Chrissy Teigen Gives Glory to John Legend's Egg Sandwiches

You know John Legend can sing, write music, play piano and win Oscars, but did you know he’s also a master of the egg sandwich?

Anyone who watched the Academy Awards on Sunday night knows singer-songwriter John Legend (aka John Stephens) and rapper Common (Lonnie Lynn) killed it with their rousing performance of “Glory,” from the film Selma, sparking a standing ovation from the audience and leaving some celebrity faces streaked with tears. Then they slayed it all over again when they collected their golden statuettes for Best Original Song.

But what you may not know is that Legend is also apparently handy with the morning meal.

"I don't cook a lot," he recently told Grub Street, "but I often cook breakfast ... I'm good with omelets, egg sandwiches, scrambled eggs, bacon — anything you want for breakfast, I can make it."

Legend’s model wife, Chrissy Teigen, who is an enthusiastic eater and who recently judged Burger Bash at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, has offered her endorsement, especially of her husband’s egg sandwich, a “sausage McMuffin,” featuring sausage, an English muffin (Thomas’), an egg cooked over easy, and not one, not two, but three slices of American cheese.

"And only American cheese is acceptable," Teigen told Grub Street. "It's the only thing we do right, lately."

Of course, she said that before he wowed the crowd at the Dolby Theatre and snagged that shiny new friend named Oscar.
