It’s Cheese Sandwich Week here at The Veg Space! I’m taking part in the #BetterWithLeerdammer challenge in conjunction with Leerdammer. This tasty cheese is extremely versatile and can be used in all sort of simple but delicious sandwiches, so I’ll be sharing my top 5 favourite cheese sandwich ideas every day this week. (I hope regular readers don’t feel too bombarded with daily posts – normal service will resume next week, I promise!).
Day 1 uses Leerdammer Original in this juicy New York Bagel – a chewy sesame seed bagel filled with creamy smashed avocado and peppery rocket, topped with a soft-yolk poached egg.
(I’m loving Leerdammer’s new TV advert….watch it here – “You’d be a sandwich short of a picnic to use anything else”!)
Please note: this recipe is not vegan. This blog has been vegan since January 2016 but recipes from before that date are vegetarian but not necessarily vegan
The New York Cheese & Avocado Bagel
- 1 sesame seed bagel
- 1 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
- 1 slice Leerdammer Original cheese
- half an avocado
- handful fresh rocket
- 1 free range egg
- Slice the bagel in half and toast. Mix together the mayonnaise and mustard and slather over the bottom half of the bagel. Top with the slice of cheese.
- Mash the avocado with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Add to the bagel and follow with the rocket.
- Crack the egg into a bowl or mug and add a drop or two of vinegar to the white. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, then whisk to create a whirlpool. Pour the egg in to the centre of the whirlpool and lower the heat, then cook for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper and add to the bagel.
- Serve immediately!
