Fried Egg Sandwich with Cream Cheese-Cheddar Spread

Today I made homemade bread.  It has been quite a while since I've attempted to make a loaf, since all my past efforts at making a whole wheat bread were not exactly successful.  So I compromised on the whole wheat aspect today and made a white loaf, but it was a success!  I made a boule recipe from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, and have to say that it was almost perfect.  The crust was just the right balance of crispy and chewy, and the inside was light, fluffy and flavorful.  I wanted to use it to make sandwiches for dinner tonight, and almost ate half the loaf before the sandwiches were even made.  I probably met my weekly carb count in just that one sitting, if I was someone who counted them.  I enjoy those pesky little carbs too much to live without my beloved bread and sugar. 

I used the bread to make fried egg sandwiches with an herbed cream cheese-cheddar spread.  Sort of my take on a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich...but minus the bacon.  If I'd had any in the house, there definitely would have been bacon on this sandwich, but I was too lazy to make a trip to the store just for bacon.  Now I know everyone likes their eggs cooked differently, and I am in the group that likes 'em over easy.  Give me a runny yolk, firm whites, and a dash of salt and pepper over the scrambled type any day.  I present:  Fresh baked bread slathered in an herb cream cheese-cheddar spread, topped with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and a tender fried egg. 


Fried Egg Sandwich with Cream Cheese-Cheddar Spread

(Serves 2)
3 ounces cream cheese
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 Eggs
4 slices of good quality bread
lettuce
6 cherry tomatoes, sliced

Place the cream cheese in a small microwavable bowl, and heat in the microwave until soft.  Add the mayonnaise, salt, onion powder, rosemary, and fresh ground pepper to taste.  Stir until well combined.  Add the shredded cheese.  Microwave in 10 second intervals, until the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth and creamy.


 Spread some of the cheese mixture over two slices of bread.  


On one side, layer lettuce, tomato, and if desired bacon.  Set aside.  In a small skillet, heat a tablespoon of butter over medium heat.  When the pan is hot, add an egg and cook for 3-4 minutes, then gently flip.  Cook the other side for about 30 seconds, then remove pan from heat.  Slide the egg out of the pan and onto the sandwich.  Season with fresh ground pepper and salt.  Top with the other slice of bread.  Serve immediately and enjoy!


And if you like your eggs over easy, it will look like this.  Yum.

I eat a ridiculous amount of bread every time I bake it fresh too! It's dangerous :) Your egg sandwich looks perfect. My husband and I make these often on english muffins, but I've never thought to add the cream cheese. Good idea!

Your bread looks amazing! I'm so impressed! I actually own that bread book and haven't made anything yet! However, after looking at your gorgeous sandwich I'm inspired to start baking my own bread! This is my first time here and I will be back for sure!

Well, not sure if my first comment made it, but that bread looks wonderful. I think I would like to get that bread book, I have heard much about it.

Ok, I'm about to scream here. This is utterly amazing! I'm serious. OH MY GOODNESS. I don't even know what to say, and that's way totally not normal for me! This is something else. If it wasn't almost midnight, I sware, I'd get up, go to the store, and get the items to make this!
