If you like eggs and bacon then this is it .A perfect sandwich . I cannot imagine that an egg sandwich can have soo much flavour in it. It was really late in the night and only my elder daughter and i were awake (as she has to study for her exams ). I was just lazing around reading a few recipes and enjoying some me time and then i read this recipe and i had to just had to make it. I was not ready to wait till morning .I literally ran to the kitchen dragging my daughter along and there we made the most delicious midnight snack. It was everything that Deb (of smitten kitchen) had said it would be, a perfect marriage between French bistro salad and American-style grab-and-go egg sandwich.
