    Inspired by Eggslut's infamous breakfast sandwiches, this recipe for a Bacon, Muenster and Caramelized Onion Egg Sandwich calls for a special egg cooking method that I only recently learned. To be honest, if you would have asked me what a marbleized egg was few months ago, I would have had looked at you with pure confusion.

    Little did I know that this cooking method, that I once referred to as the lazy girls scramble, was actually a thing. Thanks to Vice's awesomefood channel, Munchies, I...MORE now know that the marbleized egg was actually popularized by Eggslut, a super awesome – you guessed it – egg sandwich restaurant in LA.

    I have to admit that I never planned this recipe out... I basically woke up, realized it was National Donut Day via instagram, sprinted to Dunkin Donuts to claim my free donut, went back to my place of work, and made this donut grilled cheese recipe all spur-of-the-moment like.

    To be honest though, this sort of delicacy is pretty perfect for any occasion! The combination of the light and airy donut against the sweet maple glaze, the smokey bacon and the buttery muenster cheese make this sandwich...MORE totally irresistible.

    Crispy bacon, fried green tomatoes, tangy remoulade sauce, and refreshing iceberg lettuce bring this BLT to new heights.

    You may be thinking to yourself, why change something that's already perfect? And I get it - BLTs are basically God's gift to the sandwich world but it's easy to make it even better. You've probably had an upgraded BLT with a runny fried egg or creamy avocado and that's good and all but try swapping out regular sliced red tomatoes for crispy fried green...MORE tomatoes, and BAM! This sandwich just got so, so, SO much better!

    Add some fresh ricotta, nutty parmesan and crispy brussels sprouts and you've got one serious grilled cheese sandwich on your hands.
