Good morning! 😀
If it weren’t so GLORIOUS, I’d be ashamed to admit that Mr. Prevention and I crawled into bed at 10pm last night. WILD and CRAZY kids, I’m tellin’ ya! 😉 9 hours of sleep…ahhhh. 🙂
Anyways, if you’re a Cooking Light lover like myself, you probably started drooling at page 28 in the most recent May issue. On page 28 there was a recipe for Open-Faced Sandwiches with Ricotta, Arugula, and Fried Egg. While Cooking Light didn’t specify whether this was a morning or evening dish, I made it a morning dish of my own with a few modifications.
Nicole’s Open-Faced Sandwich with Hummus, Arugula, and Fried Egg
1 slice bakery bread (I used an Asiago cheese bread)
1 large handful of arugula
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice
ground pepper and salt, to taste
1 large egg
1 Tbsp hummus (I used pesto hummus)
Toss arugula, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper gently. Set aside.
Lightly spray bread with cooking spray. Broil or toast until browned.
Heat a small skillet. Coat with cooking spray. Cook 3/4’s of the way through and toss.
Spread hummus over toast. Layer on fried egg. Top with arugula and serve. Serves 1.

Result: This is delicious! I think it would be great with ricotta, too…just didn’t have any on hand! This would work as a savory breakfast, or quick, light supper! Mmmm mmm! I served it with OJ + POM – additional Mmmm mmm!
The farmer’s market yesterday was wonderful! Mostly radishes and greens are out thus far. I was most excited to see free-range, organic, local eggs and grass-fed, organic, hormone-free, local meat! 😀
1 bag arugula ($2!!)
pesto hummus ($4)
Asiago Cheese Loaf ($6)
1# grass-fed ground beef ($4)
sesame seeds ($1.50!!)
dried rosemary ($2!!)
ground mustard ($1.50!!)
bones for Lily ($4)
The spices were so fresh and wonderful! And cheap! It was hard to only get what I needed! And the bones for Lily…impulse buy. 🙂
I’ve got 2 hockey games today and grocery shopping to do! And of course, getting ready for the busy work week ahead!
Question: Do you prefer a sweet breakfast…or a savory breakfast? What did you have (or will you have) for breakfast this morning?
Enjoy Sunday…tomorrow is Monday,
