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!
