The World's Greatest Sandwich

Yesterday, Rick and I made the fried egg sandwich from the movie Spanglish. Adam Sandler plays a chef in the movie, and in one scene, he whips up a sandwich--a sandwich that has come to be known as The World's Greatest Sandwich. Spanglish is not a "food movie" (for those, I recommend Like Water for Chocolate, Eat Drink Man Woman, and Chocolat), but this scene left my mouth watering.

If you rent the movie, there is a great little DVD extra that takes you through the making of the sandwich. For months, I've been planning (and forgetting) to re-rent the movie just for that sandwich recipe. Then yesterday, it hit me. Duh! We have the internet! Someone has surely copied down the recipe and posted it somewhere.

I found the recipe here. We substituted veggie bacon for the real stuff, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

It was fantastic. Thank you, internet!

Man, everywhere I visit today is talking about food and it is making me hungry. Those sound delicious.
