Spicy Bacon and Egger

Normally I’m one to thumb my nose at “quality ingredients” but in this case, with so few, the quality makes a difference. Splurge for a fancy block of bacon you can hand cut yourself, this isnt the sandwich for bargain bin store brand over salted bacon.

I did use wonder bread though, but it’s a quarantine so get off my back about it!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 lb bacon ideally thick cut
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 slice havarti
  • 5-8 pickled jalapenos see above for recipe
  • 2 slices white bread toasted
  • mayonnaise
  • HP sauce less is more for this
  • 1 tbsp 10% cream
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • In a medium skillet on medium heat fry the bacon 3-4 minutes per side. Ideally you want to weigh it down, really press it into the pan to develop that maillard goodness
  • Remove the bacon from the pan and form into a tight pile roughly the size of the bread you'll be using, top it with the havarti, cover with a pot lid and set aside. The bacon's residual heat will melt the cheese
  • If you don't have an egg ring, skip this step and just fry your egg how you like.
    Place your egg ring in the center of the skillet and cover with a lid for about a minute. We want to preheat it so the outside of the egg sets immediately and doesn't run underneath.
  • While your ring preheats whisk together the egg, cream, salt and pepper in a small bowl
  • Poor the egg into the ring, after 20 seconds or so reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and allow to cook to desired done-ness. For me that was about 3-5 minutes.
  • Spread both pieces of toast lightly with the mayo, place the meat and cheese on the bottom, followed by the peppers, then the egg and optionally a light drizzle of HP sauce.
