Classic Fried Egg Sandwich

Here is a Nessly breakfast staple to set you up to be ready for a long day’s work.  And this one goes out to one heck of a Nessly, Orion Nessly, who just passed the Oregon Bar!!!

A fried egg sandwich literally bursts in your mouth as the egg yolk breaks and cheese and yolk dribble down to your chin.  That’s the test of a good sandwich, it’s messy.

Classic Fried Egg Sandwich

Servings: 1 fried egg sandwich

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup yellow onion, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1 egg

salt and freshly ground pepper

1 hearty slice of sharp cheddar cheese

2 slices good bread, toasted

whole grain mustard

1 thick slice red vine tomato

This is really cake to prepare and serves as a good impromptu breakfast or even dinner.  To start, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil over high heat on a medium saute pan.  Add onions, reduce heat to medium, and begin to caramelize.  Add red wine vinegar and sugar to onions and cook until fully caramelized (about 6-8 minutes).  Remove onions from pan and and add remaining olive oil to pan and place back over high heat.  Crack your egg into the pan and cook about 2 minutes on the first side, season, and then flip.  Add slice of cheddar cheese and cook for another 2 minutes.  Cover with pan lid to melt cheese, remove from heat.  To assemble your sandwich, coat your toasted bread with mustard, place your cheesy fried egg and caramelized onions on one piece of toast, add a slice of tomato, and top with remaining toast slice.  Bite, dribble, and enjoy!
