In memory of Randy "Macho Man" Savage. If you don't have a Macho appetite, don't even bother! This beast is a mixture of 3 American classics; Macho Man, grilled cheese sandwiches, and eggs in a hole sandwich. This creation isn't mine, I found it (then slightly modified it) on the Serious Eats website. If you're serious about your food like they are, go check 'em out at www.seriouseats.com
Step 1: What you'll need
You'll need the following to make the Macho Man's Grilled Cheese.
2 slices of bread
2 eggs (if you only want one, just make a hole in one piece of bread)
2 slices of cheese. I used chipotle jack slices and some shredded cheddar
2 slices salami
Real bacon bits
Step 2: Cook your potatoes
I'm a BIG fan of twice cooked potatoes. Usually I'll bake or boil the night before and cook again the next day. This is not mandatory but good if you have the time.
Peel the potatoes (if u prefer) then slice. Boil the potatoes about 10 minutes or until knife or fork easily pierces the center. Refrigerate until next day or cool down with cold water if using immediately.
Step 3: Fry the taters
The potatoes have been precooked so this is just to get that crispy outside that makes fried potatoes so darn tasty. Heat some butter on your cooking surface. When it's melted and hot, add your potato slices. I seasoned mine with salt and pepper at first, then added Cajun spice. I also threw in some minced garlic and added a little more butter as needed.
When you've reached desired crispiness, flip potatoes to cook the other side. When they start crisping, move them off to the side.
While the potatoes were cooking, I chopped up some salami and bacon to add to the sandwich. I prefer chopping them otherwise a whole piece of salami or bacon can get ripped out in one bite. I also completed the next step while the potatoes were crisping.
