I woke up at 5:15 AM to sneak in a few minutes with Max’s work laptop since I remain computer-less. This means Lily will likely wake at 5:30 AM. I’m no spring chicken. I know how these things work. But let’s see if I can quickly crank this post out!
A few years ago Max had a breakfast sandwich at the now-closed Sunsets restaurant in Wayzata and he raved about it so much that it has now become the go-to thing I make for him for his birthday and Father’s Day breakfasts. Lemme tell you about it.
Smoked salmon, avocado, tomato, fried egg…and then it takes a twist with some basil mayo. Initially I was skeptical about the addition of the basil mayo but it is really delicious. Now days when I make it I keep it simple and just add basil and mayo as two separate ingredients, but it does look lovely and particularly fancy if you blend some basil mayo up yourself.
Here is the recipe (“recipe”):
4 English muffins, sliced and toasted*
4 Fried eggs
4 Tbsp Mayo
8-12 basil leaves
4 oz smoked salmon
1 ripe avocado, sliced to fit on a sandwich*
1 tomato, sliced to fit on a sandwich
Salt & pepper
Toast the english muffins and fry the eggs. Spread 1 Tbsp mayo on the insides of each English muffin. Layer remaining ingredients: tomato slices, avocado, 1 oz smoked salmon, fried egg, and the basil. Add salt & pepper and serve immediately.
*For low FODMAP modifications use a gluten free bread such as Udi’s sandwich bread and limit avocado to no more than 1/8 of an avocado.
Aaaaaand Lily just woke up! It’s 5:45 AM so that is something at least. Someday the whole “I wake up before the children to get things done!” will work for me, yes? (Say yes.)
