Cooking with Manuela: Father’s Day Brunch

 Here are some fun and delicious recipe ideas to celebrate the Dads in your life

Father’s Day is this weekend. Let’s celebrate with something special, made with love for the amazing dad in your life. 

First of all, let’s take a look at this ultimate breakfast egg sandwich (similar to the Tik Tok egg sandwich that went viral a few months ago). 

It has it all: the melty cheese, the fresh veggies, and the scrumptious eggs. All squooshed between two slices of tasty bread. So messy and oh-so good. It’s super easy to prepare, it only requires one frying pan. 

Here are some things to keep in mind when attempting this recipe.

– Find the right size pan – you need one that is big enough to fit the two slices of bread. But not much bigger, or you will need a lot more eggs to cover the bottom.

– Beat the eggs in a bowl with all the seasoning you like (I just used salt and pepper). Depending again on the size of your pan you can use two or three large eggs. I think 3 is the best choice! 

– Make sure to dip both sides of the bread in the eggs, so when you flip it, it will look delicious on the back side too. And let the egg set as much as possible, so turning the sandwich over will be easier … it’s the only hard step in the process. If by any chance it breaks when turning … no problem. You will fold the eggs in, so no one will notice!
