No-bread Bacon and Egg Sandwich

This bacon and egg sandwich is the love child of a hangover and frittata. True story. I used to eat a LOT of sandwiches. Or toast. Or toasted sandwiches. They were easy. And cheap. I didn’t know any better. I don’t tend to think back too much on food like that; it was bland, boring […]
