This recipe let's you get a fried egg, a lemony arugula salad and a grilled mozzarella cheese sandwich all in one dish. Bonus: You’ll also add creamy, sliced avocados to the sandwich. And that’s a good thing because avocados are packed with potassium and eye-friendly lutein and zeaxanthin. Serve these as open-faced sandwiches for two.



1. Brush one side of each bread slice (Try one of our favorites: 21 Whole Grains and Seeds Dave’s Killer Bread!) with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Flip over 2 slices and top with the mozzarella (or provolone) cheese. Top with the other bread slices, oiled-side up, to form sandwiches and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Add the arugula and onion, gently toss, and set aside.
3. Preheat a grill pan over medium-high. Grill the sandwiches until rich grill marks form and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes per side.
4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large stick-resistant skillet over medium. Add the eggs and fry until desired doneness, about 4 to 5 minutes.
5. Top grilled cheese sandwiches with avocado slices, arugula salad, and fried eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy with a fork and knife.
