Breakfast is a big deal in the Borgognone house. Every Saturday and Sunday is the same story: egg sandwiches on Saturdays; bagels and donuts on Sundays. I should mention that we also are mildly obsessed with eggs. Usually in one breakfast sitting, there are five different types of eggs on the table at once — Nonna's Eggs in Purgatory, my father's cheesy scramble, as well as sunny-side up, broccoli rabe omelettes, and then there's the sandwich.
A while back, my mother and I had amazing egg sandwiches that were so outrageously expensive (but well worth it!) that we vowed never to spend that much on a breakfast sandwich again, especially one that we could master at home. So we got to experimenting and here's our baby, our favorite part of Saturday mornings. I should also mention that the record is three sandwiches in one sitting that's held by my beastly brother Sal who uses the "I'm a growing boy" excuse.

It's hard to imagine a way to improve on the simplistic perfection of a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. But for those nontraditionalists willing to branch out a bit, adding a fried egg elevates this sandwich to a whole new level. And when you think about it, eggs are an even better example of simplistic perfection than a BLT — just fry one up and this single ingredient will add extra levels of flavor, texture, and body to the dish. The addition of homemade garlic mayo doesn't hurt either.

Makes a thick spreadable paste similar to the Loma Linda Sandwich Spread that has been discontinued or Humus. The texture will firm in the fridge. I like it on home made bread with a dill pickle but it is also an excellent cracker spread. Seasonings are optional and amounts can be varied. You can try other nut butters if you're not into peanuts.
This is one of the Spamherd's favourite sandwich fillings. He eats it when the Spanimals that he herds are having their midday siesta. (The Spanimals - distant relatives of the North American Lesser Spotted Haggis - are of Spanish descent and siestas are a tradition where they come from.)
This is a recipe that we used in Pennsylvania for kids birthday parties. I remember my parents grinding the bologna in a old fashion meat grinder. They spread it on white bread and cut the sandwiches into triangles. Of course, we also had cake and ice cream.
