I do my best to stay healthy and eat well. You know, try to avoid clogging the arteries. But there are times you just have to go for it. Throw caution to the wind and indulge. I had seen variations on the theme of adding a fried egg to sandwiches so I thought I’d some fun with a grilled cheese.
This is a BLT, bacon and egg, grilled cheese treat. I’d say I’d kept it somewhat healthy by adding the tomato and lettuce but who am I kidding!
It’s amazing how the mention of the word bacon can light a fire under someone. My husband uttered the word and I’m not sure my son’s feet touched the stairs on the way down!
After cooking up the bacon and making our dogs drool in optimism I fried my egg in the bacon fat. I love eggs fried in bacon fat but this is a very rare treat as it wouldn’t do a body good so to speak to have it too often. While the egg was frying we grilled the sandwich with jarlsberg cheese, the bacon, tomato, and lettuce. Don’t forget to butter the outside! Separate the sandwich and place the egg on one half, season with salt and pepper.
Carefully cut the sandwich in half. I recommend doing this on the actual plate as the egg is runny.
It was a my oh my kind of sandwich. A bit messy but delicious. 🙂
