- Going out Saturday mornings were all about Scooby-Doo. Every single time I'd watch it, those sandwiches made me so hungry. So now that I'm an adult, or whatever that means, I decided to make my own grown-up version of a Scooby-Doo sandwich. Let me show you how to make it. Let's go ahead and start by making our sun-dried tomato aioli. This is gonna become one of your favorite things to make. You will never have just regular mayo after this. In a blender, I have some sun-dried tomatoes. These have so much flavor, full of umami. I'm gonna go ahead and add some mayo, one garlic clove, some lemon juice, and a little bit of water just to thin it out a little bit. And then go ahead and add some salt and a little pepper. Blend it up. Perfect. Look at this right here, guys. Oh, man. Once you make the sun-dried tomato aioli, you're gonna want to put it on all of your sandwiches. I've never seen Shaggy or Scooby add a fried egg to their sandwich, but this is my version of it, and I love a fried egg with any sandwich. We want to crank up our stove to like medium heat, and we're gonna add some oil to the pan, a few tablespoons, enough to fry, and that's gonna get hot pretty quickly. We're gonna go ahead and fry our egg. Gently put your egg in the oil. One more. And if you notice, I'm not seasoning the egg. I season them afterwards. And to get that perfect well-cooked fried egg, what you do is you grab a little bit of oil and you baste the top of your eggs. This happens super-fast so you want to keep an eye on it. We'll pull this one off, set this on a plate. Other egg. And this is the part where we season. So lightly season with some salt, and if you're a pepper and egg kind of person, this is where you pepper. All right. So, my aioli and my eggs are done. I'm gonna go ahead, grab all the rest of my ingredients out of the fridge, and we're gonna come back and build my sandwich. This is the fun part, guys. So first, I'm gonna start with some toasted bread, and I want to go in with our sun-dried tomato aioli, about a spoonful or so. All right, and now we're gonna do some lettuce, some ham, about two pieces or so, tomato, some cheese, onions, bacon, some avocado slices, 'cause bacon and avocado just go hand in hand, and then a few pickles. Now we're gonna grab another toast and hit it with mustard this time. And then another piece of lettuce. So that's our first layer. You think we're gonna stop there? Oh no no. We're gonna keep going. So again, aioli, my lettuce, ham, tomato, and the cheese. Just gonna go ahead and keep building this up. So onions, tomato, bacon, avocado, pickles, oh my god. I'm gonna hope I'm gonna be able to like eat this all in one bite. Another piece of bread, mustard. Remember that fried egg we did earlier? Yeah, it's going on top. Fried egg. If you're a really big Scooby-Doo fan, you know Shaggy loves his hot sauce. So we're gonna put just a little drizzle of hot sauce, and we're gonna put out last piece of bread on top, and then no Scooby sandwich is done without an olive. There you go guys. There's my version of the Scooby-Doo sandwich. I hope your childhood memories have come to life.
