Kitchen | Breakfast Sandwich on Rustic Bread

Sandwiches never need to be bland or boring. There's just so many possibilities with different combinations! 

I came back from a swim this morning and craved a big, filling sandwich, but I hadn't eaten breakfast yet and I like starting my day off with eggs. So I got to rummaging and found red onion, eggs, dijon mustard, Rustic bread, and a very oddly shaped tomato (it looked like a baby red eggplant...should have taken a pic!). 

I like my bread toasty on the outside and soft on the inside...and spruced up. So i cut it in half, drizzled a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, dried basil, and thinly sliced up one clove of garlic. Then I stuck that into the toaster oven to medium-high while I cooked my eggs and it was perfect.

It was delicious! I ate it maybe a little too quickly...too hungry to take more photos. It would have been even BETTER if I had some avocado and maybe some spring mix lettuce.

4 Egg whites + half of 1 egg yolk
Dried Basil
1 Clove of Garlic

Restaurant Review | Dialogue on Teahouse in Rowland Heights

I actually found out about this place from Wong Fu Productions. Click [HERE] for the youtube video. Everything always looks cuter and prettier in their videos and when they filmed at this cute cafe, I had to read the info to see where it was. Then I saw that it was in Rowland! Definitely bookmarked it.
