Soft-boiled Egg Sandwich

The other day I was looking in the food and drink category on Pinterest for inspiration and I came across a tasty looking fried egg sandwich. I thought about it and decided I wanted to try my own version. I decided to go with soft-boiled eggs instead of fried for a little bit healthier version. So... here's what I did!

This is what you will need:
2 Eggs per sandwich
2 Slices of your choice of bread per sandwich
A few slices of cheese per sandwich (what ever kind you like... I used Monterrey Jack)
Salt and pepper

Start out by toasting your bread.

Then cut some slices of cheese.

Once you are done with that, take half of your pieces of toast and place them on a cookie sheet. put you cheese on top of the toast and set it aside for now.

Now it is time to boil the water for the eggs. We have a pan that is made for soft-boiling eggs and it is wonderful... but sadly it only cooks four eggs and we needed six. So we had to cook some in a pot of boiling water, it was not an easy task!

While your eggs are cooking put the toast with cheese under the broiler to melt.

Once the cheese is melted take it out and place them on your plates.

Your eggs should be almost done by now, when the whites of the eggs is just cooked through the egg is ready. take your eggs and place them on your bread.

Salt and pepper you sandwiches...

And there you have it... a soft-boiled egg sandwich!

   My mom has been making applesauce for us for years... and I absolutely love it! We had some apples just waiting to be made into a yummy applesauce and I told my mama that I would make it for her this time! She told me how to make it and I set out to make applesauce for the first time.

Here is the recipe:

 Apples, peeled and diced (I used about 20-25 apples for this batch)
 1/4 C water
 3 heaping teaspoons sugar
 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Start by preparing your apples.

   Peel your apples...

... cut your apple into in quarters...

... cut out the core...

... and put your apple slices into the food processor to dice them.

Place diced apples into a large pot.

Add your water to the pot, so, your apples will not burn.

Next add in your sugar.

Then add in the cinnamon and stir it all together.

Turn the heat on to a medium-low heat, and mash your apples with a potato masher.

Continue to alternate mashing your apples and stirring your apples until tender. turn off the heat and allow to cool. Refrigerate your applesauce and serve cold.

Enjoy! Lane Elizabeth

Banana Bread

Banana bread is a favorite around this house... we have a family recipe we use. It is my grandma's (Grammy) recipe and it is just wonderful! I thought it was about time that I shared the recipe.

This is the recipe... the yellow one is my Grammy's handwriting, and the white one is my Mama's handwriting.

 Here is the recipe -

1/2 C oil
1 C sugar
2 eggs
3 bananas
2 C flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
3 T milk
1/2 t vanilla

1. Beat oil and sugar
2. Add in eggs and then mix
3. Add in bananas and mix
4. In another bowl mix flour, soda, powder, and salt
5. Mix this into your wet mixture
6. Add milk and vanilla
7. Pour into prepared pans
8. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour

This recipe makes one loaf of bread... I doubled the recipe.

So here goes... start by measuring out the oil.

Then add in the sugar.

Beat the oil and sugar together until combined.

Add in your eggs...

 ... and beat until combined.

Now it is time to prepare the bananas.

   We put our over-ripe bananas into the freezer and then use them for our banana bread.

Take your frozen banana and cut both ends off.

Then take your knife and slice the skin down the banana length wise on both sides.

Hold the banana in both hands and twist... the skin will pull away. Cut the banana up into small pieces and place them into a bowl.

Take your potato masher and mash the bananas.

Add the bananas into your mixer.

Now it is time to mix your dry ingredients. Start by measuring out the flour.

Then add baking soda...

... baking powder...


... and salt.

Add your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients.

Then add your milk...

... and vanilla.

 Now prepare your pans with cooking spray and flour.

Pour the batter into the pans.


Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Remove your bread from the pans... and there you have it.

Enjoy!  Lane Elizabeth
