This simple breakfast baguette egg sandwich takes me way back to my secondary school days.
Waking up so early and trying to catch the bus to school, breakfast didn’t usually come until we got to school just before class. Right next to class was this tiny little hut, single handedly manned by the most amazing egg sandwich maker I knew at that time. There was always a line, and I can’t even imagine how she got to serve all those hungry students before class. Now I wonder if she baked the bread in house but all I know is the moment my 150 CFA francs ( ~$0.25) was collected every morning, I was ready for a delicious warm baguette filled with the perfect omelet. Simply made with tomatoes and onions and seasoned to perfection.
I’ll chow down that sandwich in little to no time and wish I could have more! That was it though, had to save my remaining cash for lunch.
Anyways, like I said, this recipe is super simple and it really did brightened my morning. Freshly baked baguette is definitely a must , hence my early morning trip to our local bakery in town. Even better if you bake your own bread . Everything else should be in your kitchen.
Not that coffee was on the menu back then but feel free to enjoy this one with a cup of joe or tea. Breakfast doesn’t get any better than this. Believe me when I say you’ll enjoy every hearty bite of this sandwich .
Hope you get to try this sandwich. And if you’re brainstorming on quick office breakfast ideas, I’m sure your colleagues will have lots to say about this baguette egg sandwich. Grab a few extra baguettes and impress the team. While at it, don’t hold me responsible when they keep requesting you bring breakfast.
