This roasted porchetta egg sandwich is the ultimate breakfast or brunch with flavorful porchetta, Chipotle Aioli, melted cheese, and a gooey fried egg on a bun or bagel.
Servings: 4
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp Unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 4 sandwich buns
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 pieces eggs (large)
  • cup Aioli
  • 4 Porchetta (1½ inch thick slices of warmed Porchetta - check the recipe at the "notes" section)

Garnish:

  • handful of arugula or spinach leaves

Chipotle Aioli :

  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp chipotle chiles in adobo (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 tsp garlic (minced)
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 4 tsp lime juice (fresh)
  • sea salt & ground black pepper (adjust according to taste)

Instructions:

  • Turn on the broiler. Spread the butter on both halves of the sandwich buns and stick them under the broiler, sliced-side up, until lightly toasted.
  • (Or, toast the unbuttered buns, sliced sides down, in a well buttered cast-iron skillet over medium heat.)
  • Set a large nonstick sauté pan or cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.
  • Break in the eggs and fry until the whites are set and starting to brown on the edges but the yolks are still runny, about 4 to 5 minutes. (The egg whites will be fully cooked, so no need to flip the eggs over.) Remove to a large plate.

Prep the Chipotle Aioli:

  • Mix all the ingredients for Aioli and set aside.

Prep the Buns:

  • Spread the top and bottom of the bun halves with the "Chipotle Aioli".
  • Place a sliced porchetta on each bottom half and set a fried egg on top. Distribute the arugula or spinach on top of the eggs and serve warm.
