There are many different ways for making a breakfast sandwich, so I encourage you to experiment. For instance, I normally top my sandwich with slices of bacon, but this time I decided to switch things up and try slices of prosciutto. What a delicious experiment that was! You may also want to try out different types of cheese. For example, swiss cheese, goat cheese, brie, boursin, jarlsberg, the options are endless! You could also try adding different combinations to your egg, or flavour up your mayonnaise. I also use a little trick when making my sandwich that some may frown upon, but to most will love! I like to cook my eggs for a sandwich in the microwave so that I can form it to fit my bun perfectly. I cook the egg in a microwaveable container the same size as my bun or bread so that it will not spill over the sides and will be easier to eat. This tip is also great for a hangover because it means less work, mess, and stress. The egg comes out perfectly cooked, while still remaining moist. To anyone who is skeptical of the microwaved egg, just give it a try, I used to be skeptical myself.
Tip: To make garlic mayonnaise, simply add a little pureed garlic to your mayonnaise and stir to combine.
1 bun or 2 slices of bread of choice (I used a challah bun)
1 tbsp garlic mayonnaise
about 1 tbsp fresh herbs of choice, chopped (I used basil, parsley, and chives)
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1 tsp milk
2 slices cheddar cheese
2 slices prosciutto
several leaves of fresh spinach
2 slices tomato, or several sliced cherry tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
1. Prep and chop all ingredients. Place cheese slices on bun or bread and toast in toaster oven until cheese is melted and bread is lightly browned.
2. While bun is toasting, break egg into a bowl and whisk with fresh herbs, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and milk. Place in a microwaveable dish the size of your bun and cook for 1 minute.
3. Once bun is toasted, spread the naked slice with mayonnaise. Top the bread with the cooked egg, followed by the tomatoes, prosciutto, and spinach, and season with salt and pepper. Hangover be gone!
