Tomato Egg Ricotta Sandwich
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
Though loathe to admit finding inspiration at McDonald’s, I admit that I was inspired by the Arrabbiata Ricotta Chicken Burger (see 13.131 Arrabbiata Ricotta Chicken Burger). To my standard tomato & fried egg sandwich, I tried adding a thin layer of ricotta cheese, applied on one side of the bread (mayo + mustard on the other), kinda like a condiment.
It was okay. Made the texture somewhat chalky, but the delicate flavor went well with the tomato. I won’t do it again, at least not with this sandwich.
