Triples — sandwiches like the ones you see in the photo above — were a staple of my childhood back home in Peru. And yet, I hadn’t really made them for myself or my kids until late last year. I was craving one from a specific sandwich place back home, when I wondered out loud: “Why can’t I just make it at home? It’s not like it’s that complicated…”
The next day, I went shopping for all the ingredients and requested my daughter’s help making these delicious sandwiches that contain three simple, but healthy ingredients: avocados, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs. And I was so happy when she took her first bite and instantly fell in love with it! Here’s my version of this yummy sandwich (I use 4 slices of bread instead of the traditional 3).
INGREDIENTS: (For one sandwich)
1/4 Avocado cut in thin slices or mushed up
1/2 Roma Tomato thinly sliced
1 Hard boiled egg sliced
4 thin slices of bread
Spread some mayonnaise on one of the slices and layer the slices of avocado on top and sprinkle them with a bit of lime juice so it doesn’t turn black. Cover it with the second slice of bread and put the slices of tomato on top. Cover with a third slice and put slices of hard boiled egg. Cover with fourth and final slice of bread.
Get rid of the bread crusts and cut sandwich into triangles.
Can a healthy sandwich get any simpler than that?
