Tomato, Cheddar, Arugula Egg Sandwiches

Pin It
I wasn’t planning on blogging these. Actually, I wasn’t planning on making these. They were born out of necessity one evening when I realized the recipe I set out to make was supposed to be made a day ahead of time. Oops. I quickly surveyed the contents of our fridge and came up with these, which took all of ten minutes start to finish to make.

Even after making them, I didn’t plan on blogging them. Some nights you just want to cook and eat and skip taking any pictures! But then I plated them and realized they were too pretty not to show on The Sweets Life. Yup, you know you’re a food blogger when you start calling food pretty and insisting on taking pictures of it!
These tasted as good as they looked…a major success considered the last minute decision that they were! Because we were short on bread, I turned mine into a salad and used the little bread that was remaining as a dipper for all of the runny egg yolk. Sandwich or salad, you can’t beat this meal when you’re pressed for time!
