Fancy french sandwich

Yes, the French sandwich is a well – known sandwich because it it popular in France but also in the Europe. In fact, the first step (the bread cooking) is a old one, my grandma used to make the bread that way without knowing that it’s the “French way”.

The sandwich, the quick and “fast” dish. But what if we can make it both a little bit elegant and healthier? Let’s try.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 2 slices of pork loin
  • 4 slices of toast bread
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt, pepper, parsley, red paprika powder
  • Dijon mustard

Kitchen instruments:

  • Pan
  • Bowl
  • Grill pan

How I did it:

Step 1

Preparing the bread First of all, I scrambled 2 eggs in a deeper plate and I dipped the bread in the eggs. Then I added olive oil in the grill pan and let them fry a little bit until they get a light brown color. IMG_6660

Step 2

Preparing the eggs and the fill The perfect poached eggs. I put some butter into the pan and the eggs in small glasses of water, one egg in each glass and the added them in the fry pan. I watched the eggs until they got perfect. I carefully splashed the eggs with the melted butter in order to get the yolk moist and juicy. IMG_6668

Step 3

Plate and enjoy! Once the eggs were ready, I went back to see the toasted bread. Looked and smelled great. I put 2 slices of bread on a plate. I took a long pork loin slice and I folded in two. One side I put it on the toasted slice and then added one of the eggs. I seasoned the egg: salt, pepper and Dijon mustard. Then, I put the other folded piece on the egg. I added again a little bit of salt and sweet paprika. IMG_6675

Put the second slice of bread and then..enjoy! 😉

The Béchamel sauce

Béchamel…I am sure you’ve heard about it. It is the “mother of sauces”, French sauces and it’s often used in Italiane and French cuisines. It’s a White sauce and without it, Lasagna wouldn’t be Lasagna anymore. Let’s find out how it’s made. 🙂
