The Perfect Egg Sandwich, According to Alvin Cailan | Food Skills

  • Published on Jan 8, 2018
  • Egg sandwiches are available at every bodega, cornerstone, and fast-food joint. But at Eggslut, chef Alvin Cailan is turning the everyday breakfast sandwich into a work of art. A cult favorite in L.A., and now available at Chefs Club Counter in NYC, Eggslut’s secret is patience. Eggs and butter are added to a cold pan, and gently stirred on low heat. The result is something soft, smooth, and covered in melted cheese and sriracha mayo. Eggslut’s Fairfax is a must-try for any egg-sandwich enthusiast.

    A lot of people saying how this sandwich is too expensive. Lol you cheap fucks. Rewatch the video and listen to how much time is spent making this piece of art. Food isn’t just food to chefs and cooks. It’s more than that. The onions alone were slow cooked for 8 hours. Cmon guys. You get what you pay for. And even if the sandwich was like 10 bucks, that’s not that expensive 😂 I find that perfect.

      Now that minimum wage is going up, people are REALLY going to be upset when they find out they can no longer get a whole meal for 7 bucks. Times change, expectations need to change with the times, or you are just being lazy and selfish.

    Adding a bit of salt to the eggs while whisking them will help break of the some of the whites to get a more uniform consistency.

    If you want a proper egg sandwich you've got to cook your eggs to an acceptable level not to give the consumer digestive problems. smh

    The eggs still seem to be raw? It looks good but after seeing how the eggs are cooked. It just seems like they should have been cook a bit longer. Maybe it's the butter making them look runny yet?

    Eggs taste good, and are good for you, because they are failed and unfertilized animal non-babies in your mouth and body that give you life where no life was initially given. There is no god, we're all goop. :)

    This seems gross, and it probably costs $10 for that sandwich. Give me 2 over easy eggs on a roll with bacon and American cheese. I'll also take a small coffee, and since I have all this change from my $10, why don't you double that order.

    8 hours to caramelize onions? there's no way that's any better than doing it for 20 minutes the normal way. It's not a tough cut of beef.
