Egg And Avocado Breakfast Sandwich
Meat-free but not too virtuous, it’s healthy and satisfying.
SERVINGS: 6 SANDWICHES
1 red bell pepper
¼ medium mango, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
9 large eggs
¼ cup whole milk
¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter
¾ cup grated extra sharp cheddar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 kaiser rolls, split, lightly toasted
1 avocado, sliced
3 ounces drained pickled cherry peppers or Peppadew peppers, thinly sliced
Heat broiler. Roast bell pepper on a broilerproof baking sheet, turning occasionally, until blackened in spots, 12–15 minutes. Place in a small bowl; cover tightly. Let sit 10 minutes. Peel and remove seeds.
Purée bell pepper, mango, brown sugar, vinegar, orange juice, lime juice, and cayenne in a blender, thinning with water as needed, until smooth; season with salt.
Do Ahead: Hot sauce can be made 1 week ahead. Cover and chill.
Whisk eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook eggs, stirring, until mostly set but still runny in parts, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in cheese; season with salt and pepper. Build sandwiches with rolls, hot sauce, eggs, avocado, and cherry peppers.
