Curried Egg Sandwich #recipe @Dempsters #Villaggio


One of my favourite sandwiches is the Curried Egg Sandwich.  Surprisingly enough, the first time I had ever eaten a curried egg sandwich was when I was in Japan!

There was this delightful little cafe my friends and I used to ride our bicycles to on our days off. Usually on a Sunday morning, we'd have brunch at this quaint little place. They specialized in an assortment of "different" bagels and sandwiches. The place also doubled as a shop that sold really cool items like the funkiest lighters and even Swiss Army knives. The menu, the ambiance, and the venue itself were all really unique and not what I would expect to find in the outskirts of Hiroshima.

How I wish I could remember the name of that place! *Edited to add: Thanks to Facebook, I was able to ask my former co-workers from Japan what the name of that place was! It's Darren Almond! Wonder if it's named after this Darren Almond? Must be!

Whenever I have a curried egg sandwich, I am transported to that special time in my life. Hard to believe my days teaching and living in Japan are so far away. Like fifteen years ago! Wow!

The original Curried Egg sandwich I had was served on a toasted whole wheat bagel and it had capers. Here's my version of the sandwich:

Ingredients
  • 4 extra large hard boiled eggs
  • 2 Tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp of curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp of chopped fresh chives (if you want to switch things up, you can use 2 Tbsp chopped parsley)
  •  alfalfa sprouts or chopped baby spinach or watercress
  • a few slices of cucumber (just because my 4 year old's favourite vegetable is cucumber)
  • Slices of Dempster's wholegrain bread or Dempster's bagel of your choice. This time we used Dempster's Villaggio, because that's Hubby's new fave.
Instructions
  1. Boil eggs for about 4 minutes from the minute the water starts a rolling boil. Remove eggs from heat and run under cold water and peel.
  2. Place eggs in a large bowl with mayonnaise, curry powder, chives and salt. Mash with the back of a fork.
  3. Add spinach or alfalfa or chopped watercress to egg mixture and gently stir to combine.
  4. Toast bread.
  5. Assemble egg mixture on sandwiches and top with slices of cucumber. Top with slice of toasted bread to form sandwich and serve.
Enjoy!

Thanks so much for saying that! That really means a lot to me. I've been thinking about what the heck I'm doing over here! I don't want to morph into a blog that I'm not. I want to go back to blogging about what is me :) Does that make sense? LOL!

Thanks, my dear! :) I hope you like it. Maybe you can tweak the recipe somehow if you're not a big fan of curry. Ohhh...I know! How about Thai sweet red chili on your eggs?! Mmmm!
