Movie Food - Egg and Onion Sandwich (From "Harvey")

Movie Food - Egg and Onion Sandwich (From "Harvey")

1 Egg 
2 Tbsp Butter 
2 slices Buttered bread
2 slices Onion (I like thinly sliced, you may prefer thick)
Sprinkle Salt and Pepper to taste 
Ketchup (or spicier) on top

Break egg into bowl, and beat it mercilessly.
Melt butter in pan at medium heat. 
Fry egg, and fold into bread size.
When solid, spatula egg onto bread.
Top with Onion slices, Salt, Pepper, and Ketchup.

An excellent snack. To neutralize onion breath,
eat Parsley. Or make an Egg and Onion Sandwich 
for your girlfriend, so she doesn't notice.

Yummy snack! Good any time.

Harvey? Well I'd better get goin'

Oh, but Marvin, you haven't
finished your egg and onion.

Business before pleasure, Honey.
Even if it's a pleasure bein' with you.
You make a great egg and onion, kid.
A great egg and onion.

This sandwich takes 10 minutes to make, well worth it.

Oh, Doctor, I - I - (stammers) 
Years ago, my mother used to say to me -- 
she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must 
be --' She always called me Elwood.
'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh,
so smart or oh, so pleasant.' Well, for
years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.
And you may quote me."

From the James Stewart picture "Harvey," by Mary Chase, 1950
