Egg Sandwich

Sandwiches are enjoyed with extreme pleasure at my place. There was this Sandwich Maker my Mother gifted us during our Wedding when she came to know her Son-In-Law loved Sandwiches. However, due to our ‘hippie-like’ lifestyle, the Sandwich Maker was hidden in our Store Room for more than 18 months, used last time before we had moved from our previous house to this one.

Today I had plans to make him some Fried Eggs and Toasts for Breakfast when the thought of Sandwiches suddenly crossed my mind and I found that it did not take me a great deal to take it out from its hideout and give it some work to do.

I did not have any particular filling in mind; neither did I have anything worthwhile in my stockpile. Hence I scrambled a few Eggs with some veggies and herbs, applied some Cheese Spread on the Multi-Grain Bread slices, filled in the stuffing and put them in the Sandwich Maker & grilled. Once done, I gave them a minute to cool, sliced them diagonally and brushed a little Butter on the grilled slices; served them with a dip and some store bought Chips .. ‘A’ was super happy!! I am not putting the Sandwich Maker in the Store Room any more :P

Here is what you will need to make this Egg Sandwich:

Bread slices – 4 (preferably Sandwich Bread, though I used regular ones)
Eggs -2, beaten with Salt and Paprika/Red Chilli Powder to taste
Olive Oil or any other Cooking Oil that you use – 2 tsp
Garlic cloves - 2 – finely chopped
Onion – 1 medium, finely Chopped
Tomato – 1 medium, finely chopped
Green Chillies – 2 – chopped – to taste
Cheese Spread
Butter – to brush on the Grilled Bread Slices
Oregano Seasoning – ½ tsp - optional
Basil – ½ tsp – optional
Red Chilli Flakes – 1 pinch – optional
Any dip of your choice
Some Chips – to your choice – optional

Here is what I did:

Beat the Eggs together with Salt and Red Chilli Powder and keep
Heat a pan with Olive Oil
Add the chopped Garlic to flavour the Oil
After a minute, add the chopped Green Chillies and Onion – cook till Onions are translucent
Add the chopped Tomatoes – cook for another 2 minutes
Add the seasoning of your choice – Oregano Seasoning, Basil & Red Chilli Flakes
Add the already beaten Eggs and keep stirring
Cook till the Eggs are done
Apply Cheese Spread on the Bread slices
Hold a slice on your palm and put the filling on it, do not over-stuff, do not under-stuff either ;)
Cover with the second slice
Repeat the process for as many Sandwiches as you are making
Put them in the Sandwich Maker , wait till it signals they are done
Remove with Tongs and leave for a minute on a clean surface
Slice diagonally from between, brush Butter on the slices on one side (see the butter melting as soon as you apply as the Sandwiches are hot)

Serve with Dip and Chips of your choice .. tastes heavenly .. VOILA!
