I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
The Best Breakfast Sandwich

The Best Breakfast Sandwich


  • 1/4 thinly sliced red onion
  • Butter
  • Olive oil
  • 2-3 ounces thinly sliced pastrami
  • 1 egg
  • 1 large slice of cheese, I used smoked chipotle gouda
  • 2 cup fresh spinach
  • 2 sourdough bread
  • Shoestring fries, optional, wait – not optional
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons garlic aioli, see recipe below
    Garlic Aioli
  • Makes about 1/2 cup
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley


  1. Cook onions in about 1 teaspoon each butter & oil over low-medium heat cook beautifully softened and beginning to color – about 10 minutes
  2. Transfer onions to a small dish, add a little more oil to the pan and add spinach – cook over low/medium heat stirring well until completely wilted, about 3 or 4 minutes – season with salt & pepper and set aside
  3. Toast or grill bread until golden brown
  4. While bread toasts, cook egg & pastrami separately until egg is cooked the way you like it (over easy is ideal) and pastrami is warmed through, adding cheese to the top when you flip it over
  5. Build: spread aioli on both pieces of bread, then to one piece add spinach, onions, cheesy pastrami, egg, fries and top with 2nd piece of toast
  6. Eat :)
