  • 1 brioche bun, split
  • 1 cage-free egg


  1. Toss arugula and lemon dressing in small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat griddle. Spread butter evenly over cut sides of the bun. Place bun on hot griddle, cut-side-down. Toast about 2 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside.
  3. Butter and heat a nonstick skillet. Fry egg over-easy. After flipping, immediately place Grand Cru® on the exposed side and let melt.
  4. Spread mayonnaise on bottom of the reserved bun. Place 2 bacon slices shaped like an X on bun bottom. Top with egg. Spread bun top with mashed avocado. Arrange reserved arugula salad over egg. Close sandwich, placing top bun over. Skewer sandwich with a bamboo stick, if desired.
