Egg Sandwiches

Our Easter weekend was great..... on Friday we had dinner with a sweet family, all the kids swam in the pool late into the night while we enjoyed adult conversation in an oasis of a backyard!  Our friend's backyard is absolutely beautiful and on the drive home the husband and I were dreaming of how to turn our backyard into a vacation paradise (we'll begin by mowing the lawn).  The kids swam again on Saturday (I love TX weather!), we went to an awesome church service and then ate at the kids favorite restaurant.  On Sunday, we celebrated Jesus' resurrection with new friends, ate delicious food and had yet another Easter egg hunt with the kids (they're always up for more chocolate!).

When our weekends are busy and what feels like non-stop-going, I want to make something quick and easy when Monday night dinner time rolls around.  So, tonight we had egg sandwiches..... actually, we've had these A LOT lately.  The husband and I love them, the kids love them, and the sandwiches are so, so easy to make (and super yummy!)


To get the egg sandwiches ready, I made sunny side up eggs (just like my heart-shaped eggs, no need to flip).  While the eggs were cooking, I sliced tomatoes, red onions and gathered some greens (tonight we used arugula and romaine, but I've also used kale, spinach, basil, even asparagus).

I then toasted the bread (we used flat bread/buns).  Once the bread was warm and toasted, I spread mayo, then layered lettuce, tomato, onion, and topped it with a cooked egg.  After sprinkling salt and pepper (and sometimes a little hot sauce), it was ready!

I used to top the egg sandwich with another slice of bread, but after watching my kids inhale three sandwiches (each!), I cut back and now we have open faced sandwiches- I gotta save where I can! Sometimes we'll fold the sandwich like a taco and eat, other times we just stuff it in our mouths, and sometimes we actually eat like civilized people and use a fork.

  2. We eat these at least once a week, sometimes twice.... an easy, quick combo. And even if the fridge is somewhat empty, there's usually still a carton of eggs on the shelf.
