Total Time: 10 minutes
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Oil – Necessary Quantity (2-3 teaspoons will do fine)
Oven Roasted Pumpkin – 3 to 4 slices
Sage Leaves – 4
Choice of bread – 2 slices
Eggs – 1 or 2 (depending on size)
Mozzarella Slices – 2
Butter – 1 tablespoon
Salt – To Taste
Ground Pepper – To Taste
Place a nonstick pan over medium flame and pour the oil into it. Once the oil starts simmering, break the eggs into it and cook it. If you have a rather large egg at hand, use just one. Otherwise you can opt for two eggs. The amount of time you need to cook the egg depends on whether you like hard, soft or medium cooked.
Remove the eggs after they have been cooked. Add the butter to the pan. As it heats up, add the sage leaves and flip them for a minute or so until they become crisp. Remove the leaves from the pan and store separately.
Place a slice of bread on a plate. Top it with these ingredients in the following manner. First comes the mozzarella slice.Then comes a crispy sage leaf, the roasted pumpkin and the fried egg. Sprinkle salt and pepper according to your preferences. Top this layer with another slice of mozzarella cheese and then cover the entire arrangement with the remaining slice of bread.
Add ½ tablespoon of butter to the pan at medium heat. As soon as the butter has melted and starts simmering, add the sandwich. Cook the sandwich slowly until the bread has turns a shade of golden brown. Slowly flip the sandwich around and wait for the other side to cook as well. Turn the heat down to low this time as the second side will cook faster. Once both sides of the bread have become brown and toasty, and the cheese has melted completely, transfer the sandwich to a plate. Serve hot with a sauce of your liking.
