Breakfast Sandwich #159 - Almost Forgotten Salami Sandwich

Sandwich: Lab Sandwich - English Muffin, chicken egg, hard salami, white cheddar, avocado, mild pepper rings, red onion
Date: May 11, 2020

Somehow I forgot about Sandwich #159 and went right to #160 so things are a little out of order but I couldn't just leave #159 off of the list so I'm backtracking a bit. It's going to be OK.

Hard salami and other non-breakfast sausages are underutilized on breakfast sandwiches. They have the desired salty and fatty components and in proper hands can make for an exceptional sandwich. It can also be wasted when handled by amateurs but we can't really blame the sausage in these specific instances. It will not surprise you that we have messed around with alternative breakfast sausages in the lab, sometimes with success and sometimes to a somewhat shameful conclusion. That's fine. We have to take some risks here, nobody wants to hear about bacon all the time. 

It's pretty even though the top looks much bigger than the bottom.

The Sandwich - If I recall properly this sandwich was the result of me being awake very early on a Monday and desiring a breakfast sandwich. I then took stock of what I had on hand, got a little creative, and here we are.

The Result - I made and ate this sandwich almost 7 weeks ago. I'm not going to sit here and breakdown the flavors and textures of this sandwich at this point, but I know it was delicious. I know the egg was cooked nicely and it was a gooey mess. I know I have yet to regret adding red onion or avocado to a sandwich. And I know that hard salami is a great meat for a breakfast sandwich.
