I've drooled over photos of breakfast sandwiches on The Food Pornographer's website for a long time, but I hadn't thought of making one at home since cooking bacon is usually too time-consuming for me. But then I realized I could use deli ham and my new favorite breakfast was created:
I toast two slices of white bread and then butter them. While the bread is toasting I fry two eggs overeasy and layer deli ham (I prefer Virginia ham for the sweetness) on the toasted, buttered bread. When the eggs are done they're placed on top of the ham, sprinkled with fresh ground pepper and the sandwich is assembled. The pressure of the first bite breaks the yolks and most of the gooey, yolk-y goodness dribbles onto the plate, but I just use the sandwich edges to sop it all up. I think TFP would be proud of this shot:
Messy but so, so good.
