Origins of my egg cheese and avocado sandwich
I think it started with the Egg McMuffin. A perfectly portioned breakfast sandwich, with salty canadian bacon and cheese. I was probably eight when I had my first one and I have been infatuated with flavor and convenience ever since.
On nights when I just don’t feel like cooking — I’ll make an egg sandwich. Sometimes open-faced, sometimes not. Preferably with bacon, or ham, or sausage, but not always. And I like vegetables — things that make it feel like a sandwich. Lettuce, tomato, pickles. Even hot sauce, or barbecue sauce. Nothing is off-limits.
Ingredients for egg cheese and avocado sandwich:
- Fried Egg
- Canadian Bacon
- English Muffin
- Colby Jack Cheese (or your favorite sliced variety)
- Ripe Avocado
- Ripe Tomato
- Caramelized Onions
- Pat of Butter
- Salt & Pepper (to taste)
And I mean, nothing. One of my favorite things is scavenging leftovers in the fridge for suitable toppings. Chili? Sure. Sauteed mushrooms? Absolutely.
Today, I found a small tupperware of caramelized onions – the ideal golden topping for my perfectly fried egg.
This is not the kind of sandwich you eat in front of other people. It’s a messy, two-handed amalgam, best eaten whilst hunched over your plate – to catch whatever sneaks out. Whatever — it’s glorious!
