A few days ago, I’ve got beautiful homegrown, range-free organic eggs as a present from our dear neighbors, and I decided to make an Egg Sandwich.
I truly love this regal and scrumptious sandwich with its medley of hot and cold filling ingredients. You can vary the ingredients – substitute hot bacon or the ell for the Prosciutto for example.
Hard-cooked Egg and Prosciutto Sandwich with Avocado and Basil
- 4 Ciabatta Rolls
- 2/3 cup homemade mayonnaise or use ready-made
- 20 leaves of basil
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 4 Tbsp butter
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- For the filling:
- 2 oz baby spinach, shredded
- 4 oz Prosciutto, thinly sliced
- 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced
- 4 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
- 4 oz cucumber, peeled and sliced
- 4 oz Rosenborg Danish Blue, creamy cheese
Using a food processor simply mix the mayonnaise with the basil, garlic, and lemon juice. Put the ciabatta rolls on the board and slice them lengthwise with a serrated knife.
Preheat the broiler. Spread the softened butter all over the inside of the ciabatta rolls and season lightly with salt and pepper.
Broil the base and lid until almost golden. Layer all the filling ingredients into the base, in the order listed above, or in order of your desire. Spread half the mayonnaise/pesto mixture over the spinach layer, and the rest over the eggs. Finish with a layer of Rosenborg Danish Blue creamy cheese.
Place the filled ciabatta rolls bas under the broiler for 4 minutes. Reheat the cut side of the lid for 2 minutes. Replace the lid on the rolling base, pressing down with your fingertips.

And for the GIVEAWAY
From my childhood, I remember a beverage called Kvass – strong, sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, it always helps during the hot summer day. It was made by fermentation of bread. And we called it Kvassik (a diminutive form of Kvass) when it was flavored with fruits or berries.
I was glad to find a soft drink which has a similar taste, it is made using natural juices and also fermented.
Friends from Cascal offered to send a case of their new soft-drink to one of my dear readers.
