The Rocket Sandwich

I found the recipe for this sandwich on This Homemade Life.  I was happy that I had some baby arugula sitting in my fridge and decided that this sandwich was going to be my lunch.  The arugula spread on this rocket sandwich is out of this world (I couldn't help myself)!  I know I really love something when I'm eating alone and yet I find myself talking out loud, telling someone who isn't really there, how amazing my sandwich tastes.  It really was that good!

The Rocket Sandwich

Arugula Spread

2 cups packed arugula
1 clove garlic, peeled
Lemon juice, squeeze from half a lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup good quality parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Eggs, cooked over easy
Tomato, sliced
Wheat Ciabatta buns, cut in half and lightly toasted

Blend arugula, a good squeeze of lemon juice and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped.  Stream in olive oil until well blended.  Transfer arugula mixture to a bowl and stir in parmesan cheese and mayonnaise.  Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.  Spread arugula spread on cut surfaces of the ciabatta bun.  Place a cooked egg on bottom half of bun followed by sliced tomatoes, a sprinkle of good salt and some baby arugula.  Place top half of bun on top of sandwich and bite into some serious goodness!
