  • In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  • Set the Monterey Jack slices on 1 piece of toast. Spread the mayonnaise on the other slice of toast, then top with the bacon, tomato and lettuce.
  • In a small, nonstick skillet, melt the butter. Add the egg and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp around the edge, about 4 minutes; the yolk should still be runny. Slide the egg onto the lettuce; close the sandwich and eat right away.

    In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Set the Monterey Jack slices on 1 piece bread, and toast both slices of bread under the broiler until lightly browned and bubbly. Spread the slice of bread without cheese with mayonnaise, and then top with bacon, then lettuce, then tomato. Melt butter in a small nonstick pan. Add the egg and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp around the edge, about 4 minutes; the yolk should still be runny. Slide the egg onto the lettuce; close the sandwich and eat immediately. What a hearty, good breakfast, Can't wait to make this for lunch today with a onion on top too, I did use sour dough bread and cover with laughing cow after toasting. I love BLT's bacon, lettuce and tomato; fried egg; and grilled cheese. sandwich, a winner all around!! We can play with this all day !! Thank You Pia !! .... PRMR 2013....Grpa

    What could be better than a warm sandwich when you decide not to make dinner... (hubby is in the 'dog house' tonight). Thanks for the reminder of a classic sandwiich. I've been making them this way all of my lifetime (but I skip the tomatoes). Just ate one after reading your post. YUM! Thanks a lot, hun. :) Oops... I forgot to say that I do break the yolk while frying (personal preference), and I use "sour-dough" bread, and "white farm house cheddar" cheese. This is the perfect "some-what" grilled cheese sandwich +PLUS! (I still prefer the pan with butter method, but this is a lot quicker). Thank you for reminding me that "simple" is sometimes better! I will make this variation again :)

    I made this ever-so-easy to make & yummy sammie for a family brunch Sat using whole wheat sandwich bread & very thinly sliced smoked gouda cheese. My DH likes having brunch as it normally includes a dessert, so I combined it w/Recipe #314978 by Bayhill + some fresh fruit. My BIL made the prize rating comment when he said ~ On a scale of 1-10, I give this a 9.5 ... only because I felt I needed to leave room for you to improve on it, but I am not sure that is possible. Thx for sharing this classic recipe combo w/us.

    Good sammie! I like my yolks runny, and like breezermom it made it a challenge to eat it. lol. But it was worth it - messy sandwiches are always the best! This was simple and I used a maple-flavored bacon that really put it over the top. Thanks MsPia for sharing. Made for Cooking Tag Mania.
