Food: Fried Egg & Avocado Panini



Hello MBG friends! It's Heather from The Lovely Cupboard, and I'm bringing you one of my favorite panini recipes today! This is vegetarian approved, but the carnivores won't miss the meat at all. Promise. You start with sourdough bread, herbed mayo, and avocado. Add tomato, fresh sprouts, some Havarti cheese, and top it off with a fried egg. Oh, man. I can barely write about it without getting hungry. 


Here are the ingredients in picture form:



1. Start by prepping your mayo. Simply dice your favorite fresh herb (I used thyme) and add to the mayo. It's that easy and kicks the "wow factor" on your sandwich up about 50%. That a scientific fact, really.



 
 
2. Spread the mayo on the bread and layer thick slices of Havarti cheese on both sides (white cheddar would be fine too) . Add your avocado and fried egg to one side and tomato slices and sprouts to the other.

 
3. Since a panini is a "hot pressed" sandwich, typically you would use a sandwich press. I don't have one, so I use this little trick to add the pressure needed to make paninis.




4. Grill about 3-4 minutes on each side over medium heat.

 
5. I served with baby dill pickles and black bean chips.



 
My husband is adding a fried egg to almost everything he eats these days...pizza, stir fry, sandwiches, you name it. I think it makes him feel very French. Needless to say this sandwhich was a hit in our home. I'd love to hear your favorite panini recipes!

    Jen-I have to tell you, I read your blog among others daily and I have to say out of all the blogs, besides that yours is my favorite, whenever I have a question you always answer me and I do really appreciate that. Not too many bloggers personally answer questions like when I want to know where to buy a price of furniture that was used in a design project. You're the best!
    Thank you! Love love loveeee your blog!!
