One morning in Portland, Maine, I found the PERFECT egg sandwich and rushed home to create in my own kitchen. I use a pannini grill for this, but you could use a grill pan as long as you weighted the top while cooking each side. Bacon is optional but I think it adds alot of flavor! Be warned... this is a really filling breakfast. Don't expect to be hungry for lunch!
