To make chive butter, cream together butter and chives. (Yield: 12 tablespoons)
Heat oven to 375°F. Spread potatoes on an oiled sheet pan in one layer; sprinkle with salt, pepper and a little olive oil. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until fork-tender and lightly browned. (Yield: about 3 pounds)
For each serving, to order, spread 1 1/2 teaspoons chive butter on one side of 2 slices of bread. Place bread buttered side down. Place 3 slices cheese on 1 slice of bread, top with 2 ounces roasted potatoes and 2 slices bacon.. Place open-face sandwich on a hot sheet pan and place in 450°F oven about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is barely browned. Cook 1 egg over-easy on a griddle or nonstick pan. Place egg on top of bacon; close sandwich with second slice of bread. Place in oven for 30-60 seconds or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
