4 Levels of Breakfast Sandwiches: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - amateur Emily, home cook Lorenzo, and professional chef Frank from the Institute of Culinary Education - to wake up our taste buds with an egg breakfast sandwich. Once each of them had presented their creation, we asked food scientist Rose to weigh-in on their choices. Which one of these breakfast sandwiches are you going to recreate this weekend? After this episode of 4 Levels, you might make all three.

Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/sausage-breakfast-sandwich

    I would eat level 2 because: 1 has too much bread 3 has too much texture 3 also looks like it came from McDonald’s (cheese, egg, patty, tomato) But 2 is the prefect amount

    For the first time the lv1 chef's food looks way more appetising than lv2 and 3. Lorenzo's one makes no sense, it's a full meal packed between two pieces of bread. Frank's one probably tastes great but it's not too eye catching.
