The new egg sandwich
An hour later after we were done at the park, I stopped back at Honore to pick up the loaf they had set aside for me. And that was a lucky thing in itself since the bakery had already sold all the others. My loaf was still warm. It made me very happy.
We ate on it Friday night accompanied by a goat cheese brie and apples. On Saturday, in an attempt to make another meal with this amazing bread, inspiration struck. Like the bread, we think the sandwich is a keeper.
The New Egg Sandwich
Toast a large slice of bread in the oven on a rack (so air circulates on both sides of the bread) at about 350 degrees until somewhat crispy. The time depends on how moist your bread is, of course. While you are toasting the bread, make your fried egg. I like mine fried in a tiny bit of olive oil with Maldon salt, ground black pepper, and sumac sprinkled on the yolk before flipping it once the yolk is set and cooking a little more it's a "well-done" over easy egg -- the yolk maybe a tad drippy but not all liquid-y. Anyway, suit yourself and make the egg(s) however you want. When the bread is ready, spread some basil pesto (at room temperature) on the bread, place your hot fried egg on top, then top that with thinly sliced ripe avocado and crumbled good-quality Israeli feta cheese. Eat it with a fork and knife.
