My buddy Ryan sent me the recipe of all recipes, the Doug. The Doug is a breakfast sandwich thats named after its creator. Supposedly, it took many years to perfect and the recipe was kept secret for many years. Ryan being a lover of bacon wanted to share it with the masses, so with out any more rambling here are the steps.
- A large frying pan is key.
- Flatten a palm sized portion of Bob Evan’s Maple sausage into a patty and fry it, turning it over when necessary (until it’s cooked all the way through).
- Next to the patty crack an egg and let it fry.
- If the pan is big enough you can also throw a couple pieces of bacon in the mix. If not then throw them on and cook them whenever you have room on the pan.
- Once the egg is cooked fairly well (but not burnt) break open the yolk and flip it over to cook the other side. Continue to rotate it as needed, until it is cooked to your desire.
- Put an onion flavored Lenders bagel in the toaster and toast it while you finish up the egg, sausage and bacon.
- As the egg finishes cooking put a slice of pepper-jack cheese on top of it.
- Once the bagel is done toasting put the egg (with now melted cheese) sausage and bacon on it (in that order).
- Chop up some onions and sautee them in the leftover grease.
- Throw a slice of maple ham on the frying pan and flip it over until it is cooked on both sides.
- Top the sandwich with the cooked ham and sautéed onions.
- A bit of hot sauce or barbeque sauce or ranch dressing is optional.
When Ryan was in college he used to eat these all the time. Then once he graduated and got a real job with benefits he went to the doctors to get checked out. They check his cholesterol the doctor was like “Whoa this is high”! The doctor then asked him if he know why(Note: He’s a skinny guy like me). Ryan knew why but played dumb and said, “I don’t know, thats strange”?
The morel of this story is, the Doug is a powerful sandwich and should be eaten in moderation.
