Not-so-classic Egg Sandwich
If you’ve spent time in Japan, chances are, you’ve had a Japanese 7 Eleven egg sandwich. Why 7 Eleven? Because it’s where these are traditionally sold in Japan. They’ve become a little bit of a novelty in some US restaurants but are in fact super easy to make at home. This recipe adds an extra twist using whole grain bread and greens to up the nutrition ante.

|1 large||Soft-boiled egg, peeled|
|1-2 Tbsp||Mayonnaise, or more to taste|
|Salt and pepper, to taste|

Place 1 hard-boiled egg in a bowl. Roughly chop with a fork or butter knife. Mix in mayonnaise (adjust the amount to taste), and a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste.
Place one slice of bread on a cutting board. Top with arugula, followed by the egg salad made in step 1.
Add the soft boiled egg to the center of the egg salad.
