Deli sandwiches for breakfast

Today I was a morning person.

Well, I was supposed to get a few more minutes of sleep, but my mom woke me up because apparently last night I promised to make her breakfast. I did? Oh well.

I wanted to make these breakfast sandwiches for a while now. Ever since I had this lightbulb moment of taking my egg rings to a whole new level, I’ve been thinking about these warm, rustic, amazingly simple bread fares time and time again. I was supposed to make them with homemade mayo, since after two failed attempts I think I can muster up the confidence to make a whole new batch. But well, we ran out of eggs so I’ll just defer that to another day.

Still, it tasted really good. The freshness of the lettuce + the warm toasted bread + savory cuts of meat + the tangy mayonnaise + eggs sunny side up =  good mornings made great.

Breakfast sandwiches (serves 2)

1 ciabatta
2 English muffins
2 – 3 breakfast sausages (I used The Swiss Deli variety, the slightly small hotdog variety)
1-2 pieces sliced processed meat (The Swiss Deli circular kind. haha)
lettuce leaves
2 teaspoons mayonnaise, divided
2 eggs
A dash of Spanish paprika, basil, salt and pepper

Make the eggs: Break the eggs into two separate ramekins. Sprinkle the paprika, basil, salt and pepper on top of the yolk. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until egg whites are cooked and not runny anymore.

While the eggs are cooking, slice the sausages in half. Heat oil in a pan. Fry the sausages until slightly browned. Once cooked, remove it from the pan and put it on a plate with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Fry the sliced meat until slightly brown as well.

Slice the ciabatta in half. Let it toast in a toaster oven for 2 – 3 minutes. Once done, remove it and place the two English muffins in the toaster for 2 – 3 minutes as well.

Assemble: Spread a teaspoon of mayo on one piece of the sliced ciabatta. Liberally add lettuce leaves. Place the sliced sausages. Top it with the other ciabatta slice. Spread a teaspoon of mayo on one muffin. Add the lettuce leaves, then the sliced meat and top with the other muffin. Serve warm and Enjoy!
