The "BREAC" Sandwich

After a quick workout downstairs, I was confronted with this dismal display...


(Please note the abundance of condiments and lack of everything else.)

Somehow, I managed to come up with this meal...


Celery sticks and hummus with an open-faced buffalo-ricotta egg and cheese sandwich (recipe below).


To conclude dinner, I ate a dessert-like Ginger Snap Larabar. (I'm so in love with these!)


Buffalo-Ricotta Egg and Cheese Sandwich

Ingredients:

2 pieces of whole wheat bread
1-2 tbsp of buffalo sauce
1 tbsp of ricotta
1/8 cup of shredded cheese (or 1 slice of cheese)
1 egg (fried or "over hard")


Directions:

1. Cook egg until yolk is firm. (I made mine over-hard, but fried would work too)
2. Spread buffalo sauce on both pieces of bread (as much or as little as desired)
3. Spread ricotta evenly on one piece of bread; spread shredded cheese evenly on the other piece of bread
4. Toast both pieces of bread until cheese is melted
5. Once toasted, add egg between both slices of bread
6. Enjoy!

Here's the finished product, which Mal ate for dinner. He was a huuugge fan of this sandwich combo!


I leave you with a beautiful sunset from our balcony... good night!
