Prosciutto, Gruyere and Fried Egg Sandwich with Truffle Mayo

I remember growing up my mom used to make me fried egg sandwiches. Like literally a fried egg on bread, and I would dip it in ketchup. Not too classy. However, I was recently at a wine bar in Wichita (I've really come full circle), and they had a fried egg sandwich on the menu. To me that was a sign for me to start eating them again.

This sandwich is a re-creation of the one on The Wine Dive's menu, with a few tweaks. I'm not the biggest bacon-on-a-sandwich fan, so I went for prosciutto for a lighter layer. The other star component here is the truffle mayo. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the truffle sauce from Trader Joes and added it to my regular mayo, but you can find truffle mayo with a quick Google search. It really matures this sandwich, and in combination with the gruyere packs a good punch. You'll definitely feel classy while eating this sammy, even if it's just you in the comfort of your own home in your pajamas.

What do you think? Are you a truffle fan? Did anyone else grow up eating fried egg sandwiches? Let me know!
