As I was coming home from work one day this week, all I could think about was what I was going to eat when I got home. I was starving and craving something unusual. During my long commute, several possibilities flooded through my mind, but nothing really said, "Yeah, that's it!" That is until this sandwich came to mind.
A good BLT sandwich is a favorite of mine. I love the crispy, thick bacon piled high on a bed of tomato and lettuce, complimented by the crunchy toast and creamy mayonnaise. However, on this particular day, all I wanted to do was put a fried egg inside. Why? I have no idea, but I am glad that I did. The resulting sandwich was perfection. The still soft yolk combined with the sandwich in a harmonious symphony of texture and flavors.
So why is it called the Sunrise BLT? Well, as I looked at the sandwich, I thought the perfectly cooked egg looked like a beautiful sunrise on the bed of deliciousness. Whether you are wanting something unique for breakfast, lunch or dinner, give this a try. I am sure glad I did!
