Don’t go running away yet….
I thought an omelet sandwich sounded a little weird, too. And so did Big Guy. But it’s delicious. And ready in about 20 minutes. Trust me.
Big Guy isn’t a lover of eggs – he does like scrambled eggs – and he thought that the quiche was the fluffiest thing ever. He doesn’t believe I didn’t use any milk. Nope, no secret ingredients here.
Simply eggs, pastrami, green onions, dill, salt and pepper. But don’t leave off the cucumber salad. It takes this ordinarily weird sandwich to an extremely delicious weird sandwich.
p.s. my new cookware does amazing things.
The recipe called for the omelet to be served on pumpernickel, which sounds incredible, but my stomach would rather the gluten-free variety. So I went with what I had – regular gluten-free bread from TJs.
I toasted the bread, topped it with my portion of the omelet and then finished the open-faced sandwich off with cucumbers.
All the flavors of a deli find without all the calories. I loved the notes of horseradish and mustard that the cucumbers brought to the plate. Big Guy added a sprinkling of provolone to his omelet since he’s a cheese-with-my-eggs kind of guy.
I know it seems weird but it is fantastically perfect.
Try it for yourself.
