My Take on the "Spanglish Sandwich"

If you've seen the movie Spanglish, you know which sandwich I'm referring to.  There's a scene in the movie where Adam Sandler's character makes a fried egg sandwich (inspired by Thomas Keller from French Laundry), slices it in half with the yolk pouring out of it and it makes every foodie watching salivate like no other.  I've recreated that sandwich many times but this morning I did a different take on it:

  • two slices whole grain rustic bread
  • one large egg (over EASY)
  • arugula
  • avocado (about 1/4 of a medium one)
  • one slice Havarti cheese
  • whole grain dijon mustard
  • roasted yellow pepper (comes in a jar)
Toast bread with Havarti cheese.  Spread one slice with mustard.  Add avocado and roasted pepper on top of mustard.  Add arugula on top of Havarti.  Top arugula with egg.  Put sandwich together, cut in half (making sure the yolk is centered!) and voila!  Delightful morning.

(you can barely see the yolk pouring out, but it's there, I promise!)
