Simple Home-Made Bread Sandwich

This is a very very simple breakfast or an evening snack which a kid can even make. Usually children as well as teens learn to make these kind of dishes as their first dish, a toasted bread and an omelete usually eaten with an onion or carrot inside. I may mention this as the first dish I ever tried in my childhood. I think me and my sisters tasted and learned this from one of our cousin sister and was very eager to try it at our home. Most of the saturdays when we were free from school and all the other busy things, we, me and two sisters used to make this and enjoyed it together watching TV-the saturday evening movie. It was easy to split the job of doing this as 3 main steps are included. One of us will be engaged with toasting the bread, and one will be assigned to cutting the cabbage and the other one into beating and making omeletes. Usually me or my elder sister took the responsibility of cooking them on fire top and my younger sister in butter-smearing and preparing the final product keeping one upon the other. It was really fun doing it all together and most happy part was having it together.This recipe reminds me of my sweet child-hood. Dedicating this to all the children out there enjoying their child-hood and who bump into their kitchen for cooking once in a while. My steps will be in the way as if to help even a starter in cooking. Because most of us would have started our learning of cooking by making a sandwich. Enjoy.

1. Bread- 6
2. Butter- 2 tbsp
3. Cabbage shredded- 2 cups
4. Egg-2
5. Salt and Pepper taste

Preparation Method:
1. Toast the bread both sides in a toaster or in a pan to a little brown.Do not toast too much and make it crispy. It must be still soft inside and crispy outside.

2. In a pan, add one tbsp of butter, add the shredded cabbage. Sprinkle some pepper powder and salt if you are using unsalted butter.
3. Saute till cabbage is soft and half cooked. Do not add any water. Keep aside.

4. Beat the eggs with an egg-beater or an egg-whisk or in a deep glass with a fork.
5. Add salt to taste.
6. In a pan, add 2 tsp of oil and make an omelet by pouring this into the pan and spreading it by just tilting the pan.

7. Make a flat thin omelete. Keep aside.

8. On the toasted breads apply some butter on one-side with a knife.
9. Keep half or 1/4th of the omelete according to your need on the buttered bread.
10. Close the bread with another bread loaf with the buttered side facing down.

11. Enjoy them hot with some orange juice for break-fast or as an evening snack.
