August is National Sandwich Month.

Usually, we head to our Sandwich Glossary and pick a different type of sandwich each time we make one.

Go beyond the everyday tuna or grilled cheese to something more celebratory, bánh mì or a Croque Monsieur?

With the beautiful summer tomatoes at hand, we’re adding them to every type of sandwich.

Here, an open-faced sandwich for breakfast or brunch—although you can have one any time.

Think of it as a variation of Eggs Benedict or a sophisticated Egg McMuffin.

If you’d rather have a more conventional sandwich, make a:

  • Classic Caprese Sandwich
  • Grilled Cheese Caprese with Balsamic Syrup Drizzle
  •

    RECIPE: CAPRESE BREAKFAST & BRUNCH SANDWICH

    Ingredients For 4 Open-Face Sandwiches

  • 2 English muffins (makes 4 sandwiches)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Black pepper
  •  
    Preparation

    1. THINLY SLICE the tomatoes and mozzarella. Lightly toast the English muffins (this can be done while you continue prepping).

    2. POACH the eggs: Add a few inches of water to a cooking pot and bring to a light simmer. Add the white vinegar and swirl lightly.

    3. CRACK the eggs and slowly guide them into the swirling water. Allow them to cook for 2-3 minutes (the whites should be firm but flexible when removed).

    4. REMOVE the eggs from the pot with a slotted spoon and carefully air-dry them on paper towels.

    5. TOP one side of the toasted English muffins with a slice of mozzarella, tomato and poached egg. Add the basil, and lightly drizzle with balsamic. Garnish with a grind of black pepper.
