Last week’s Tuna Melts were surprisingly popular. As a friend put it, “it is one of those hard-not-to-love meals but that we tend to forget to make”. Today’s Egg Sandwich might be in the same category for many but for us is that quick fix when time and inspiration are hard to find.
Other meal highlights:
- Chocolate and Black Bean Soup – Yes, you read it well: Chocolate! I am always interested in finding ways to incorporate one of my favourite food items in an otherwise ordinary meal. This soup needs to be doubled if you want it to last for more than one meal. As a side we had some locally made pickled-bear sausages, a first for me.
- Cabbage Fried Rice – The original recipe is made with Brussels sprouts which are much more enticing than cabbage. But Brussels sprouts were nowhere to be found at the supermarket so the old reliable Newfoundland cabbage had to do it. I also used maple syrup instead of agave.
- Tempeh Burgers – Deliciously filling tempeh burgers with lots of homemade sauerkraut and a side of roasted potatoes drenched in olive oil. Very yummy!
- Egg Sandwich – Sandwiches are Chris’ forte (much like pizza). I was never into sandwiches until this man showed up in my life and showed me that much joy can be packed between 2 slices of bread. This egg sandwich is one succulent morsel! The recipe is below.
- Breakfast Highlight – Maybe calling a Stout-Chocolate Cake “breakfast highlight” is a bit of a stretch but we were eating this ganached-guiness goodness at basically every meal. It was perfect to celebrate St. Paddy’s weekend (thus the stout) and Chris’ birthday (thus the coffee ganache).
- 6 eggs boiled, peeled, and chopped
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- ¼ yellow pepper
- ¼ cup sauerkraut
- 1 tbsp. fresh dill
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- 10 slices of fresh bread (we used the oat bread from Georgetown Bakery)
- handful of leafs of lettuce
- 1 tomato sliced
- In a large bowl place the chopped eggs. Stir the mayonnaise, yellow pepper, sauerkraut, dill, and spices. Mix everything well, taste, and adjust any seasonings.
- To assemble the sandwich place lettuce, slices of tomato and about ½ cup of the egg mixture between 2 slices of bread.
