Ultimate breakfast sandwich

mahimahi | Oct 19, 2010 12:47 PM

So I woke up on this beautiful Hawaii morning, and just like all of you that love food. I decided to create the ultimate breakfast sandwich.
I like turkey bacon so that's what I used. I got my favorite cast iron pan nice and hot but to hot. Cooked the bacon some nice and crispy some a little less. In a shallow pot I had some water with a little vinegar and a pinch of salt, for poaching my eggs. I then toasted two slices of bread (whole grain, straight from the freezer). I spread some butter on the bread after toasting placed about four pieces of crispy bacon and two med. cooked poached eggs. Ketchup on half. Made me some french press Kona coffee, and sat down to partake in this masterpiece. Had a couple of bites from the half with the ketchup, Hmmmmm its ok but not what I was looking for. Then a couple of bites from the one with out ketchup still no wow! I then made another sandwich with not so crispy bacon and soft poach eggs. On one half I sprinkled Fleur de sel. The other, plain with spicy ketchup on side (sriracha and ketchup). Still pretty good but still not wowing me. As I drank my Kona coffee I realized what went wrong. I remember my French Chef always telling me to start with fresh ingredients. The BREAD WAS FROZEN! and not so good bread to mention. I was too lazy to drive the two minutes to the grocery store. I may have ruined my chance to make the ultimate breakfast sandwich (in my opinion). I could of gotten some nice country bread or some croissants etc... but my laziness took control of me and I had to settle for less. I will try again but this was the moment, the window of opportunity, Fourth quarter 4 & goal on the 1. It wont be the same. But i'll try.
