In less than six weeks, I will be 29. TWENTY-NINE! Only one more year until I’m 30! Yikes. While I no longer anxiously await my birthday, the other main thing that has changed, is that my body does not rally from a night out like it used to. Not even close. Now I wake up and feel like I just inhabited the body of a 80 year old. It’s super fun.
Last weekend, as I was sadly watching my Seahawks lose, I was nursing my hangover and drowning my sorrows in what I can only call the Hangover Cure Breakfast Sandwich. It was quite possibly the best sandwich I’ve ever had. My fiance and I had stumbled upon this non-descript bar inappropriately named “Dive” that was just down the street from us. We had walked by it a million times but never gone in because it looked seedy, and the name threw me off. This bar was no dive. It was super cute on the inside and had a full restaurant menu. The food choices were insane.
Naturally, being hungover, I went for the sandwich titled “Hangover”. It was a cheesy bacon-y masterpiece. I’m not sure if the sandwich cured my hangover, or the beers I was simultaneously drinking, but either way, it was good enough to forget about how terrible I felt.
Thus, I must share this awesome sandwich with you.
Hangover Cure Breakfast Sandwich
- 1 Kaiser Roll
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp pesto sauce
- 1 slice provolone cheese
- 1 piece prosciutto
- 1 slice bacon
- 5-10 spinach leaves
- 1 slice tomato (or 4 sliced cherry tomatoes)
- Toast your Kaiser roll (optional).
- Cook your slice of bacon. I like to cook mine in the microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds. If you choose to cook it this way, put it on a plate and wrap it in a paper towel. I like my bacon crispy, so if you do not, I would start with a minute and put it in for 15 second increments there after.
- Spread the pesto sauce on the bun - 1 tbsp of sauce on each side.
- Layer the spinach, and tomato on the top side of the bun.
- Place the prosciutto, bacon and cheese on the bottom side of the bun.
- Heat the bottom of the bun in the microwave for about 20 seconds to melt the cheese.
- Crack the egg in a pan and cook over medium heat until the bottom is set.
- Slide the egg on to the cheese side of the bun, and place the top on.
