The Spanglish Sandwich

I've seen the movie Spanglish several times.  I think I've seen nearly every Adam Sandler movie out there.  He's a great father in the movie and just an overall sweet guy who puts up with a lot from his nuts-0 wife.  I like to see him play that type of role. 

Tea Leoni plays the selfish, narcissistic, mother who you love to hate.  We can only laugh at her horrible exploits knowing it's all  purely fiction (although I'm sure the situation does exist somewhere). 

Adam Sandler has a scene where he's making himself a sandwich at home.  If you're watching it and happen to be hungry, well,  I bet you'll want to make that sandwich.  It was created by a famous French chef especially for the movie.  


3 slices of bacon
2 slices of a thick roll or bread (or of your choice)
2 slices of monterey jack cheese
1/2 tsp of mayonnaise
2 pieces of butter lettuce
2 slices of tomato
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, fry up your bacon. When it’s done, remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel. Place your monterey jack cheese on one slice of bread and place it under the broiler until melted (I did it in a conventional oven). Take the other slice of bread and spread the 1/2 tsp of mayonnaise (you can obviously add more if you like).
If you have a non-stick pan, melt butter over medium heat and fry your egg.
If you’re using a skillet like I have pictured above, drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan.  When it’s hot, crack your egg and fry until done.
Assemble the sandwich, placing the bacon on the slice with the cheese and the lettuce, tomato and fried egg on the other. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper and bring the two slices together. Cut in half and enjoy.
