Greasy Fried Pork Sandwich
This one kind of makes me chuckle.
I low-carbed for years, without a functioning microwave. Thus, I'd never had a "one-minute muffin". I knew of them and completely respected their popularity, but I'd simply never had one. I had no way to make one! Finally, I moved into an apartment that had a functioning one. It finally occurred to me that I should give one a shot! I did! It was everything I'd ever hoped it would be and more! The first one I had was simple, with just a bit of sweetener and cinnamon. Heaven in a minute! I tinkered with it and finally made the cheddar rolls, which I used on sliders.
Then, one day, just sort of playing around, I had this desire for a deep and greasy, fried pork sandwich. I don't know why. I just wanted something wonderful and amazing, but that felt bad ... dirty ... wrong. What I came up with is nothing short of spectacular right! It's little more than a blend of basic square one-minute muffin, which is then split it half, loaded with a bit of ham and crispy bacon, and then dipped into an egg bath. From there, it's fried like French toast!

- 3 slices deli ham
- 3 slices bacon pre-cooked and crispy!
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbsp cream heavy whipping
- 1 tbsp bacon fat or butter
- salt and pepper to taste
In a flat bottomed glass or china bowl (preferably square and about the surface area of sandwich bread), mix the ingredients for your muffin. Microwave this for 60 to 90 seconds on high. Let the bread sit for a further 60 seconds. Remove from the microwave and slice into two halves (a top and a bottom).
Line the bottom with ham and bacon. Place the top on the sandwich.
In a separate bowl (I used a pie tin), whisk your egg and cream, with a little salt and pepper.
Add your sandwich to the egg mixture and coat it evenly, flipping it over and pushing it into the egg mixture, so that the bread absorbs the egg, like a sponge. May take a few minutes, but just keep flipping it. Eventually, most of it gets absorbed and you have a nice egg coated sandwich.
Heat a skillet or sauté pan over medium-low heat.
Add your bacon fat or butter and swirl it around. Add your sandwich to the pan and allow it to turn golden brown on one side. Flip it and cook the other side. Turn the heat down to low and allow it to cook for about 4 to 6 minutes on either side, until it's cooked through.
Cut into tasty pieces and eat!
