The BECO'wich

Every once in awhile, you stumble upon something truly great. Inspiration is the product of need, and today there was a need in my house. This need was created the night before, during an evening of good timin' and laugh havin'. This need was a hangover. And, in my opinion, this hangover just inspired a potentially award winning creation. The BECO'wich. Bread





Onion, diced

Hot Sauce


Start by frying up some bacon. Remove and place on a paper towel. Drain all but a little of the grease from the pan and saute the onion. When soft, also place on a paper towel (see a pattern here?).

Fry an egg in the bacon/onion grease. My husband prefers his yolks broken so there aren't any runny yellow surprises, and I aim to please. Season your egg a little while it's cooking.

While the egg is frying, heat up another skillet (I love my cast iron grill pan) and put on two pieces of buttered bread. Put some cheese on one slice, along with the bacon so it can start to get melty. When the egg is finished, pat the grease off with a paper towel and put on the other piece of bread, then top with the onions.

Now for the active ingredient: hot sauce.

When it's all melty and gooey, put some mayo on it, smash it together, and serve it to your poor, hurting husband. He will love you forever for it.
