Forget one a day, in Los Angeles, you could easily eat three sandwiches a day. And in this alternate universe of hero, sub, and panino bliss, each day would start with a breakfast sandwich, that eye-opening combination of egg, cheese, maybe a little meat, or a few vegetables thrown in for good measure.
The key to a good egg sandwich is of course the egg—it must be perfectly cooked and in symbiotic harmony with the other ingredients. And while all sandwiches should be well-composed, since these are often the first thing you eat all day, these AM eats carry a special burden, setting the pace for the rest of the day's dining.
