When I think of a bacon and egg sandwich, a greasy hangover cure almost always comes to mind. Not so with this elegant, everyday recipe. It elevates the bacon and egg sandwich by serving it open faced on top of crusty bread slathered in a mustard-mayonnaise. What I love most about this dish is that it uses both soft-boiled and hard-boiled eggs. Thus, the sandwich has a thick white texture and runny yolk drizzle, too. Are you intrigued?
