Place a slice of cheese, one of meat and another of cheese on one half of the bun, cover with the rest of the bun and put in a sandwich maker for 2-3 minutes. Then add the sprouts and mustard and you are ready to eat. It is a hearty, protein-rich snack that can successfully replace lunch or dinner when you don't have time for classic dishes.
French sandwich with pressed ham and cheese
We offer you this recipe if you are attracted to French-inspired dishes, with butter and spicy spices. To make it a reality, you must have a baguette, pressed ham, cheese, mustard, butter, fresh tarragon, pickles and pepper.
Use a small bowl to put the finely chopped pickles (about half a cup), four tablespoons of butter, a tablespoon of mustard, finely chopped tarragon and a pinch of pepper. Mix well until you get a unitary composition.
Cut the baguette in half lengthwise then spread on one of the halves obtained the whole mixture of butter and pickles. Place the pieces of pressed ham and then the cheese and cover with the second part of the baguette. Press lightly to ensure the ingredients adhere, then use a bread knife and cut four sandwiches. Your breakfast is ready and delicious.
Eggs, lettuce and caramelized onions
For those who prefer an egg sandwich, we propose this recipe with caramelized onions and fresh lettuce leaves. The list of ingredients contains four eggs, a medium-sized onion, four buns, two tablespoons of fig jam, blackberries or berries and created lettuce.
Start with caramelizing onions. You need a non-stick pan, a little oil, a pinch of salt, a little pepper and julienned onions. The caramelization is done over low heat, lightly mixing the onion with a wooden or melamine palette. You know it's ready when it starts to turn brown and you feel a sweet, pleasant smell.
Be careful not to burn it, because it will become bitter. In general, a medium-sized onion can be caramelized in 15 to 20 minutes. When ready, place on a plate and use the pan to cook the eggs, in a little oil, covered with a lid, for 4-5 minutes, so that the yolk is still soft.
Cut the buns in half and brown them a little in the oven, in the pan, in the toaster or even in a sandwich maker, to obtain a crunchy texture. Then place a few pieces of salad and caramelized onions on half a bun, put the egg on top, cover with a little jam, add a little more salad and finish with the second half of the bun.
Eggplant and bean sandwich
Do you want to be included in the list of recipes and some based mainly on vegetables? This time we suggest a dish with beans and slices of ripe eggplant, nutritious, light and delicious. To get it you need a small eggplant, cut into slices about half a centimeter thick, a cup of canned beans, washed well and drained, lettuce, baguette or bun, a finely chopped red pepper and a spoon of tahini. The taste is completed with salt, pepper, a clove of chopped garlic and a tablespoon of lemon juice.
If you have a sandwich maker in the kitchen, you can use it to bake eggplant slices faster. The best sandwich maker for obtaining grilled vegetables is the one with non-compartmented plates and the right surface, with or without wrinkles. To avoid sticking, grease the surface of the plates with a little oil and preheat them before placing the eggplant pieces. You can also prepare the eggplant slices in the oven, taking care to heat it before inserting the vegetables. Cut the red peppers into wide, long slices and bake them similar to eggplant.
While the eggplant is cooking, add the beans, tahini, chopped garlic, lemon juice, a little oil, salt and pepper to a large enough bowl and mix, crushing the beans. Spread the bowl composition on the wand slices or on the bun halves, place the eggplant and pepper slices on top and cover with the remaining bread. Good appetite!
