I took a quiz a few weeks ago about which Friends character I was and it came up being Randler (a mix of Ross and Chandler) which I could totally see.
I nerd out about a lot of things and I am very VERY sarcastic.
But I am also a neat freak so I then claimed that I was more a Chonica (a mix of Chandler and Monica).
If you have never seen an episode of Friends, this beginning will be lost on you but keep reading. Also, YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN AN EPISODE OF FRIENDS???
Then I started to question the whole Chonica theory because if there is one thing I am known for in my life, I hope it is my love of sandwiches.
And John Hughes.
Not John Hughes sandwiches. STAY WITH ME.
So maybe I am a Chonicaoey. A mix of Chandler, Monica, and Joey?
Except I don’t really like porn.
Maybe Chajonica. Yes, that is better.
I am a sandwich kind of girl. When it isn’t a panini. Or a grilled cheese. But it’s all good because they all fall under the sandwich umbrella!
So today I want to share with you one of my favorite sandwiches ever.
The messy BLT.
Your new sandwich best friend:
THAT’S RIGHT BABY. RIGHT THERE.
Oh crap. maybe I do like porn……
So this is what you will need:
Can we just take a moment to enjoy that picture of bacon?
Now if you love tomato, add it in. I just don’t care for it so it was voted off the island.
I love my eggs runny or “dunk eggs” as my mom calls them and as we always request she make us when we eat breakfast at her house.
I finally learned how to make these myself at the age of 45. So see? You’re never too old to learn anything.
Here is my nickel tutorial- heat a pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes; crack eggs into the pan. Season with salt and pepper, turn after 2 minutes or so. Cook for another 2 minutes and take off the heat.
Add in all of the ingredients in any order you wish. I choose toast, mayo, lettuce, bacon, eggs and top with toast. Cut in half and you have a leaky messy thing of beauty.
The key is to wipe up that yolk with your bread. Or bacon.
I NEVER SAID THIS WAS A LOW FAT SANDWICH.
In fact, that bread is low-carb so this is allowed on my low-carb
But can you imagine this on sourdough??
OH YEAH BABY. GIVE IT TO ME.

And because I have your back as it pertains to sandwich making, I have 12 recipes for sandwiches I have made over the years that you will love.
You read that right. I have written about sandwiches TWELVE other times on this blog.
I was trying to figure out my mission statement for this blog the other day, and I think I just found it.
