What’s this? “Its a Becky. Try it, you’ll like it,” my future husband insists. He tells me what Becky stands for: Bacon, Egg, Cheese, Ketchup, and Yellow Mustard, on a sesame seed bun.
“Oh, Okay” I said, pretending like that sounded good, not weird. I reluctantly took a bite, trying to look cute and not smudge my lipstick as he watched me. Ketchup and mustard? What the…
“Well, what do you think!? Awesome huh?” he insists again.
Surprisingly, it was awesome- he was right. Who knew something off a food truck in middle of nowhere Carrisa Plains California could be so delish. Five years later, we still stop at Larry & Mike’s Tin Can for a Becky.
While in Texas for 5 solid months, I got a craving for a Becky. I was also missing our perfect Cali avocados. So, I made a Becky, then added ranch and avocado to it (because ranch and avocado make anything Californian, duh dude).
So, technically it’s a B.E.C.K.Y.A.R. but that doesn’t work, so “California Becky” it shall be. It may look weird, but I promise, it is AMAZING.
Try it, you’ll like it!
- Sesame seed bun
- 3 strips fried bacon
- 1 fried egg
- 1 slice colby Jack cheese
- Ranch dressing
- 1/2 of an avocado, cut into slices
Fry the bacon in a skillet to your crispy or floppy liking. Remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Turn heat to medium low, crack an egg in the bacon grease and fry, again, to your liking (I like them runny, FYI). Toast the bun, spread on ketchup and mustard on one side, and ranch on the other. Stack bacon, egg, avocado, and cheese in the bun, and you are done!
