Shopsin's Breakfast Sandwich

This sandwich originally took place on 2/13/2010.

I like going to Shopsins, but it's often a pain to eat there. They are only open Tuesday through Saturday, and it gets crazy busy after 10 am (they open at 9 am, 9:30 am on Saturdays). One day I had a terrible craving for one of their sandwiches, but wasn't going to be able to make it out to Shopsins for weeks. So I decided to take matters into my own hands.

The object of the craving was the Wiggly Pete, which is a sandwich composed of 3 poached eggs, pork sausage, jack cheese, scallions, and tomato on garlic bread. I basically recreated the sandwich, except that I fried the eggs (gently, so that the yolks were molten and not solid), and also added cilantro.

It wasn't Mr. Shopsins' sandwich, but I think it addressed the craving pretty well.
