Merriam-Webster Dictionary describes a sandwich as one of the following . . .
- slices of bread with a filling in-between
- a slice of bread covered with food
- “something resembling a sandwich; especially : composite structural material consisting of layers often of high-strength facings bonded to a low strength central core”
I’m not sure about you, but composite structural material doesn’t sound good to me!
This fried egg sandwich recipe probably fits into the composite structural material category, so I’m glad it tastes better than it sounds.
We roasted our portobello mushrooms in the oven, topped them with slices of ham, then fried eggs that were cooked until the yolks had just set. After that, we topped them with fresh tomatoes, green onions and a sprinkle of sea salt for good measure.
Miss the bread? Not us!
For dinner we had a delicious – something resembling a sandwich – according to Merriam-Webster anyway.
Happy, healthy cooking!
