  • Total Time:
  • Servings: makes 1 sandwich


  • 4 thick slices of bacon
  • 2 slices of Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 thick slices of rustic white bread, toasted and hot
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 2 leaves of butter lettuce
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg

How to make this recipe

  1. In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
