No I’m not talking about making fun of chickens! This is a recipe for a sandwich filling that I found in a gorgeous little old recipe book. The book is post-war and talks about rationing still being in place. It’s actually vegetarian but tastes like roast chicken. My kids love it. I won’t lie, it doesn’t look pretty so please excuse the pictures and try it for yourself. The recipe makes enough for four rounds of sandwiches. Enjoy!
1 small onion finely diced
1 tomato finely diced
1 small handful of grated cheese
In a little olive oil gently fry onion and tomato until onion is translucent and a lot of the moisture is gone from the tomato. Add a sprinkle of mixed herbs and a pinch of salt if you want. In a separate bowl whisk egg and then add to pan stirring constantly (think scrambled eggs). When egg is just set turn off heat and add cheese. Stir in until well combined and cheese is melted. Set aside to cool down (will keep in fridge for a day). Spread in sandwiches and enjoy.
