A Grilled Breakfast Sandwich With A Tasty Southwestern Flavor Combination!
Egg sandwiches are cheap and filling. A plain fried egg on white bread with ketchup and hot sauce is a filling sandwich that has gotten plenty of people through tough economic times. A plain fried egg sandwich can be made in a jiffy with little mess. By just wrapping the egg sandwich with a napkin before hopping in the car, time can be saved by not waiting in line at a fast food joint drive-thru. A home cooked egg sandwich certainly will leave the tummy feeling better than a fast junk food, especially when taking a scenic Sunday drive!
Sun Dried Tomato, Roasted Poblano and Monterey Jack Egg Sandwich:
This recipe yields 1 sandwich!
Step 1: Place cup of water in a sauce pot over low heat.
Add 4 sun dried tomato halves.
Simmer the sun dried tomatoes, till they are tender.
Remove the reconstituted sun dried tomatoes from the pot.
Cut the sun dried tomatoes into thin strips and set them aside.
Step 2: Cut 1 small roasted chile poblano into thin strips and set them aside. (About 1/5 cup of pepper strips. Either canned or fresh roasted poblano is fine for this recipe.)
Step 3: Toast 2 slices of whole grain wheat bread.
Step 4: Heat a non-stick sauté pan over medium/medium low heat.
Add 1/2 tablespoon of unsalted butter.
Add 1 whisked large egg.
Sprinkle the reserved sun dried tomato strips and the reserved roasted poblano strips on the eggs.
Do not stir or scramble the eggs!
Step 5: When the bottom half of the eggs are cooked firm, flip the eggs.
Place a few thin slices of Monterey Jack Cheese on the eggs.
Add 1 tablespoon of water to the pan.
Place a lid on the pan.
Allow the steam to melt the cheese.
Step 6: When the eggs are fully cooked and the cheese has melted, use a spatula to place the eggs on one of the pieces of toast.
Place the second piece of toast on the egg sandwich and cut the sandwich in half.
Place the egg sandwich on a plate and garnish with a parsley sprig. (Or simply place the sandwich on a napkin and eat the sandwich while on the road!)
*Be sure to turn off the stove and kitchen lights, before bolting out the door!
The simple combination of whole grain bread, roasted chile poblano, sun dried tomatoes and jack cheese gives this southwestern style egg sandwich an appealing flavor!
