The Uncle Gary

By the time you’re reading this, we will be halfway across the country on our way to Columbus.  To move into my parents basement.


I know how cool I am.  I am living every adults dream.  Let’s be in our late 20s and move into our parents house. And since we are no longer in Colorado, I knew I had to master my favorite breakfast spot’s signature sandwich.

Hi Rise is an unassuming neighborhood spot Brian and I spent practically every Saturday morning frequenting.  It’s urban and has some good people watching, but mostly they make kick ass sandwiches.


The Uncle Gary, to be exact. It has this mustard sauce, and gooey gouda cheese.  I know, that’s enough on a sandwich alone, but it also has eggs, canadian bacon and caramelized onions.

Hey there lily, let’s guild you.

So one of my last mentions was to figure out how to make this on my own so I wouldn’t my the Uncle Gary after our departure.  Mission accomplished.

In a saute pan, cook the onions on low in the butter for 20-30 minutes, until caramelized.  Remove from the pan and cook the Canadian bacon over medium heat until crispy.  Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel. Combine the honey, dijon and a little salt and pepper.  Mix well and set aside.  Toast the english muffin. Fry the egg over medium low heat.  Top with cheese until it melts.  Place the canadian bacon, egg, gouda, caramelized onions and honey mustard sauce on the toasted muffin.
