The Best Breakfast Sandwich

While on vacation Kristin and I thought that we would make food for our hosts. So the one I remembered to take pictures of was breakfast.

Breakfast is by far the most important meal of the day. To treat it as such we went looking for a good breakfast sandwich and came across one claiming to be the world's greatest sandwich. If you have ever seen the movie "Spanglish" with Adam Sandler, you'll know what I'm talking about. For that movie he has is very own special sandwich. The website where we found the information about the sandwich added an extra twist to it by adding avocado (which of course is the best thing since slice bread...seriously I don't know who thought to eat it first but I could live off of it). The sandwich itself is a basic BLT with cheese, egg and avocado. It was fantastic and we all loved it. I am adapting the recipe to fit how we made it of course.  

Ummmm...Yummy....My mouth is drooling!
