Fried Egg Fiesta Sandwich—a.k.a. The OMG

Fried Egg Fiesta SandwichYes, I’ve nicknamed this sandwich three capital letters: The OMG. Get it? It rhymes with BLT. But it’s not a BLT. But it is so good that you’ll be like, OMG.

Trust me. I actually whimpered a little when I took my first bite. You should make this very, very soon.

Ingredients for The OMGIngredients:
2 pieces of bread
1/2 an avocado

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
1 egg
A few sprigs of cilantro
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Slice red bell pepper in half and remove seeds and stem. Slice each half into 1/2-inch pieces.
3. Put pepper slices and olive oil In a small resealable bag, season with salt and pepper to taste, and shake everything together until the pepper slices are coated with oil.

5. Place a few slices of red onion on top of cheese and jalapeno.

6. Place one or two layers of roasted peppers on top of red onions. (I only managed to get half of the peppers on my sandwich. Guess I’ll have to make the sandwich again tomorrow. That’s just too bad.)

7. Fry an egg and place it on top of the peppers. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. (Here’s a video about how to fry an egg if you need tips.)

8. Sprinkle cilantro on top of the egg and top it all with your second piece of toasted bread.

And, presto-magical—it’s done!

Quick Tip: If you want to cut down on the prep time, buy a jar of roasted red peppers instead of roasting your own.

It’ll be easier to eat if you cut it in half…

But if yours starts to looke something like this, just go grab a fork and a knive.
