I also love fried egg sandwiches. My preference is for white bread, easy over egg, slice of american cheese, mayo, and some salt and pepper. It is hard to beat this simple treat.
When I was about 15 or 16 (and asked my Dad, for an increase in my $ .75/wk. allowance
), my hard working and enterprising Dad, did what every good Dad should do. He found me a job!
It was way out in rural NJ, a little deli type, mom and pop place, with a small snack bar, and dining room. It was the first and only job I had as a waitress. To this day, I cannot understand where their customers came from. It was near Sergeantsville, NJ. From there, I went to nursing school.
Anyway, the couple who owned the place were Lithuanian and very sweet. They alway made me a lunch, and one of my favorites was the "fried egg sandwich". Nothing too special, just buttered white toast, and a fried egg, with a runny yolk, and lots of butter, salt and pepper. Not even any garden goodies. I thought I died and went to heaven. Have not thought of those days, and that taste, until you are all writing about it. Thanks for the memories.
I am now 58 and a RN, and should probably be wiser.....but that's what I think I will make myself for breakfast, in the AM, One cannot live by health, alone.
Thanks for reminding me of quieter, simpler and more gentle times.
