Fried Egg Sandwich

For as long as I can remember my mom has made the most amazing fried egg sandwich.  Much like the BLT, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich and chicken noodle soup, there is just something about when it is made by my mother that makes it so much better than when I make them.  It is a very simple sandwich, nothing too outrageous, but since I was a child it has long been one of my all-time favorites and definitely falls into the category of "comfort foods".


Here are the cast of characters:
Old Fashioned Sunbeam Bread (no substitutions in my book but if you are a Wonder Bread kind of family then I guess there is nothing I can do about that)
4 slices bacon, fried and crispy
1 egg
 
 Fry the bacon and use about a tablespoon of the bacon grease to fry your egg.  
Bring the skillet to piping hot (that is a technical term by the way) and make sure to swirl the bacon grease around so the entire skillet is covered.  Crack the egg and drop it into the skillet.  Allow to fry for about 2-3 minutes and flip (this is completely dependent on how you like your egg cooked so the cooking time varies).
 
Toast your bread and put two pieces of bacon on each piece of toast.  
Place the egg on one piece of bacon layered toast, flip the other piece on top and you have yourself an official fried egg sandwich.  
My mother likes to add a little butter to her toast and sometimes some mustard to her sandwich but what can I say, I am a traditionalist and like just this basics on this one!
