Vote for this instructable in the brunch contest! It's quick, simple, and above all, tasty.
Anyways, I always allot time before school to prepare envy-inducing breakfasts and lunches of awesome in its purest form. Conjoining the two best meals makes ultra meal; brunch!
Yes, brunch witnesses meals in their finest forms, and this quick variation of egg Benedict bliss is no exception. I love biting through the runny yolk, into the glazed ham and finally through the crunchy, golden toast. Mmmm.
Shall we commence?
Step 1: Gather Thine Ingredients!
I swear, this is one of the most versatile dishes! I'm not a fan of repetitive meals, and I can really make a new dish everyday with the same idea of this gourmet sandwich. Most everything below is optional, add or subtract anything your heart desires! I will present my favorite variation.
1 piece of bread
cheese (parmigiano reggiano or mozzarella)
mustard (or secret mustard sauce, mentioned later)
arugula (or salad)
honey (or agave syrup)
salt and pepper
Step 2: Secret Mustard Sauce *Optional
It's a straight forward recipe. It can be added to anything as a dressing for sandwiches, tacos, salad, egg sandwich, etc.
1 part mustard
1 part walnut oil
1 part Canola oil
Blend all the ingredients in their future container/jar. I use a hand blender and an old jar.
If you decide to do this sauce (it's seriously the best, but the blender is broken at the moment), pour it over the egg as it cooks, and the sauce will delicately simmer.
Step 3: And Start!
Now to optimize usage of time, I suggest following this timeline:
1.Bread in toaster
2. Place all ingredients in an accessible location
3. Butter pan on med-high heat
4. Crack egg and lower heat to low. Apply salt and pepper.
5.Add ham with drizzled honey.
6.Toast is out! Quickly, smother it with mustard, cheese, and arugula!
7.Place ham and egg on sandwich. Olé!
Savor the decedent flavors of the salty egg, the smoky, sweet ham, the gooey cheese, and the crunchy salad and toast.
The second best part of eating this is biting that yolk open and letting it reach the corners of the sandwich and tumble over onto the plate.
On a side note, avocado with Lawry's seasoning salt is an excellent side to this dish. OJ is also always welcomed.
Another side note, I present to you my first Instructable : )
