Italian Egg Sandwich


While I may be a total pain to work with in all other regards, at least my coworkers get some perks.

This sandwich is fairly healthy and the combination of marinara, olive oil, garlic, and Parmesan is a Mediterranean delight!

Lunch, anyone?


Italian Egg Sandwich

Serves: 1


3 teaspoons olive oil
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoon salt
pinch of ground pepper
1 rustic roll, such as Ciabatta
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup marinara sauce, heated


  1. In a small skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat. Crack the egg into the skillet, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the white is firm and the yolk is almost set, about 4 minutes.
  2. Slice the rolls, brush 1 teaspoon of oil over the bread & rub with  garlic. Place under broiler until slightly toasted, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  3. Spoon the marinara sauce over the Parmesan cheese and top with the cooked egg. Serve immediately.

  1. Now that I’m back from a culinary explosion in St. Lucia, I’ve got to get you to try to replicate some of these recipes. How do you feel about working with barracuda? 😉

  2. the recipe is likely repeatable – the question is what will barracuda cost you if you can find it?
    What were some of the menu items/recipes? Will get working on it – even if we have to use another fish in place (halibut or sea bass will both likely do well)
