Sandwich-making is lost art form. Unfortunately, it’s been buried beneath a ton of sexist jokes and therefore doesn’t get the credit it deserves. Seriously though, I’m convinced I love sandwiches a minimum of four times more than your average person. I’m all for purchasing a better-than-average sandwich but when I make them on my own, I often do go for the ordinary sandwich. This was an exception, though. All it took was buying a 50¢ (go, go, go shawty) wheat bun and it somehow cause me to go above and beyond. Here’s that delicious and so-easy-that-you-don’t-have-an-excuse-not-to-do-it sammich.
- wheat bun/roll/whatever you want to call it
- sliced turkey
- 1 egg
- bell peppers
- avocado (not pictured!)
Everything after is pretty self-explanatory. I made the egg sunny side up (with olive oil) and also placed the cut bell peppers in the pan for a bit after the egg. I typically like less meat on my sandwich and more crunch from the veggies (lettuce, spinach, what-have-you), but after setting up my sandwich I realized I did need two slices of turkey instead of one. After placing the turkey, the avocado followed, and all other ingredients, along with the cooked egg and bell peppers.
And there you have it: a sandwich that could be given at a fancy shmancy brunch place but you could enjoy from the comfort of your own home. In PJs. Watching Netflix. And that I think is what they call a win-win.
