Ingredient For a Club Sandwich

This recipe is for meat lovers like myself who would love to taste a little meat in everything and like our bread a little brown and a little burnt.

Four slices of bread

One raw egg

One small seasoning cube

One small onion[optional]

Salt and pepper to taste

One fresh plum tomato

Half of a small cabbage

One tablespoon margarine

Three tablespoons of canned beef or one sausage


1. Place your slices of bread on the work surface and carefully cut off the crusts.

2. Break the egg into a little bowl and add the salt, pepper and seasoning cube to taste.

3. Chop the sausages into bits, if you are using sausages.

4. Wash the tomatoes, cut open and remove the seeds.

5. Rinse off thoroughly and chop or dice.

6. Dice the onions.

7. Wash the cabbage thoroughly and shred with a grater.

8. Mix the cabbage and the mayonnaise in a separate bowl.

9. Place two slices of bread flat on the work surface.

10. Some of the egg on one surface of each slice of the bread.

11. Avoid putting too much egg that would soak through the slice of bread but also ensure that it is placed evenly over each slice.

12. Place the sausages on one slice of bread on the same surface that has been covered with egg,

13. Ensure that the sausage doesn’t get to the very edges of the slice. You can leave about one millimetre from the edges of the slice. [ Do same if you are using canned beef].

14. Add the tomatoes, onions, cabbage.

15. Place the other slice of bread on this with the surface having egg on it facing the cabbage. At the end of this the two sides of the sandwich you are to hold should be free of any moisture or egg.

16. Repeat this process with the other two slices of egg.

17. Take out your toaster and grease mildly with some margarine.

18. Place the slices of bread on the toaster and cover for about 10 minutes. You can leave in the toaster for about five minutes then begin to check every minute till it attains your required browness and also to ensure it doesn’t become charred.

Now your sandwich is ready to be enjoyed alongside a cold beverage.

Note: A lot of items used for these recipes are optional, the basic thing you require for a sandwich are essentially bread, margarine [or butter] and an egg [either boiled, fried or just raw as you prefer].

Note also that I did not include separate cooking instructions for the sausage because I am assuming you can cook a sausage.

Also, if you would rather use fried egg for the first recipe rather than a boiled egg, ensure you fry the egg in as little oil as possible so that the sausage won’t be too soggy. Scramble the eggs while frying and still mash them up into little pieces after frying.
