This recipe will ruin you for any other version of the same dish. Though this is technically the same sort of sandwich that you could get at a fast food joint, I can't discuss the different universes in which these sandwiches exist.
Whew, sorry, that's the second post in a row that I've been openly aggressive to you. Please forgive me. I don't mean to be, I'm just really passionate about these sandwiches, apparently.
*Resuming normal, cordial tone, knowing that everyone respects the sandwich too*
So say we all.
So say we all.
Slice your avocado thinly in preparation for the sandwich.
3 points on this step:
1. I'm an over-medium kinda girl. If you prefer your eggs scrambled, it will not ruin the integrity of the sandwich for you to do so during this step.
2. Please be sure to salt and pepper your egg. The ham adds some saltiness, but you still want the flavor of the egg to pop.
3. I hereby give you permission to go crazy with the deli meat here. If you have bacon, turkey, salami, or even a sausage patty, use that in place of ham. The ham just happened to be in my fridge. As a rule, I cook with what I have available.
At least my ingredients aren't imaginary. That has to count for something in the world.
Each favor is perfectly balanced with the others. The crunchiness of the fried bread perfectly compliments the runny egg yolk and the tanginess of the dijon mustard is balanced by the smooth taste of the avocado.
I made one of these for myself and my sister, and we both decided that our lives were forever changed by the taste of this sandwich.
Think about this the next time you reach for a bowl of Wheaties: will Wheaties change your life?
Best Breakfast Sandwich:
1 tbsp butter
1 hamburger bun
1 piece of ham
1 slice of American cheese
Place bread in a buttered saucepan over medium heat until golden brown. (Do not toast in the toaster. I will hunt you down.)
Chop chives and mix them with the mayonnaise. Spread over the toasted bread. Spread dijon mustard over the other piece of bread. Slice avocado thinly and place on one side of the sandwich.
Fry egg and piece of ham until egg is cooked to liking. (Be sure to salt the egg.)
Place egg, ham, and cheese on the bread.
