My Lunch: Open-faced Steak and Egg Sandwich

1 February 2011

Mmmmmm…..this is my lunch! I finally made something from scratch and now I shall share its secret. It’s an ‘egg in a basket’ (egg fried in a piece of toast) topped with cheese, grilled beef, and fried onions. Here’s what you’re gonna need:

  • Leftover roast beef, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 medium onion (or 1/2 small onion in this case), thinly sliced
  • 1 slice of cheese (I used provolone), torn into pieces
  • about 2 tsp. flour
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 large egg
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder (garlic salt or granulated garlic)
  • LOTSA BUTTER :) (I don’t measure)

1. Put the onions in a bowl and coat lightly with the flour. Melt butter in a pan over medium-high heat then add the onions. Season with salt and pepper. Fry until golden-brown and crisp on the edges.

2. Cut a hole in the middle of the bread large enough to fit your egg in.  Melt butter in a pan over medium-high heat then place your bread in the pan. Crack the egg directly in to the hole. Cook for 1 minute then flip and cook for another 20 seconds (you want the yolk to still be runny). Place some cheese directly on the bread to melt.

3. Right away, add your beef to a pan over high heat with a little butter. Quickly sauté the beef for a minute, seasoning with some garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Add a bit of cheese at the last second to melt in with the meat.

4. Pile the beef on top of the bread and top with the fried onions. Serve right away! ENJOY.

This was a very simple lunch and it tasted great too. The runny yolk is so yummy with the bread and the beef and the onions, beef and cheese go well together. Everyone will love this!

It’s also a good way of using up leftover roast beef. You could also cook up a steak and slice it to use for this sandwich if you don’t have any roast beef.

Total preparation and cooking time: less than 15 minutes

    Huh. I have never tried cutting a hole in my bread for an open-faced sandwich. Maybe I will try that next time!
