Chef Telmo Faria reviews Farmer's Breakfast sandwich at The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen
$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Deli/Sandwich Shop | American
"Any time you can get an entire meal between 2 toasted slices of sourdough bread you're off to a great start. Melted cheese, crispy bacon, potatoes, and a perfectly cooked over medium egg...what more can you ask for ? A dash of hot sauce perfects it!"
