This fork-and-knife sandwich goes great with a brunch Bloody Mary, or with the more kid-friendly Strawberry-Limeade (page 000) or Watermelon Spritzer (page 000). I like your basic Oscar Meyer bacon, but you can also substitute turkey bacon, or a vegetarian option, if you prefer.
Total Time: 15 minutes
For the sandwiches:
- 1 pound bacon
- 2 6-inch baguettes, sliced lengthwise
- 4 large butter lettuce leaves
- 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
- Salt to taste
- Black pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, or use non-stick cooking spray
- 4 eggs
For the tarragon mayo:
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon (or 1 ½ teaspoons dried Italian seasoning)
WHAT TO DO
Cook the bacon according to package directions.
While the bacon is cooking, combine the mayonnaise and the tarragon in a small bowl, and blend well.
Set the broiler to high, and toast the four halves of baguette in the oven until they’re slightly brown. It should only take about a minute.
Spread the tarragon mayo on the toasted baguettes. Layer on the butter lettuce and tomato. Season the tomato with salt and pepper.
Spray a 10-inch nonstick pan with nonstick cooking spray, or melt 1 tablespoon of butter for each batch of eggs, and heat on medium-low. You can make two sunny side-up eggs at a time. Crack the eggs into the pan, keeping the heat low so the eggs don’t brown. Cook the eggs for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the both the yolks and the whites thicken and set. Layer one egg onto each sandwich, and serve warm.
