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

    Lorenzo's sandwich is obnoxious.. usually I'm a fan of his, but that's not a breakfast sandwich.. missed the mark big time

    I considered myself a home chef only to find out that I am a total amateur cause I use bagel slices...

    “You don’t want a sandwich where you say oh that was the one good bite” is Level 4 chef-ery!

      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

    Other chefs: normal introduction Frank: In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, He taught me my 9th recipe and enrolled me in his new Institute of Culinary Education.

    Y'all ever run into an ad that lasts so long that you have to go backward in a video a little to remember what just happened in it?

    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.
