Yum: Sunny Goats & Sweet Grape Sammy

My friend Genie said something to me once that I did not realize held so much truth until that very moment when she said it: “You love a sandwich.” It’s true. I really, REALLY love a sandwich. If I owned a sandwich shop, I would name every sandwich something ridiculous like that. Why not? It’s fun and it makes me smile. Reminds me of Tom Haverford. But I digress. Here we have something I came up with months ago on accident, and it is probably one of my favorite sandwiches ever. I’m not a huge recipe person, but I do like to share some of the goodies I stumble upon while in the kitchen. So I present to you the Sunny Goats and Sweet Grape Sammy. It will require a Panini Press, but you can substitute a non-stick pan for the “pressing” portion of the process.

What you’ll need

2 slices of whole wheat bread

1 large egg

Grape Jelly

Goat Cheese (spreadable or crumbled)

Fry your egg first. While your egg is frying, spread your goat cheese on one piece of bread and your grape jelly on the other.

Remove the egg from the pan while the top of the egg is still uncooked. Don’t worry though! The next step will ensure a cooked egg. Top the egg and jelly-covered piece of bread with the cheese-smothered piece, and set it on your Panini Press.

This happened on accident (or shall we call it an EGG-cident) and I thought it was hilarious. The sandwich grew a hand. I hope this happens to you.

Remove the sandwich when you are satisfied with it’s cooked state. I cooked mine for about 4 1/2 minutes, and the egg was perfect. Not overcooked, but firm enough to keep me from gagging. The goat cheese and jelly turn into this pastry like filling that blankets the egg so wonderfully.

And there you have the Sunny Goats & Sweet Grape Sammy. Eat, and be satisfied.

If you wanna get all sassy, use a spicy jam. It gives the sandwich quite a punch in the taste buds.

Happy Friday!
