Fried eggs are not only meant for leisurely Sunday mornings. They also make a great lunch or dinner time treat. When we are feeling lazy and hungry, we whip up some fried egg sandwiches. They are really easy to make, and can be a complete meal when you add a little mixed green salad, and a nice glass of white wine. I like to use either baguettes or biscuits as they add a bit more substance to the meal, then boring (yawn) bread. Then I add slivers of avocado, pancetta chips, and a gorgeous fried egg. A dressing of sriracha and olive oil wraps the eggy dish together.
