But tonight it's just the Smidge and I, as the Rocketman is working an afternoon shift (don't bother trying to come by and blow our house down because he works locally and is always circling by). Because the Smidge had swimming class, we didn't get home until after 6, so I wanted to make a quick dinner. So here's the scoop on a Rocket Sandwich. It is by no means glamourous. But if anyone's thinking I'm remotely glamourous, then you don't know me very well.
Actually I have to say the Rocket Sandwich is named after its inventor, none other than the Rocketman. He had already invented these when I met him and I have to say they are awesome because: a) they're fast; b) they're delicious; c) you're more than likely to have all the ingredients in the house at any given time; d) if you don't you can make substitutions because, as I eluded to, this isn't cordon bleu cooking; and e) they fill that need for comfort food. Ah yes, they're all that and more.
First decide on whether you're going to use 2 or 3 eggs per sandwich. I went a little crazy tonight and used 3, but usually I just have 2. I'm a bit of a glutton, don't tell. You need to crack them in a frying pan as if you're going to simply fry them. Put two slices of bread in the toaster, then boogie over to the stove and break the sacred rule of frying eggs - break the yolk. Don't balk, just do as you're told.
Then prepare the other ingredients: mayo, ketchup, cheddar cheese. Cut slices of the cheese to line one piece of toast. Add mayo and ketchup, to your heart's content on the other slice of toast. Now this is critical. Once the eggs are cooked through, place them on top of the cheese, so that the heat from the eggs melts the cheese.
No, it's not a lovely photo, I didn't say this was a photography blog. This is a "here's how to not do photography" blog. Stay tuned for more brutal photography.
Then put the two sides of the sandwich together, cut down the middle and enjoy while it's still hot.
Ta da, I introduce to you, the Rocket Sandwich. Not necessarily the best thing for the waistline, but this is not a dieting blog either.
And yes, you guessed it, I'm hooked on Rocketman....and his Rocket sandwiches.
