Open-Faced Egg Sandwich

This open-faced egg sandwich isn’t complicated or anything new, but it truly satisfies your tastebuds with its building flavors of garlicky mayo aioli, spicy arugula, creamy avocado, warm egg yolk, and tangy-sweet pickled onions. To me, it’s the perfect combination of flavor and texture you want in a breakfast sandwich. By keeping it open-faced, this sandwich is lower in calories and carbs to not weigh you down. 

I use sourdough bread in this sandwich but feel free to swap in your favorite bread. I lightly toast the bread for subtle crunch but still soft enough to absorb the runny egg yolk. Make your sandwich to your liking by adding as much or little of the arugula, avocado, and pickled red onions. I personally use about 1/2 cup arugula, 1/4 avocado, and a healthy fork-full of onions (I can’t get enough of these). You’ll have some extra mayo aioli and pickled onions leftover for another day. Enjoy!
