Imagine the yolk oozing into the pork juices, and the toasted baguette soaking it all in. Feel the crunch of the edge of the egg white and the crispy edges of the bark from the pulled pork as they mingle together in your mouth... yes, this; THIS was a good sammich!
You will need:
- A generous plug of pulled pork
- An egg (sunny-side up)
- Some good bread (Ciabatta, or French Baguette rolls work well)
Runny yolks freak some people out. This sammich is not for those people! While the FDA would like nothing better than to snatch this egg right out of your hand for merely THINKING about eating the yolk raw, I plan to take my chances. If you're super freaked-out, you an always buy pasteurized eggs or you could cook it a little more. I HIGHLY recommend a runny yolk though, as it's flavor really enhances the pork. The first step to the perfect sunny-side egg is a good egg pan.
Slide the egg right out of the pan and onto your sammich. Don't worry if you break the yolk during the process, you'll break it anyway once you take your first bite. If you've done this correctly, the top bun will soak in some yolk while the bottom bun soaks in some pork fat, When you bite into the sammich, you'll feel some crunch from the toasted surface, the edge of the egg, and the bark on the pork. Your tongue will be coated with egg yolk and pork fat while your teeth pull that glorious pork apart and mix it all together! Mmm MMM, Sho' am good!
