I love Sundays! Sleep in, watch bad TV, good TV (Psych re-runs) and of course, homemade brunch/dinner. With an abundance of prosciutto, I decided to prepare something savory yet healthy. It’s low-calorie and tastes oh so good! Since prosciutto is a bit salty, you will forego adding salt while preparing this sandwich, a great choice for low carb dieters.
Proscuitto di Parma is a great source of Vitamin B and an energy booster. We all know spinach is a super food, full of vitamin A, C and K – running out of letters! Let us not forget the egg, digests easily has vitamin A, D, E and protein. Last but not least, what I like to refer to as the “super” herb – Sage; it has all sorts of uses but as far as food is concerned, it aids in treating indigestion and flatulence (oops!). This sandwich is practically medicine – the yummy tasting kind of course.
Ingredients (serves 1)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon of fresh sage
- 3 slices prosciutto di parma
- 1/2 cup of spinach
- 1 slice of Udi’s gluten free bread (tastes just like regular bread but healthier or you can use whole wheat bread)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- butter (to lightly smear on toast)
- dash of black pepper
- Lightly sauté sage & prosciutto without oil for about 2 minutes on high heat, this allows it to crisp quickly without sacrificing in flavour.
- Set aside, add oil in pan, sauté spinach for a minute, add egg in the center and black pepper.
- Cover and let it slowly cook to desired readiness.
- Toast slice of bread, smear a thin layer of butter and layer with prosciutto, followed by the egg and spinach on top.
This sandwich pairs quite nicely with a glass of prosecco – ooohhh, I’m hungry yet again! Now back to watching Psych and I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday Bon Appétit!
