My Beloved Egg and Cheese

Someone just recently asked me to name my favorite food of all time. That's a big question. At first I felt a surprising amount of pressure to come up with something impressive—something that would wow their pants off—but then, after I took a step back, I realized that my favorite food is actually quite humble in nature. My heart is eternally devoted to the egg and cheese sandwich. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It would be my last meal. One might say I'm a connoisseur.

One of my favorite incarnations of the classic egg and cheese sandwich is this Italian-inspired slice of perfection. It's a great meal for brunch or a simple dinner. It couldn't be simpler to make: delicately poached eggs served over garlic-smeared bread smothered in marina sauce and topped with parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. Need I say more? It is beyond divine, good for the soul, and exactly what you should make when you need to smile from somewhere deep inside.
