In the Kitchen
What is this you ask? It is a fried egg sandwich! This is what we had for supper last night. 5:30 rolled around and for some reason this mama hen had lost total track of time. West rolls in here and leans on me and says "Mama, I'm hungry." So we think of something quick. West is big on sandwiches, he loves just about any kind; loaded with meat, no meat, lots of lettuce, spicy mustard, cilantro (yes, cilantro), toasted, not toasted, mama's bread, store bought bread. So, of course his idea is a sandwich of some kind. He knows we have left-over biscuits from last night and so he thinks maybe that with some mustard and mayo and turkey and lettuce. I think an egg would be pretty good on top of that biscuit. So then he wants both, a fried egg and a sandwich made on that biscuit.
So, by the time things are all said and done and we are sitting down to our meal Ruby, who isn't a big fan of sandwiches herself, has a piece of toast with a fried egg, West has a fried egg sandwich with a biscuit on the side, and I have this - a fried egg sandwich on toast. I love fried egg sandwiches. They are so good for you and so tasty. I am making mine and I am wishing for a little fresh lettuce from the garden and a nice ripe warm tomato from the garden, but alas, it is not that time of year so I simply put mayo and some spicy mustard on the toast, add a little mozzarella cheese on top of the egg so it will melt a little bit, a small amount of chili to add a little spice and voila, there you have it!
Hope you enjoy your eggs as much as we do ours!
