Egg White, Basil & Bacon Sandwich with Avocado

IMG_20200418_132305_575I have been putting fresh herbs in my egg whites lately and I ordered this new spice blend from Tastefully Simple and thought I’d give that a try. It’s called Si Si Cilantro. I LOVE cilantro already so that was easy but boy O boy is this blend delicious! So, of course the wheels in my brain got to spinning and I came up with this sandwich and I honestly didn’t think it would be as good as it is. I mean no lie one of the best things I have ever eaten. Now you can certainly substitute some things and I will list some substitutions but if at all possible try to stick with these ingredients because you won’t be sorry. This combination of flavors just clicks and it feels great when your creativity hits that harmonious bullseye and you go…DANG! How’d I do that????? Don’t know, but glad I did!!! Enjoy!! 🙂

IMG_20200418_121505924You will need:

  • Canola oil, butter, or olive oil
  • 4 egg whites (or 2 whole eggs if you prefer)
  •  Fresh basil chopped (about 2 lg leaves or 3-4 small leaves)
  • 1/2 tsp Si Si Cilantro (if you don’t have this you can use garlic powder and dried or fresh cilantro and a little red pepper flakes)
  •  Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 cup shredded sharp white cheddar (any cheese is fine but this one worked so well)
  • 2 slices thick whole grain bread toasted (any bread is fine but thick sliced is better)
  •  butter (softened)
  •  horseradish sauce (mayo would work)
  • 1/2 avocado sliced thin (guacamole would work too)
  •  2 slices thick peppered bacon cooked crisp (Schwan’s peppered bacon is my absolute favorite but regular thick or regular sliced is fine just cook it with pepper)IMG_20200418_122105730IMG_20200418_122253847

In a non stick pan over low to medium heat drizzle some oil or butter and coat the pan evenly. When heated add the egg whites. Sprinkle on while the eggs are cooking the basil, Si Si Cilantro, and pepper. Do not flip. When eggs are almost cooked, evenly add cheese then gently flip half of it over like an omelet and turn off  heat. You can add a few more sprinkles of basil and pepper on top if you’d like.IMG_20200418_122405918

Lightly toast the bread. On the first slice spread horseradish sauce to taste. Next add the avocado, then the bacon (break each piece in half and lay over avocado). Then add the eggs (you can cut the eggs to the size of the bread or just let them hang over the side, it all tastes the same! Lol!) Spread butter on 2nd piece of toast and press butter side down onto sandwich. Carefully cut in half…. YUM!!! **** And if you don’t want to make this into a sandwich the eggs are amazing just as they are! IMG_20200418_132305_575

Enjoy! 🙂
