An easy, satisfying one this - a hearty BLT sandwich that has an added ingredient - an egg.
It's simple, it's straightforward and when paired with a cold glass of beer, it's the ideal snack for a night in. Or a morning. Or whenever… Shame that the movie it appears in is such a light trifle - especially coming from James L Brooks.
John Clasky (Adam Sandler), famed cook and a man with a troubled private life.
But the real chef responsible is Thomas Keller, who Brooks asked to provide the dish. Which might be why it's memorable.
How To Recreate It:
Four thick slices of bacon,
two slices of Monterey Jack cheese, two thick slices of rustic white bread, toasted and hot
, one tablespoon mayonnaise, four tomato slices
, two leaves of butter lettuce
, one teaspoon unsalted butter and one large egg.
1. In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning, until crisp, about eight minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
2. Set the Monterey Jack slices on one 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 four minutes; the yolk should still be runny.
4. Slide the egg onto the lettuce; close the sandwich and eat right away.
Do your best not to add the whining attitude, though.
