Spangish Sandwich

This is the sandwich that steals the thunder from Adam Sandler in the movie "Spangish".

Created by Thomas Keller, this is a variant of the popular BLT sandwich (bacon, lettuce and tomato) added with  fried egg; and grilled cheese.  

After making it for the very first time, I believed how the egg is cooked is probably matter the most, the egg yolk must be 'running' and as such it is able to bind of the ingredient together to give a mouth flavorful bite.  My first attempt was a 'well-done' fried egg, it still taste good!

Original recipe below

3-4 slices of bacon
2 slices of Monterey Jack cheese
2 slices of toasted rustic country loaf
1 tbsp of mayo
4 tomato slices
2 leaves of butter lettuce
1 teaspoon butter
1 egg 

    1. Cook the bacon until crisp, drain on paper towels
    2. Place slices of cheese on one side of toasted bread. Place in toaster oven or under broiler to melt.
    3. Spread mayo on other slice of bread top with bacon, sliced tomato, and lettuce
    4. On non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Fry egg, turning over briefly when the bottom is set (keep yolk runny)
    5. Slide finished egg on top of lettuce, top with other slice of bread (cheese-side down genius)
    6. Place sandwich on plate and slice in half, letting yolk run down sandwich 
    2 Future improvements are not to fried the egg till well done, and the egg should be placed on top of the lettuce
