1Gosh I love The Piggery. It’s the most sensational, sustainable, unadulterated, varied deli meat counter I’ve encountered. It’s also a nice bang for my buck compared to the generic products at the grocery store! The butcher told me that although 1 lb. of Piggery bacon seems $1 or $2 more costly at the Piggery, you actually get more bacon when you cook it than 1 lb. of less expensive Oscar Meyer bacon from the supermarket. The reason is that mass-produced bacon is cured with preservatives and nitrates, and perhaps even a blend of other meats; when it cooks, it shrinks much smaller in size. (Not to mention, the taste pales in comparison to bacon from a place like the Piggery). Anyway, we’re not talking about bacon. We’re talking about Piggeroni! A spicy, delicious, pepperoni for pizzas, pastas, sandwiches and more!



Piggeroni Sandwich, with Sheep’s Milk Feta, Basil, and Farm-Fresh Egg

  • Prep Time: 7 minutes
  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 1 sandwich


  • Olive oil – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Egg – 1 farm fresh egg
  • Sheep’s milk feta – 1 tablespoon or so of sheep’s milk feta
  • Pepperoni – 4 slices peperoni
  • Basil – 1 or 2 leaves of basil, torn into pieces
  • Salt – Sea salt to taste
  • Black pepper – Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Multi-grain bread – Two slices of multi-grain bread, toasted


  1. In a small non-stick saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Cook the egg sunny side up. I like to cover the pan with a lid to encourage baking the egg over frying it.
  3. When the yolk is your desired gooeyness or firmness, sprinkle the cheese on top and return the lid for 2 minutes so that it melts.
  4. Remove the pan from heat. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper.
  5. Put the pepperoni on one slice of toasted multi-grain bread, and top with the egg and feta cheese.
  6. Sprinkle basil last, and close the sandwich.
