Sunny Sandwich

You probably won’t have enough time in the mornings, but when you do, you’d be pleasantly rewarded if you try this – almost as good as a panini.

Just almost.

Sunny Sandwich

  1. Toast a couple of slices of bread, wholemeal or white, up to you.
  2. While that’s in there, fry up some onions and white mushrooms. Don’t forget to add a sprinkle of dried thyme or basil, salt and pepper.
  3. Your bread should be all crisp and toasted before you’re done with the onions and mushrooms. Slap on a small hunk of butter on both slices.
  4. On goes the mushrooms and onions on one slice, and fresh rocket leaves on the other.
  5. Peel out some mature cheddar with a speed peeler, and lay them on the sizzling mushrooms and onions.
  6. Then, here’s the grand finale – a fried egg, sunny side up, done with an egg ring.

    This is an egg ring (with an egg in it):

  7. ¬†Once that’s done, lay it gently on the cheese. Be careful not to burst that lovely yolk of golden goodness.
  8. Sandwich everything together and cut up into pretty triangles, if you must.

Gloomy autumn mornings are a thing of the past.


Sandwich: Toasted Fishcakes

Back when Mummy made breakfast for me to bring to school, I’d always be pleasantly surprised whenever it was toasted fishcake sandwiches. Even though she made it every Friday.

This concept of ‘fishcakes’ is really quite unique to Singapore. For some reason, it’s extremely difficult to find it even in other parts of Asia, not to mention Europe. Back in London, I’d only find it in Chinatown; what a tragedy.

In any case, if and when you get your hands on some ‘fishcake’, please treat yourself to a morning toasted fishcake sandwich. It will complete your day (and your life).

  • 1 piece of fishcake, halved and toasted
  • 2 slices of bread, white or wholemeal
  • 1 thumbsized knob of butter, halved

With a knob of butter and a hot toasty piece of fishcake wedged in each slice of bread, you’ve got one more thing to make your Friday brighter.
