If you are a lover of colorful and easy brunch food, then this sandwich is for YOU!
We recently had a Sprouts open by our apartment. It’s amazing. My husband and I live on a side of town that has plenty of popular fast food restaurants and other large corporate groceries, but we have lacked a “neighborhood feel” full of local eateries and businesses. The last couple of years has showed hope with some new places popping up and then the magical day came when I learned we were getting a SPROUTS! While Sprouts is not locally owned, it still gets a heartfelt squeal from me being that I have been desperate for yummy, healthy food options close to home.
But, I digress…
With new and interesting ingredient options, my amateur culinary interests have been inflamed once again. The great thing about this particular brunchwich is that it is incredibly easy, colorful, and hits all the important food groups.
The sandwich is composed of the following:
- 2 over easy eggs seasoned with TJ’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
- 1 thick slice of a beefsteak tomato
- Mashed avocado
- 2 thick slices of your fave kind of mozz
- A handful helping of greens (I used an arugula/spinach mix)
- A sturdy roll of your choosing (Chibatta bread works great too!)
There is no secret to this brunchwich. Grab your ingredients and get to slicin’. Next, throw some butter or cooking oil into your egg pan and start letting those eggs sizzle. I like butter just as much as the next person, but when I’m trying to be healthy, I’ll use Avocado Oil to cook my eggs in. I am an advocate for simple eggs. Just a little salt and pepper will do the trick. If you want to get really fancy, use course salt and freshly ground rainbow peppercorn. However, if you want to revolutionize your egg game, you MUST HAVE Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel Seasoning. This stuff will change your food game. It’s so tasty.
While your eggs are sizzling, go ahead and start toasting your bread. Mash up some avocado; probably about 1/4 to 1/2 of the avocado will work depending on the size of the fruit and how much you want. Spread a thick layer of the avo on both halves of your warm-from-the-toaster buns. If you will be saving half of your brunchwich for a mid-afternoon snack, you can squeeze some lime into the avo mash mix to stop it from turning brown.
I hope you didn’t forget your eggs! The goal is to make sure your eggs are still runny. There is nothing better that sopping up egg yoke drippings from your plate with the last bit of your sandwich, which usually ends up being mostly bread. Take your eggs off the heat and slip them onto the bottom half of your bread. Layer your brunchwich with the tomato slice, then the Mozz, then the greens. Huzzah – you have made a delicious food item that can be consumed immediately.
Enjoy with a mimosa or a cup of coffee. If you are EXTRA like me, have both and turn on a little jazz while you demolish this delicious brunchwich. Enjoy!
