Italian Breakfast Sandwich

This is an open faced sandwich with some interesting ingredients that work together well. You can assemble it any way you'd like but I'd suggest placing the thin sliced tomatoes on top for the visual benefit. Here are the ingredients for an open face sandwich for two.

  • 4 slices of bread of your choice lightly toasted
  • Ranch Dressing to taste
  • 4 thin slices of red onion
  • 2 Peperoncini thinly sliced
  • 2-4 scrambled eggs
  • 4 slices Provolone cheese thinly sliced
  • 8 slices tomato, thinly sliced
  1. Spread ranch dressing on the lightly toasted bread.
  2. Layer the thinly sliced onion, peperoncini, scrambled egg, provolone, and tomatoes on the bread. Place under broiler keeping a close eye on it till the cheese melts. 
  3. Sprinkle a little dried basil on top before serving.

You can also use a toaster oven to melt the cheese.


  1. Sounds like a good breakfast to me.
    I love this blog.

  2. Oh how I wish you delivered!!! I looks delicious! Have a great weekend!

  3. Mmm will have to give this a try, looks yummy!

  4. I think I'll pass on the Tuscan peppers, but the rest sounds absolutely delicious. I'm sure I could make substitution with something that has a better relationship with my tummy! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. I've had my pancakes .. but it sounds great for lunch!!

  6. Perfect! These are great ideas that incorporate good nutrition and tasty goodness and assemble quickly.

  7. At our house I will pass the tomato on to hubby and the onions we'll both ignore..and that would still make a great sandwich:)
    Great photo Ellen.

  8. didn't have ranch, so used ceaser,
    didn't have provolone, used marble,
    didn't have peperoni, used dry salami.
    great sandwich with easy exchanges.
    i love recipes like this where the concept is great and can be changed up according to what is on hand.
    thank Ellen....good brunch idea. we liked it. (sadly a garden tomato would be better, i guess we will just have to wait for that again ;(
    but the vine grown ones from the store certainly will do in these winter months.
