Eggs and cheese go together like peas and carrots where, yes, you can sometimes throw bacon into the mix and the sum is greater than the parts, especially when you're hungover. But just an egg and cheese on its very own makes me happy. Throw it on slightly toasted hearty bread and make the cheese Beecher's Flagship one and you got yourself a brunch sandwich.
I stopped by the New York outpost of Seattle's great cheese store, Beecher's, yesterday for one of my many side projects in an absolutely famished state. Hangry, crazy hangry is more like it. I thought I'd get a grilled cheese, but I felt I needed something more. The Caprese with basil and tomato? No. The Turkey with much needed after-run protein? No. Then I spied that you could get their breakfast sandwich all day long. The scrambled egg was spot-on--cooked just to firm with little barely runny spots. The mild cheese was melty goodness. The bread was toasted, but not over-toasted (and from Hot Bread Kitchen to boot). All that was really missing was a nice thick slab or two of bacon. And for $7, it should maybe at least have that option.
