Harley Quinn's Egg Sandwich

So I'm currently obsessed with Birds of Prey, the new Harley Quinn film. 

And while I'm searching online for sequinned jackets, I'm schnaffling up one of these. 

If you've seen the film, you'll know the scene. Hungover Harley Quinn's gazing longingly as Sal, the sandwich shop owner, fixes her up one of these bad boys. I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More is playing in the background as the bacon and egg sizzles and the layers of cheese are placed on top, and just a dash of hot sauce, not too much - Harley wants to taste the cheese. 


This is my version. It's gluten free (I've used Schar's gluten free ciabatta rolls). It's packed with gooey, salty spiciness and you will LOVE it. 

Fry the eggs in the fat left behind by the bacon - I've used the thinnest smoked bacon I can find - the eggs will take on the saltiness. Flip 'em and stack up in your warmed roll. Squeeze over a little of your favourite hot sauce - this is sriracha. And I've used a good mature cheddar, sliced and laid over the eggs as they finish cooking to go all melty. Harley's has American processed cheese but I can't get over the ingredients in those, so good cheddar it is all the way. 

Try it. You'll never eat a plain bacon and egg sandwich again. 

Harley Quinn's Egg Sandwich
Serves 4
4 Schar gluten free ciabatta rolls, or your favourite bread rolls
A drizzle of olive oil 
8 slices thin, smoked streaky bacon
4 eggs, free range/organic
4 thin slices of cheddar cheese
sriracha, or hot sauce, for serving

If you're using Schar rolls, heat them up in the oven as instructed on the pack, take them out and let them cool. Slice in half and place on a plate. 

Heat the oil in a small frying pan and fry the bacon, in batches, turning over until crisp. Move to a plate for a few minutes while you get on with frying the eggs. 

Add a little more oil if needed and fry the eggs for a minute or two one one side and then flip them over to finish cooking on the other side. Quickly take a spatula and slide it under the egg and flip it back over. You want it a bit runny, it adds to the flavour. Immediately lay the cheese slices over the eggs in the pan and then turn off the heat. 

Start to build your sandwich. Place the bacon on the bottom of your roll, then add the egg (the cheese should have started to melt by now) and then daub with hot sauce. Place the other half of your roll on top and each hot. 

Have you made this recipe? Have you watched the film? Are you searching online for sequinned clothes and dangly earrings like me? Let me know in the comments below, and share any pics you take on Instagram, tagging me @joromerofood. I'd love to see!
