Recipe: Egg 'n' onion Sandwich
Well, today I'm making no pretense of preparing anything that's good for me. Today, I'm simply offering something that was good for my soul. Sometimes you've just gotta give in and do that for yourself. And so, I recently indulged in a toasted bagel with a fried egg and sauteed onion — an egg 'n' onion sandwich inspired by the old Jimmy Stewart movie "Harvey."
- 1 teaspoon bacon fat or butter
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
- 1 egg
- 1 everything bagel
- schmear of Dijon mustard
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
Heat the bacon fat (or butter) in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until just translucent.
Add the egg, being careful to keep the yolk intact, and nudge the onions into the raw egg to cook together. Cook until the edges of the egg are set and crisping. Carefully flip the egg and turn the heat off on the stove to let the underside cook while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Toast the bagel, and schmear the mustard onto it. Place the cheese on the bottom half of the bagel, top with the egg/onion, and then complete your sandwich with the top half of the bagel.
Makes 1 sandwich, which should be served with a napkin because the yolk will run. This is messy, but it's really good!
