Sandwiches are easy, portable, quick and delicious. I love to make sandwiches and try out different variations to it. Today, am sharing a simple and healthy sandwich; if all ingredients are available at the counter-top, it can be done in a jiffy.

Total prep time : 20 mins, Serves 4-6


Bread (white, brown, multigrain, choice is yours)

Butter as per choice

1 egg (hard-boiled and shelled)

1 tbsp carrot (grated) (optional)

lettuce (washed and cut into fine shreds) as per choice

2 ½ tbsp cheese (grated)

salt and crushed pepper to taste


Place egg in a small saucepan and add cold water to cover eggs by 1”. Keeping the heat on high, bring water to a rolling boil, uncovered. Take the pan off the heat and switch off flame. Let it sit for 12 minutes covered. Remove with a slotted spoon and place under cold running water. Crack egg and peel them. Now, slice them thinly; season with salt, crushed pepper and a dash of garam-masala. Reserve.

Spread butter evenly on bread slices.

Put little shredded lettuce, little grated carrot, thin slice of egg and cheese on one slice.

Cover with the other slice of bread. Gently press together.

Taking a wide pan, drizzle little butter and place the sandwich. Toast till it reaches brown in colour and crunchy.

Cut into triangles and serve warm immediately.

My observations/notes :

  • cabbage can be used instead of lettuce
