First featured in the movie "Spanglish" starring Adam Sandler as a late-night snack, this recipe combines ingredients from three popular sandwiches: bacon, lettuce and tomato; fried egg and grilled cheese. You'll want to eat it right away, while the egg is still warm. "Spanglish" writer and director James L. Brooks calls it "The World's Greatest Sandwich" — we'll let you decide.
In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.2.
Set the Monterey Jack slices on 1 piece of toast. Spread the mayonnaise on the other slice of toast, then top with the bacon, tomato and lettuce.3.
In a small, nonstick skillet, melt the butter. Add the egg and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp around the edges, about 4 minutes; the yolk should still be runny. Slide the egg onto the lettuce; close the sandwich and eat right away!
