Most things I thought were amazing as a kid haven't really held up as an adult. I'm constantly buying my nieces/nephews toys that I loved growing up, and feel like I'm always disappointed (even though they're not). Commercials I thought were brilliant - I'll search for them on YouTube and realize I was an idiot. But this breakfast sandwich.…I mean, I guess I wasn't a small child when I first became obsessed with it. It was almost 20 years ago that I first sunk my teeth into the bread at Big G's Deli in Maine and fell in love. During our recent trip there I brought Abe, and we couldn't stop talking about this food, even days later.
First, there's the potato cake perfection - perfectly golden and seasoned. Not too oily or greasy. They bring ordinary ketchup to another level. And the breakfast sandwich is just grilled bread with eggs - no cheese or meat. I'm sure the addition of both would've sent me into the stratosphere but we were going to be sitting in a car/plane for 9-10 hours; I made the executive decision to show some restraint.
