Ingredients

1 tablespoon ketchup

1/2 teaspoon chipotle in adobo sauce

2 slices sourdough bread

2 slices Cheddar

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 slice bacon, halved 

1 egg

Directions

  1. Combine the ketchup and chipotle and spread on the inside of each piece of bread. Place the cheese between the bread at an angle so that the edges hangover the sides of the bread. Butter the outside of one bread slice with half the butter. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Press the sandwich on, buttered-side down. Press until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has started to melt. Butter the other side (which is facing up) with the remaining butter and flip. Cook until golden brown and the cheese is gooey, this should all take 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the sandwich from the heat and hold.
  2. Meanwhile, in a pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until barely crisp, about 5 minutes. Flip the bacon, pushing the two pieces next to each other to form a square. Crack the egg on top, cooking into the bacon. Continue cooking until the egg is set, about 5 minutes. Open up the sandwich (use a spoon to help pull apart the bread) and slide in the eggs and bacon. Close up, slice and enjoy.

<p><span>I’ve been making these for decades, with 2 exceptions. I use a Sriracha ketchup blend and I use mayo on the bread instead of butter. Mayo spreads more evenly and imparts a nice flavor without being too greasy. I also pop the yoke so that it’s slightly runny but not able to squirt anyone else, or myself, at the table. I’d learned that one the hard way.</span></p>
