Deluxe Sandwich


  • 2 large carrots;
  • 1 spring/green onion;
  • 1 organic lemon;
  • 50 g mayonnaise;
  • 2 tbsp Maille Old Style Dijon Mustard;
  • ½ tsp of paprika;
  • Salt and pepper to taste;
  • 4 slices of white (or whole grain bread)
  • Extra virgin olive oil for frying
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 slices of cheddar
  • 25 g of swiss chard
  • 4-5 slices of ham or pastrami (perfect use of leftover ham from holiday dinners!)
  • 1 tbsp fried onions (for texture and an added crunch)
Prep time:
approx. 20 minutes
Recipe yields:
2 sandwiches


Wash and cut carrots, halving them lengthwise. Then, proceed to wash spring onion, shake dry and cut into fine pieces. Rinse the lemon and pat dry.

For the sandwich spread, cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a small dish. Add mayonnaise, Maille Old Style Dijon mustard and paprika, stir and season with salt and pepper. Put this aside to be used as the spread at the end of the sandwich building process.

Toast 2 slices of white or whole grain bread on both sides (in a toaster or with butter in a grill pan). Roast carrots with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil until fully cooked (about 3 minutes). Crack egg into the same pan, season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 1 minute, turn and cover with cheddar and fry until golden brown (don’t overcook the yolk – you want it to be a bit runny in the middle). Brush bottom slice with a combination of mustard and mayonnaise. Garnish with swiss chard, slices of pastrami, fried egg, carrots, spring onions, fried onions and the top slice of bread.


For a vegetarian spin, simply replace the pastrami with smoked tofu or tempeh.
