California-Style Fried Egg Sandwich

Fried egg sandwiches are my husband’s go-to lunch. Seriously, I think he could eat a fried egg sandwich or grilled cheese every day and frozen pizza for dinner. And occasionally nachos. Now usually he just makes his own lunch with an egg and cheese, and maybe some pepperoni. When I want a fried egg sandwich, I want it California-style. Guacamole spread makes any sandwich better.

And I’m amazed what a delicious and satisfying sandwich this is! I really do love guacamole on a sandwich. This guacamole is simple to make with a little red onion, salt and pepper. And the avocado, of course.

Although I think hard is the way to fry an egg sandwich, you can make it softer if you’re prepared for messy dribbles.

Is this a glorified egg sandwich or a glorified grilled cheese? Provolone is the best cheese for this combo of ingredients. Mild and melty.

And then we have the tomato! You need it nice and ripe for a perky sandwich. I choose California-style Fried Egg Sandwich over Mutton, Lettuce and Tomato. I think Miracle Max would rank it right up there with true love if he could taste it.

With this basic ingredients list, you hardly need a recipe, but I’ve included it here anyway. Sometimes I use more avocado spread in each sandwich to make three sandwiches. I recently tried to use all of it in two sandwiches, and that was a little too much.
