Author Notes: One of my favorite breakfasts growing up in New York was a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich from the local delicatessen. It sounds simple enough, but not all are created equal. Here is my "grown-up" version of a favorite

Food52 Review: Even though this kind of combination can seem played-out nowadays, this version was fun and tasted great. I used about half of the sriracha, but feel free to adjust to taste. Fun and easy is always a good combo in my book!Stephanie Bourgeois

Makes: 1 sandwich


  • 2 slices raisin bread
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce

In This Recipe


  1. Lightly toast the raisin bread and spread on the sriracha.
  2. In a 12-inch nonstick frying pan, cook the bacon till crisp. Set aside.
  3. Fry the egg to your liking in a few teaspoons of reserved bacon fat (I prefer over-easy). Layer the cheese on the egg while it is in the pan so the cheese will melt.
  4. Assemble the sandwich. Enjoy
