Open face Egg Sandwich with Collard Greens is a hearty and filling breakfast that is going to fuel you up until lunch time.
Today I have a simple Open face egg sandwich recipe under Breakfast theme. Sunny side up egg is served over a bed of sauteed collard greens and tomatoes and crispy toast. This open face sandwich is a hearty and filling breakfast which is definitely keep you going until lunch time.
Eggs are my whole family favorite and I keep looking for new ways to incorporate eggs into our diet. So when I saw this simple open face egg sandwich recipe in Food Network magazine, I knew we will like it. I made it for breakfast, but it will be perfect for lunch and dinner too.Collard greens are hearty and tougher green when compared with spinach. It also has a slight bitterness in the background. Collard greens are widely used in Southern cuisine. I bought a bag of frozen chopped collards to try and this recipe seemed like the perfect dish to make with them. I loved the texture and the bite they lend to the sandwich.
Eggs can be easily subbed with either scrambled paneer or tofu. Mashed up chickpeas or white beans will do the trick too. So saute some greens, top them with your favorite protein and serve with some tangy, spicy avocados for a delicious breakfast or brunch and Enjoy!!

That's one hearty and healthy breakfast recipe Pavani. Well balanced one.
Lovely sandwich, especially the ingredients you used for making this super healthy sandwich. With less efforts, am sure one can enjoy this sandwich without any fuss.
While making the breakfast series for one of the BM , I realized that no breakfast is complete without eggs. It was hard for me as they required a sunny side up...I had made a mock sunny side with paneer, ..ha ha....Your post reminds me of it.
The toast with greens and egg looks very appealing and would definitely make an excellent breakfast / Lunch.
This looks like a filling meal. It has all textures and flavours combined to form an amazing dish. The open sandwich looks super inviting..
A great recipe to use collard greens Oavani. I don't use that too often and I just love this recipe. This is perfect blend of protein and carb in the morning.

Not only are collards very healthy but you've made the open sandwich look so delicious. Its a nice health tip to use only one slice of bread to make an open sandwich therefore cutting down on carbs.
