Seriously Twisted Cucumber Sandwich





This is a SERIOUSLY twisted cucumber sandwich.

No soft, white, crust-less bread. No light, simple flavors. It’s definitely not the sandwich at your grandma’s tea party. Instead, this sandwich brings it with complex, fresh, flavors, a big crunch, and even a fried egg! The fresh flavors of cucumbers and pea sprouts combine with the mild tones of provolone and egg are served between toasted whole grain bread and the result is a wonderful texture and flavor explosion. Even better, it’s super well-rounded.

To be completely honest, I had my doubts. I’m not even sure what made me want to put these things together. When I described it to my husband, I paused as we looked at each other with wary expressions…and then I resignedly said, “If this doesn’t work out, I’ve got a back up dinner.” Oh me, of little faith.

Sooo, the egg…I know what you’re thinking. I was thinking it too. It’s a tiny bit weird but you can definitely make this sandwich without it and it still tastes GREAT. I made it for a family lunch a few weeks back without the egg and it was very well received.

Try it and let me know what you think.

4 tbs Greek Yogurt
2-3 tbs Dill (freshly chopped)
4 slices Provolone
1 English Cucumber (thinly sliced) - I don't peel them, but if the skin bothers you, then by all means!
1/2 package Pea Sprouts, thoroughly washed and dried. (I buy mine from Trader Joe's)
8 slices Whole Grain Bread of choice (I used the 7 Grain Bread from Whole Foods)
4 Egg Whites

Mix the greek yogurt with dill and set aside.
Slice the cucumbers and sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt.
Gently toast the bread.
While the bread is toasting, heat your pan with a bit of oil and fry your egg whites on both sides. I used a silicone circle to contain the egg whites to a smaller area, but if the heat is high enough, you can pour the egg white slowly and it shouldn't spread out too far.
Once the bread is toasted and the eggs are fried, you can start assembling the sandwich. Spread a thin layer of dill mix on each slice. On half the slices, place a slice of provolone. On the remaining slices, place a thin, overlapping layer of cucumbers...I fit about 12 on each slice. Top the cucumber layer with the pea sprouts. Put the egg on top of the pea sprouts and then flip the provolone side of the sandwich on top.
Cut in half and serve with sliced cucumbers on the side. I top those sliced cucumbers with a small sprinkle of chef salad mix for added flavor.
