Today the weather has turned cool and rainy. My usual morning meal of toast or cereal was just not going to cut it. I felt like a good old fried egg sandwich. First, if at all possible, use a pan that fries up nicely so that your egg gets good and crispy and brown along the edges. The best pan ever for frying an egg...Le Creuset.
I inherited this little pan when we bought this house. It is fabulous. The perfect size for a single egg, does not stick, but fries the egg crispy, the way I LOVE it. I use a dab of butter in the pan and break the yoke as soon as I drop the egg into the pan.
For the bread, I prefer sour dough, as it toasts up very crispy. And you must use a good mayonnaise on the bread. I like Best Foods, but whatever you prefer. When the egg is crispy, just place between the toasted bread and get ready for a yummy breakfast. I make these for the kids or my hubby when they are on their way out and need to take a hardy breakfast to eat in the car. Wrapped in tin foil, they stay hot for a long time.
Some coffee and a bit of sunshine from the yard. My little one picked these for me on Sunday and we have been watching them go to sleep and close up every night and wake up and open, the next morning.
