Rustic…Fried Eggs, Charred Tomatoes, Carmelized Onions!

  • Don’t let these everyday ingredients…EGGS, TOMATOES, ONIONS, and BREAD fool you into thinking it’s just a typical sandwich. The CHARRED tomatoes and CARMELIZED onions on this open face type sammie bring you that rustic, flavorpacked bite. Lot of us love “charred” food because we get a deeper flavor. Charring tomatoes are probably the most favorite way that many of us like to eat them because they get sweeter and more juicy! At Yum Maker, we have quite a few recipes made with carmelized onions so they’re obviously a favorite, too. What’s also great is that charring your veggies doesn’t really take a lot of time, so we can still categorize this yummy sammie as easy to make! We were happy to find this tempting looking sandwich from Honest & Tasty. Just like they do, we love fried eggs! We also agree that adding some salt and pepper to the fried egg brings out a lot of flavor. A thanks to Honest & Tasty for making this sandwich with SOURDOUGH bread,too! You can’t beat it. Here’s another keeper sammie for us!

    • 5 tablespoons of butter
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 large onion, cut in half and then sliced
    • 2 ripe tomatoes of your choice, sliced to about ½ inch rings
    • 2 slices of sourdough bread
    • A few good pinches of sea salt
    • A few pinches of black pepper

    Make It: 

    1. Carmelize your onions: Add 3 tbsp butter in non-stick pan, medium to low heat. When butter is almost melted, add onions. Let onions soften and brown, stir on & off, about 25 minutes total time to caramelize. Add a pinch of salt. Lower heat if needed, avoid burning. Remove from pan when done.
    2. Char your tomatoes: Add tomatoes to pan, medium heat. Add a pinch of salt. After 1-2 minutes (when tomatoes start to char), flip tomatoes to the other side to char for 30 seconds or so. Remove from pan when done.
    3. Fry your eggs: Melt 2 tbsp of butter in pan to cook the eggs (use medium heat if you want crispy edges). Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Cook about 3-4 minutes or until desired doneness.
    4. Top your bread with carmelized onions, charred tomatoes and fried egg! YUM!

    What a great sandwich! You can also toast or grill that yummy sourdough bread for some crunchy goodness. Sourdough bread is soooooo good for that!
