A sandwich full of everyone’s favorite winter produce.

Weekly CSA Recipe

What do you like to do with the bounty of winter greens from Tucson CSA and our local farmers markets? Sometimes I make them disappear in recipes like this Leafy Green Whole Wheat Lasagna or a pot of Spicy Greens and Beans. More recently I’ve been enjoying them for breakfast in this Hearty Winter Sandwich. As its name implies, this Hearty Winter Sandwich is entirely representative of the winter crops that flourish in Baja Arizona.

This Hearty Winter Sandwich is full of seasonal produce.

It starts with two crusty slices of levain from Barrio Bread, which you can find at Tucson CSA or the Barrio Bread bakery. After the bread has been brushed with olive oil and pan toasted, each piece is respectively lathered with garlicky hummus and a spoonful of mostly-sweet-but-slightly-bitter orange marmalade from Sleeping Frog Farms. Once the bookends to this Hearty Winter Sandwich are taken care of, you can focus on the heart of the sandwich: sautéed winter greens (think arugula, kale, mustard greens), melt-in-your-mouth sweet potatoes, and a fried egg.

Yes, I went there. A fried egg with a yolk that, when poked, will generously coat and improve the flavors of everything it touches. Can we just agree that a runny fried egg should be added to everything?

A runny fried egg takes this Hearty Winter Sandwich over the top.

Ingredients
Servings: sandwiches
Instructions
  1. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Use one tablespoon of olive oil to brush both sides of each slice of bread. Toast each piece of bread in the pan for 1-2 minutes on each side, until the bread is toasty and golden brown.
  2. Spread two teaspoons each of orange marmalade on two slices of bread. Spread one tablespoon each of hummus on the remaining two slices of bread.
  3. Heat one teaspoon of olive oil in the same pan over medium-low heat. Sauté the chopped greens with a pinch of salt and pepper for about 30 seconds, or until the greens are wilted. Divide the greens in half and place them on the pieces of bread lathered with marmalade.
  4. Divide the sweet potatoes in half and layer them on top of the greens.
  5. Heat the remaining two teaspoons of olive oil the same pan over medium-low heat. Crack the eggs into the pan and sprinkle each with a pinch of salt and pepper. Once the whites have set, flip the eggs and cook for another 20-30 seconds, or until they reach the point of preferred doneness.
  6. Place each egg on top of the bread layered with greens and sweet potatoes. Place the pieces of bread with hummus on the top of the sandwich. Cut in half and serve.
