Jiggles, a chef at Franny’s, and I were going for Round 2. Last night, we knocked off Henry Public’s Turkey Leg sandwich, and with the taste of sandwich still on our tongue, we had to have another. Park Slope Baseballers, a summer baseball league in Prospect Park that I created five years ago, started at 12pm leaving us plenty of time to cross one off the list. The Larder is literally across the street from my apartment so this sandwich was on my to-do list for awhile now. Since tomatoes are not yet in season, they replace the tomato with an egg. Yes, I’m still counting it.
This was the most elegant version of your typical breakfast sandwich, and one you don’t feel gross after eating. All of the ingredients were of the highest quality. The fat slabs of bacon were meaty, the lettuce was fresh and crunchy, both complimenting a perfectly cooked egg. The sourdough bread was thick and toasted with a thin layer of mayo on both ends. As per my usual breakfast sandwiches, this one wasn’t greasy or covered in melted cheese. It highlighted the quality of each individual component. All of their sandwiches abide by these same fundamental rules.
Super charged from the sandwich, Jiggles went 4 for 6 with a triple, 2 RBI’s, and an all-star performance in the field. And I went 5 for 6 with two doubles, 4 RBI’s, and some solid fielding at short stop as well. A sandwich and baseball game: every summer Saturday should consist of these two things.
