326. Guacamole Egg Sandwich

a meal on its own

The first time I tasted avocado in a sandwich was some years back when my son suggested it. Initially,I just looked at him thinking "what avocado in a sandwich"! I allowed him to make the sandwiches for us, not wanting to deter his culinary exploratory journey. The sandwiches were delicious and added a unique flavour and since then avocados feature a lot in the sandwiches whenever they are in the season. For this sandwich I have used eggs and carrot but feel free to use any other fillings of your choice, sweet pepper, fish, chicken, cucumber, tomatoes,onions etc. It was the end of the week meal whereby I had only carrots left in the fridge besides the avocado and eggs.
