the best bacon, egg and cheese on a roll, ever

for breakfast this morning, i made the best bacon, egg and cheese on a roll, ever. i started off by broiling a few slices of niman ranch bacon in the toaster oven last night so i wouldn't have to worry about it this morning. i was worried at first that the thick, smokey pieces were too fatty, but upon cooking, all the extra fat had rendered out, leaving three inch strips of cured pork goodness. this morning, i warmed up a small loaf of bread that i had purchased from blue apron foods on sunday. it was similiar to a ciabatini, but had more rise to it. the few moments in the toaster oven restored the chewiness of the inside and crust. i cut the loaf in half and spread a tiny bit of QP mayo on one side. i laid a few pieces of green leaf lettuce leftover from last night's dinner salad atop the mayo'ed side. in the skillet, i gently cooked one beaten organic brown egg until it settled and then with a not so adept flick of the wrist, flipped the egg over. on top i added a kraft single. ok, pick up your jaw from the floor. i love melted american cheese. i love its texture when it's warm and oozy. i let the cheese warm up for a few seconds and then took the pan off the heat and slid its contents on and over the lettuce pieces. on the other slice of bread i placed the slices of bacon and then i put the two halves together and wrapped it up in parchment paper. i ate it at my desk when i got into work. it was an ever so delicious way to start the day. if i had a digital camera, i would post a photo right here. instead, i give you a link!

reading this at lunchtime, when i haven't eaten all day was torturous. also the QP Mayo packaging is kinda creepy. what's with the little kid on it?

Uh, I would have been with you all the way on this, but...LETTUCE?! On a bacon egg and cheese? You can't eat lettuce for breakfast! As a major anti-lettuce-ite, I'd say you should almost never eat it, but why would you defile one of man's greatest creations, the breakfast sandwich, with that limp excuse for a vegetable (or any legitimate vegetable, for that matter)? Might as well put asparagus in a strawberry shortcake. From a writing perspective, though, this entry is top notch. I like your food writing. Just not your fondness for lettuce.

whaddya mean you can't eat lettuce for breakfast? you can eat anything you want for breakfast. at brunch, nearly every savory dish comes with a side of dressed greens. you guys are crazy. plus, roughage makes you regular.

Did anyone else follow Sujan's link and run across that absolutely fucking horrifying picture of the roast turkey w/ the bikini tan lines? I think I may go to my grave with that image burned into my mind.
