Tips and tricks for making the best sandwiches at home.
You can opt for one or two eggs on your egg and cheese at B & H, but there's only one choice for bread: their thick-cut fluffy homemade challah, and that's all the choice you need.
The filling here is pretty standard: eggs ($2.25 for one, $3.25 for two) and American cheese, crisped up will on the griddle with runny yolks. You may want to add a sprinkle of salt, but hey, egg and cheese is a personal thing.
The slabs of challah are cooked gently on the griddle, not enough to toast up, but just so they pick up some hard-won griddle fat that makes the bread's slight sweetness come through more clearly. Even at a late dinner, the challah's pretty fresh, because no matter the hour, B & H is there for you, and this sandwich is one of its simple but satisfying charms.
