Okay, it wasn’t exactly a lazy Saturday but I was at home writing this past Saturday around noon, and my wife called to say she was on her way home from running some errands with our 3-year old in tow. And that she was hungry. Now, we have both been watching what we eat more often than we’d like to be, but I had gone grocery shopping and shopped when I was hungry. That mean I bought lots of bad stuff….i.e. good stuff. So I asked her….”no restrictions on lunch?” She said, to my delight, “No restrictions.”
So I whipped up my own version of a a sandwich I had read about somewhere else. I took two perfect sub rolls and cut them in half. I sliced up some red pepper and some onion and fried them in olive oil for about 10 minutes on medium low so they would start to caramelize. I took some white American cheese and put slices down on the bottom half of the rolls. I slid the peppers and onions over and added about six thin slices of maple ham to the pan and fried them until brown but not so well-done that they were like bacon (not that there is anything wrong with bacon, but we wanted softer ham for this). I put the ham on top of the cheese on each bun.
Then I sprayed another nonstick pan with cooking spray and when it was hot, cracked four eggs into the pan. I flipped the eggs gently after the white started to set, and then removed from heat after about 30 more seconds.
Then I put some peppers and onions on each bun, and topped each with two eggs, still intact, and broke each yolk onto the sandwich. I think my wife’s words were, “This is f–king delicious.” Yeah, no rules, just good food. We were not hungover, but I believe this would be a monster sandwich to eat when hung over. Or just if you’re really, really hungry for lunch or even breakfast. Or late at night…or hey, anytime!
Note: We were so hungry that we forgot to take a photo, so the one above is a replacement until we make these kickass sandwiches again.
