Do you ever get hooked on a dressing? A dressing or sauce you either purchased or made and it’s so delicious, you find yourself putting it on everything? I have a new one. It’s a lighter version of Caesar dressing made with Greek yogurt. I usually despise any “lightened” version of a dressing or sauce, but that feeling completely goes out the window when it comes to Greek yogurt. The tanginess of the yogurt is such a welcome change to the traditional Caesar dressing.
You’re probably thinking, “Caesar dressing? Where’s the salad?” Yes, well, I did make a salad-and I loved it on the salad. But then the leftover dressing made its way onto my newest sandwich obsession, soft scrambled eggs and creamy avocado on hearty 9-grain toast. I loved the flavors of the dressing on the sandwich even more!
And that was the start of it all. Now the possible flavor combinations seem endless. Wouldn’t this be perfect for shrimp cocktail, a fresh crudité, or even as dressing for a summer slaw? All these visions are really making me crave spring and summer, and all the wonderful in season food that comes with it! March, are you here yet?
Scrambled Egg and Avocado Breakfast Sandwich
Making the Dressing: The recipe for the dressing was the brilliant work of Ashley. I follow her directions exactly and urge you to do the same. The recipe will make more than you need for the sandwiches, but it keeps really well.
For the sandwich:
- 4 slices hearty whole wheat bread
- 4 eggs
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/2 T butter
- 2 T milk
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Toast the bread. Spread a generous amount of yogurt on one side of the bread, and smash half the avocado into the other side of the bread. Repeat with the remaining bread and set aside.
Set a small frying pan to medium low heat. Melt the butter in the pan. Beat the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl. Pour the eggs into the pan and cook slowly, gently scraping the eggs off the bottom of the pan until they’re just cooked.
Spoon the eggs onto the bread. Assemble the sandwiches and serve immediately with greens.
