Yesterday I hinted at my Dad's cooking skilz with his fabulous bacon waffles...you will never guess what my Dad's other famous food was? Fried Egg Sandwiches. It was a tradition with Dad. Typically my Mom would cook a roast or something Sunday-ish (early years) or we'd go out after church(Captain Nemo's-later years) every Sunday from the time I was in Elementary school until my college years. But Sunday night? Sunday night if we were hungry my Dad would make his special fried egg sandwiches. Or popcorn.
A couple of years ago my sister and I asked him to make us his special sandwiches, and he almost burned the kitchen down, but we did learn the secret to his sandwiches. Miracle Whip.
Our Mom is a strict mayonnaise girl, but Dad HAS TO have his Miracle Whip. And after all those years it was a duh moment. His secret ingredient was the Miracle Whip. That is the taste I'd been searching for.
