Nutritional Information

Ingredients

1 tbsp / 15 ml Grape seed Oil (Salt + Pepper, to taste)
1 tbsp / 15 ml Lemon Juice
1 oz / 28 g Rocket Greens
1/4 cup / 50 ml Mango Chutney
1 tbsp / 15 ml Butter, melted
1 tbsp / 15 ml Olive Oil
1/2 cup / 125 ml 2 % milk
1/2 cup / 125 ml EGG Creations! Whole Eggs Original
2 oz / 56 g Turkey Pastrami
4 slice Gruyere Cheese
2 tbsp / 30 ml Mayonnaise
2 slice Brioche Bread, thickly sliced

Directions

  1. Lay your pieces of bread out onto a cutting board. Spread each piece of bread with mayonnaise.

  2. Place two pieces of Gruyere cheese on top of the mayonnaise on one piece of the bread.

  3. Place the turkey pastrami evenly over the top of the Gruyere cheese.

  4. Place the other two pieces of the Gruyere cheese over the top of the turkey pastrami.

  5. Place the second piece of bread over the top of the Gruyere cheese to complete the sandwich.

  6. Once the sandwich is put together, press down on it slightly to ensure you have an even distribution of ingredients and both slices of bread are flat.

  7. Place the liquid whole egg and the milk into a shallow dish and mix together.

  8. Place a non-stick sauté pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and melted butter and allow them to get bubbly.

  9. Dip both sides of the sandwich into to the egg and milk mixture allowing the mixture to just coat the bread and then immediately place the sandwich into the sauté pan.

  10. Cook the sandwich until the egg is cooked and you achieve a golden brown color and texture on each side.

  11. Once cooked on both sides, remove the sandwich from the pan and place back onto the cutting board.

  12. Place the rocket greens into a mixing bowl. Add the grapeseed oil, lemon juice, salt + pepper. Mix together so that all of the leaves are lightly coated.

Tips: Cooking

Add a splash of Egg Creations to your cheese filling for hearty pastas such as cannelloni, lasagne or stuffed shells to help the mixture hold together better once baked.
