Fried Egg and Avocado Sandwich

     For my the last dish, what i chose is Fried egg and avocado sandwich. Why? well i feel like i should make a sandwich that contained avocado (cause i love avocado) and found this recipe. This sandwich is easy to make and also very delicious.

A gif of the step by step process of how i made this sandwich

       Notes: I have to say that this sandwich was the most delicious sandwich i had for a long time. The cream cheese goes really well with the avocado, bacon and the fried egg. The cream cheese just melt in my mouth with the  taste of green onions. Everything about this sandwich was just perfect.

Mac and Cheese

          The whole point of the mac and cheese sandwich is to show you, that you could put most likely anything between two pieces of bread and to make it a sandwich. So not just only adding ingredients but you could put full meals into a sandwich.

Here a picture of the indigents that i'm going to use for the mac and cheese.(forgot to add bacon and bread to the picture :P)

Cooking the Macaroni for the mac and cheese

Finish grinding the cheese for the mac and cheese sauce.
      I warped the mac and cheese in a small container in order to keep the shape while it cools down in the fridge.
A gif of the process of making this sandwich. (i know it not much but most of the work is done into the mac and cheese) 

Notes: Sorry for the useless picture, that all i could find on my phone i guess that i kind of forgot to take pictures from time to time.

     Anyways I tried to make the cheese sauce at school but some how couldn't make it. So i went to my friend's house to see that if he could help me to make  cheese sauce. And it turns out that i didn't have enough butter and flour to make white sauce for the mac and cheese, case closed.

   This sandwich is a great tasting sandwich with the classic mac and cheese taste to it plus the crispy bacon that was added on the sandwich.

Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich

        Disclaimer i was not planing to make Chicken Parmigiana sandwich it was suppose to be Eggplant Parmigiana sandwich (because i wanted to make a sandwich with out any meat) but there was no eggplant when i was cooking on that day :( but there was a piece of chicken that was available. I swap the chicken with the eggplant in my recipe. So i am not sure this is how to make chicken parmigiana so ya :P.

This is all the ingredients for this recipe

      i made the sauce first, so if you are lazy you could buy the marinara sauce in a jar from your local store, or you could make it using the recipe below.

Getting ready to breaded the chicken.(i know that the bread crumbs is a bit huge and i should of used a food processor but oh well) 

       Cooking the breaded chicken. Not sure if it suppose to look like this but it tasted good :)

A gif i made to show the process of making the Chicken Parmigiana sandwich. (sorry about the background, i had to keep on changing places due to small space.)

Notes: I kind of altered my recipe by added some lettuce and i was supposed to place the chicken first then the cheese and sauce (just to be sure you can add or change anything to your sandwich cause it yours). Overall i did learn a couple of thing from this recipe (like breading and making sauce) and my friends who ate this sandwich said that this sandwich was great because of the sauce and the cheese goes well with the chicken.

Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich
Prep time
Cook time
25 mins

Recipe type: lunch
Serves: 1 sandwich

  • 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 15 ml olive oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 ounces dry bread crumbs
  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast.
  • 1/4 cups of mozzarella, shredded
  • 1/4 cups of marinara sauce
  • 2 pieces toasted white bread
  1.  Scramble the 1 eggs with salt and pepper to make an egg wash. Remove eggplant slices from the salt bath, shake off excess moisture, and dip into egg wash. Then dip the eggplant slices, 1 at a time, into a flat plate filled with seasoned bread crumbs, covering all surfaces, and set aside. Continue breading the eggplant until all slices are done. Discard excess egg wash and bread crumbs
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan and allow it to heat up. (Add more oil as necessary during cooking.)
  3. Cooking time depends on thickness of chicken and the temperature of the oil, but I would say about 3-4 minutes each sideremove the chicken from the stove and place on the toasted bread
  4. top it off with shredded mozzarella cheese, then warm marinara sauce. 

       Just in case if you do wanted to make an eggplant parmigiana sandwich, do diagonal cuts to the eggplant. then soak the slices in warm salted water for a hour then do the following in the Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich recipe, then changing the word chicken into eggplant.

Turkey club sandwich

    I know that this is a really basic sandwich to make, but my first dish is meant for people who doesn't know "what is" or "how to make" an sandwich. So here is a basic, great tasting, easy to make sandwich with made from turkey, lettuce, and bacon!

Here I gathered my main ingredients (tomato, lettuce, bacon, etc...)

The toaster here at the school dose not work properly. it bunt one side of my toasts :(
So from then on i started using the stove to toast my bread ;)

A gif i made of the process of how i made this sandwich.

notes: This sandwich is delicious but it also have basic ingredients and really easy to make. The only thing is bad is that the toaster alcatly bunt one side of the sandwich which made a bitter taste, other than that is really good and you should make one for yourself too
