Nothing cures a hangover like a bacon and egg sandwich! This is my current favorite recipe: it's a mixture of bacon, onion, and eggs piled high on bread. It's simple but absolutely delicious. The fluffy eggs complement the sweet caramelized onions and salty crispy bacon that's surrounded by warm bread with a soft exterior and crunchy interior. For a little kick, add Tapatío or your preferred hot sauce. The original recipe calls for a loaf of ciabatta, however, you can use whatever bread you have on hand. Also, feel free to adapt the method to suit your needs. Vegetarian? Omit the bacon. Don't have aged cheddar on hand? Substitute parmesan or monterey jack.
