A Fried Egg Sandwich
A fried egg sandwich fills the void at any time of day quickly and pleasantly. Theyre seldom seen anymore, though on a recent trip to the Florida Keys, I was surprised to find fried egg sandwiches on many cafe menus, usually adorned with cheese, bacon, ham, or tomatoes, smashed between pieces of insipid toast. While the extras can be great, it's the combination of crunchy toast and a slightly runny egg that is completely satisfying. If youre in the mood, why not drink a sparkling wine? With bubbles and acidity that wrap around food and enliven your mouth, sparkling wines can be for every day, not just for special occasions.

- For robust flavors other than chile, spread your toast with tapenade, Romesco Sauce, Chimichurri Sauce, or Marjoram Pesto.
