"Breakfast is by far the best and most important meal of the day. A BLT is a near-perfect breakfast sandwich. Add an egg and you have, in my opinion, a perfect sandwich. Now people have started making breakfast burgers, topped with bacon and an egg, which is another great meal in my book! But , what if you combine the two? ! A BLT&E. " - Christopher Lucchese, Echo Park BLT&E Total time: 1 hour, 10 minutes Servings: 6 Note: From Christopher Lucchese of Echo Park.

"Which wouldja like to try?" booms the smiling guy in the cowboy hat, brandishing a handful of tiny ice cream sampling spoons. Like a magnet, the sweet scent of caramelizing garlic fused with dusky cumin and earthy chili powder pulls you into a minuscule storefront that is Tub's Fine Chili & Fancy Fixin's. In black-rimmed pots behind the ordering counter sit seven chilis to sample.

Re "Making Out Like Bandits," July 27: These raccoons are certainly clever and powerful creatures. They kept on toppling over or opening our trash bins despite my best efforts to place barriers or even 20 pounds of bricks on top of the lids. In desperation, I decided to sprinkle some chili powder on the trash and hope this would work. After the first encounter, it took them six months to raid my trash again. Another sprinkling of chili powder has kept them away for at least two years.

A mother has been charged with capital murder in the death of her daughter, who was suffocated with chili powder, police said. The woman, Angela DiSabella, 19, said she had used the powder to try to stop the 5-month-old girl from sucking her thumb, said Irving Police Department spokesman David Tull. Paramedics who went to the scene after the mother called for help found so much chili powder in the baby's throat that she could not breathe, he said.

Dear SOS: I attended Fries Avenue School in Wilmington in the early 1940s. The cafeteria served a tamale pie that I liked very much. It was different from today's tamale pies because there was not a corn bread crust on top. The cornmeal was mixed in with the rest of the ingredients and there was just the slight- est skin-like membrane instead of a crust. D.E. Miller Corona del Mar Dear D.E.: This recipe from our files sounds similar to the one you are looking for, as the cornmeal is mixed into the casserole.

DEAR SOS: King's Fish House in Calabasas serves a killer barbecue shrimp appetizer. The sauce is terrific for bread-dipping and is usually fought over at the table. Can you persuade them to part with the recipe? PENNY PEYSER Woodland Hills DEAR PENNY: Miss Manners might have something to say about fighting over food at the table. Maybe you should write to her, too. Paul Clotier kindly sent us the recipe. Write to Culinary SOS, Food Section, Los Angeles Times, 202 W. 1st St., Los Angeles, CA 90012 or e-mail to: cindy.
