On Sunday it was a beautiful winter's day and we went to a barbecue. I made a Caesar Salad to take with for lunch as I had all the ingredients. It was so good, I can think of nothing else. A bit cool in the house today so not exactly the weather for a salad. I decided to 'deconstruct' it and make it into a sandwich instead.
I'm not really an 'egg' person but the occasional one is okay, especially if it's smothered with Caesar Salad dressing. This dressing is super easy and the one I used for the salad.
Caesar Salad Sandwich
2 slices bread (of any sort)
1 tbs butter (or olive oil)
1 rasher bacon (or 3 slices ham, proscuitto or pancetta)
2 tbs whole egg mayonnaise
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
1 small anchovy fillet, ground into a paste with a knife
- Toast bread on one side.
- Fry ham/bacon in melted butter/oil to warm through then fry egg as desired. (I like mine with no soft yolk whatsoever).
- Combine all dressing ingredients.
- Spread dressing onto untoasted sides of bread and add ham/bacon, fried egg and lettuce.
- Spoon remaining dressing on top.
