Riff On NYC Breakfast Sandwich

Iconic NYC dish that, don’t for a minute think I am trying to recreate. It can’t be recreated. What I am doing is reaching for nostalgia in a time of wow and want.

What I have on hand is focaccia. That will take the place of the lowly potato or other starch bun with the original.

I was introduced to this delicacy by my co-worker in Pea Pack, New Jersey. ” You want an Egg Sandwich?” What the hell, I don’t know, sure.

Wrapped in paper, then in foil, soggy gooey mess… a thing of beauty.
