If you’ve crawled through the drive-thru for breakfast and ordered a sandwich, you’ve likely experience at least one of the following meal maladies: overcooked eggs, feeble bacon, slipshod construction, grease slicks, salt overload, weirdly textured sausage, stale buns, poor ingredient distribution, or complete and utter lack of flavor. The sandwich never looks like it does on the menu board and ingesting it only doubles your regret.
It’s time you reclaim the breakfast sandwich. This recipe from 25 Degrees, a boutique burger shop with locations in Los Angels, Chicago, and Bangkok, proves that even when you’re pressed for time, you can whip up a superlative hand-held breakfast.
Make the herbed mayo in advance, fry up some Canadian bacon and eggs, and assemble the sandwich. The whole process should take about 15 minutes from refrigerator to mouth. There are even vegetables on it!
Fried egg sandwich
Recipe by Tim Goodell, executive chef of 25 Degrees in Los Angeles
What you’ll need:
1 cup mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 tsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp butter
4 slices Canadian bacon
4 whole eggs
4 slices American cheese
4 brioche buns, or other soft, buttery buns, halved and lightly toasted
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 leaves butter lettuce
4 thick slices tomato
How to make it:
1. Make the herb aioli. In a medium bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, parsley, tarragon, chives, and lemon zest. Refrigerate until ready to use.
2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the Canadian bacon and cook each side until slightly caramelized, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked slices to a plate lined with paper towels.
3. Lower the heat of the skillet to medium-low. Add the eggs and cook to desired firmness. Just before the eggs are done, place a slice of American cheese over each egg and cook until melted, about 30 seconds, and then remove the pan from the heat.
4. Spread 1 Tbsp of herb aioli on each half of the toasted buns. Place on egg on the bottom half of each bun. Season the eggs with salt and pepper. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, and Canadian bacon. Close each sandwich and serve. Makes 4 sandwiches.
