Ingredients

  • 2 slices natural multi-grain bread toasted {my favorite is this brand}
  • ½ an avocado sliced
  • 4 slices of a small tomato
  • 2 slices cooked bacon halved {I use this nitrate-free kind}
  • 2 stems of kale leaves removed & chopped
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  • Heat a small amount of olive oil in a small skillet {non-stick if you have one} over medium-high heat. Add chopped kale and saute until tender and slightly wilted. Transfer kale to a bowl.
  • Assemble sandwich: Place one slice of toasted bread on a plate. Top with 3 slices of avocado. Arrange sauteed kale on top. Place tomatoes on top of kale. Lay bacon strips on top of tomatoes. Finally, if you're an avocado-lover like I am, top with 3 more slices of avocado. Place second slice of bread on top. Did I really just tell you how to make a sandwich?? We've reached new lows, folks.
  • Using the same skillet {because we are definitely not using more than one pan to make a stinkin' sandwich}, add about a teaspoon of olive oil and fry your egg. Or not. I'm not going to tell you how to make your egg, everyone likes them differently. I used to love, then hate, then love runny yolks. So yeah. Just make your egg however the spirit moves you. Then put it on top of that gorgeous stack of wonderfulness that's sitting on the plate.
  • I highly suggest you eat/serve this with a fork and knife. Unless you're home alone and the shades are drawn. Then dive in with reckless abandon.

Notes

Note: I didn't season the kale, tomato or avocado with anything because 1. I try not to add salt if it isn't really necessary, and 2. Bacon is salty enough. And this is a "healthy" sandwich, remember? So let's keep it that way. But if you really, truly want to, you can add a sprinkle on any of the parts you'd like.
Another note: Among the things I did NOT get accomplished this weekend: Real non-sandwich recipes to share; the recaps of the past five zillion events I've attended that I need to hurry up and finish. Sorry. It'll happen.
