The key to making a bomb ass sandwich is to get quality ingredients. If you follow my posts, you'll see me talk about this time and time again. The english muffin sandwich I created with burrata, is a post I created a few weeks back, highlights how a few simple amazing ingredients can make such a big difference in a meal. This egg sandwich I've been making for the last few years is honestly one of my favorite guilty pleasures in the morning. Not that this breakfast is super decadent but it does contain carbs and I try to limit carb intake in general. So when I'm eating bread in the morning, it better be damn good.
In this recipe, I use Base Camp Bakery's Oat Porridge Loaf. Base Camp Bakery's breads are all made from organic ingredients sourced from California farmers and naturally leavened. You can get their bread delivered through Good Eggs. Their bread is divine and the Oat Porridge is my favorite. The bread is moist, chewy, yeasty, nutty, slightly sweet and the crust is crisp and aromatic. It's good on its' own, with butter, jams, nut butters, literally anything. And when I use it in a sandwich it's booomb.
Scallion Egg on Oat Porridge Loaf w/ Lao Gan Ma
Prep Time: 5 mins. Cook Time: 2 mins Serves: 1
2 whole eggs
1/4 cup roughly chopped scallions (green onions)
1.5 teaspoon soy sauce or braggs soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 slices of Oat Porridge loaf or any fresh loaf you prefer (sourdough is great or rye)
1 tablespoon Lao Gan Ma (find at your local Asian Market or Amazon)
1 teaspoon avocado oil
Whisk eggs with a touch of water, soy sauce, salt , sugar, and sesame oil
Heat non-stick pan to medium heat with avocado oil
Lightly toast the bread (optional).
Pour eggs into pan and cook until almost set, flip over and cook the other side for 30 seconds on high heat. The eggs should have a little crisp edge but not over cooked.
Turn heat off immediately and layer eggs on top of one slice of bread.
Top the eggs with Lao Gan Ma and cover with the second slice of bread.
Tip: Lao Gan Ma hot sauce has many different types, ones with nuts, radishes, black beans. Any of them will do although my preference is the one that's called Lao Gan Ma Fried Chili in Oil
