be done, you will see what I mean and you will be glad I am a sucker for catchy titles. The egg yoke dripping down the layers of the sandwich is not only the key but pure genius.
Ingredients: (per sandwich)
3 - 4 slices of bacon
2 slices Monterey Jack cheese
2 slices of your choice of bread - toasted (I used split top butter)
1 TBLS. mayo
4 tomato slices
2 leaves lettuce
Cook the bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels.
Place slices of cheese on one side of toasted bread. Place in toaster oven or broiler until just melted.
Spread mayo on other side of bread and top with bacon, sliced tomato and lettuce.
Melt butter in non stick skillet over medium heat. Fry egg, turning over briefly when bottom is set, keeping the yolk runny.
Slide finished egg on top of the lettuce. Top with other slice of bread.
Place sandwich on a plate, slicing it in half and letting the egg yolk run down the sandwich.
