BLT Egg & Cheese Sandwich


Servings: 1
  • 4 slices thick bacon
  • 2 slices monterey jack cheese
  • 2 slices rustic white bread, thick slices, toasted and hot
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 4 slices tomatoes
  • 2 leaves butter lettuce
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  • Set the Monterey Jack slices on 1 piece of toast. Spread the mayonnaise on the other slice of toast, then top with the bacon, tomato and lettuce.
  • In a small, nonstick skillet, melt the butter. Add the egg and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp around the edge, about 4 minutes; the yolk should still be runny. Slide the egg onto the lettuce; close the sandwich and eat right away.
