After watching Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn in theaters and on VOD, I ended each viewing with the same thought. Where can I get myself one of those delicious egg sandwiches? Luckily actor Bruno Oliver, who plays short order cook Sal in BoP, made a video for Variety walking us through what goes into that magical bodega breakfast sandwich.

Oliver rehearsed his scene several times saying, “It was definitely one of the oddest preparations as an actor I’ve done, … I spent the night destroying my kitchen making egg sandwiches over and over and over again.” Sal made the sandwich himself, but relied on a catering chef for the close-up shots of sandwichy goodness.

The sandwich is a simple bacon, egg, and cheese served on a ciabatta roll with a touch of hot sauce. Oliver didn’t realize how important the sandwich was remarking, “I really didn’t understand the place the egg sandwich had in the movie until I saw it.” Needless to say, he was surprised and delighted by the numerous think-pieces written for the breakfast.

“I’ve read a lot about the sandwich as a metaphor for Harley’s recovery,” Oliver said. “I’ve read a lot that refer to Sal as the only male in the movie who doesn’t screw her over.”

If you’re looking for a delicious way to pass the time during this quarantine, we can hardly think of a better treat. Egg sandwich, we will love you forever!
