Breakfast Sandwich

6 Oct

Breakfast Sandwich

This is one of my favorite breakfast sandwiches and I have to be honest I can eat them all day.

Two sliced, toasted and buttered bialeys

One avocado, 1/2 on each sandwich

Two paper-thin slices of red onion

Two Handfuls of arugula

Two thin slices of tomato

Four perfectly fried eggs. Make sure the yolk is still runny.

Four slices of crisp bacon

Salt and pepper

As much Franks Red Hot sauce as you like

This makes two sandwiches

Start with the toasted bialey

Butter  the inside of each bialey

Layer 1/2 of the avocado on top and smash down to form a flat surface

Place the onion slice, tomato slice, one handful of the arugula and  two slices of bacon on the avocado

Gently place the two fried eggs on top

Season with salt and pepper and if you want more spice add the Franks hot sauce.

Franks is a staple in my house. I think my kids would drink it if I let them.

This recipe makes two sandwiches because whenever I sit down to eat someone appears to eat mine.

The other day I did eat two, felt too full,  guilty but very satisfied.

A slice of cheese makes this sandwich decadent.


Peanut Sauce Udon Noodles

Peanut Udon Noodle Salad

Every so often I want peanut sauce and I could put it on everything.

Tonight I put it over udon noodles and it was delicious.

2 tablespoons fresh ginger. Use only fresh.

4 cloves of garlic

3/4 cup  peanut butter

2/3 cup hot water

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 teaspoons honey

One teaspoon red pepper flakes

One pound of udon noodles

1 chopped red pepper

3 diced scallions

Handful of diced cilantro

Sliced limes


Chopped peanuts

Hot sauce

Saute the garlic in the sesame oil for two minutes

Mix the ginger and garlic in the food processor and pulse till smooth

Add the sesame oil, peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and red pepper flakes and pulse till smooth.

You may have to add some extra water to make it pourable.

Cook the udon according to the package directions. Drain.

Mix in a bowl with the peanut dressing

Place a bed of fresh spinach on each plate.

Place three to four heaping spoonfuls of udon on each plate.

Top with the scallions, red pepper, cilantro, chopped peanuts and limes.

This can be served hot or cold.

This recipe was originally from Epicurious but with a couple of changes now.
