My excitement with herb-garlic-butter still lingers, So I thought I should do a fried egg sandwich. I shared the recipe last week but never shared some of the things you could do with it, well at least not in pictures. Which is what I want to do in this post. If you missed the recipe for my famous her-garlic-butter (see vanity kabisa, I just declared it famous…lol) find it here.
In the said recipe I might have mentioned that it does really well as bread spread, see proof.
I might also have mentioned that it does really sumptuous fried eggs. The herb infused flavors it lets off when it starts to melt gently on a warm skillet, right before your eggs go in. The sight itself is a beauty to behold.
But I digress. We are looking at a fried egg sandwich, with the famous herb butter. This one was specifically made with parents in mind. If you have any school going kids, you would know a thing or two about having to wake up really early to prepare kids for school.
Like any parent, you’re constantly trying to come up with different breakfast ideas, a healthy meal plan that should also be dynamic so the kids don’t get bored of the routine of bread spread with margarine. You also want it to be a quick meal, one you can put together in a matter of minutes as you prepare the kids for school and listen out for the school bus. It could be for a quick breakfast before they leave home, or packed in the lunch box to be consumed during the breaks.
Do you relate to this hustle? Then this recipe is for you. You don’t need much to work with, you don’t even need to restrict yourself to baguette bread because any sliced bread would do just fine. The unique thing about this sandwich is we are using the herb garlic butter we did last week. We are using our butter to fry the egg and also toast the bread. You will notice that we have peanut butter “odi” among our ingredients because I am a sucker for “odi” and I put it on pretty much anything (bread, porridge, beans, fried cassava etc) but if you don’t fancy it as much as I do, feel free to leave it out.
Okay, let’s get on with our fried egg sandwich.
- Herb Garlic Butter
- Odi (Peanut butter)
- Onions, diced
- Green onions, thinly chopped (Optional)
- Tomatoes, thinly sliced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Beat the eggs and season them with salt and pepper.
- Fry the eggs with your herb garlic butter and remove them from the pan.
- Spread the bread with the garlic butter and toast it lightly in the pan where you fried the eggs.
- Spread the toasted bread with “odi” and layer it with a piece of the egg, followed a tomato slice, a sprinkle of both onions, salt and pepper.Cover with another slice of bread on top.
- Don’t forget to season with pepper and salt.
- Congratulations, you’ve made your kids a simple healthy fried egg sandwich.
