There was once a time when I would make delicious, molded together lunches. Now, most days I just make Philip fend for himself and only make Eliana “bread and butter,” commonly known as a peanut butter sandwich. Well, those days are achanging… starting with the day I reunited with my specialty hummus sandwich.
In high school, I could and most times would eat this sandwich everyday. It was actually a lot of work for a lazy, sleep all day teenager but what can I say? My cravings drive me. I think I stopped making it when one day, after completing the sandwich and doing a quick clean-up, one of our dogs took it upon himself to devour the newly made masterpiece. These days I don’t have a dog to steal my food and my toddler wouldn’t go anywhere near this sandwich.
Do fried eggs, red peppers, hummus, pesto and feta sound like a strange combination to you? Okay, I guess it could be considered a little strange but it doesn’t taste strange, I promise. Oh and don’t worry, I wasn’t sneaking an extra egg into my sandwich, that third egg was for Eliana. But hey, if you want to go for two fried eggs in your sandwich, I won’t stop you.
I will warn you, I don’t have precise measurements for this sandwich because really, who wants to be told to only put two tablespoons of hummus on some bread or only a thin layer of pesto? Not me! I love me a nice slab of pesto, along with a mountain of feta cheese and a flood of hummus. I’m not talking a hurricane flood here, more like a gutter flood.
