Open-Faced Sandwiches with Ricotta, Arugula, and Fried Egg - a Perfect Fried Egg Recipe"This was even better than I had expected. It was fast and easy to make. I used fat free ricotta since that was what I had on hand. Yummy!!" – AJ Vogt
Who says you can’t eat a sandwich with a fork? To prepare, preheat your broiler. Coat both sides of bread with cooking spray and broil on each side until lightly toasted. Gently toss 2 cups of arugula, 2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil, 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Set your salad aside. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil. With the skillet still over medium heat, crack 4 eggs into the pan and cook for two minutes. Cover and cook for a couple of minutes more until the whites are set. After removing the eggs from the heat, combine 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 3/4 cup park-skim ricotta cheese, 1 ounce of grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme in a small bowl and spread over your toasted bread slices. Add some of your salad and an egg to each of the bread slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
How can something be this easy to make and ready in just 15 minutes?
Fried Egg Sandwich with Sriracha
"Brilliant. I love runny and not dried up eggs. What a great way to start a day :)" – Penny
It doesn’t get much simpler than this Asian twist on a favorite comfort food! After melting 1 teaspoon of butter in a nonstick skillet, fry the eggs to your preference. We strongly recommend runny! While cooking your eggs, toast your bread and spread 1 teaspoon of butter on one side of each slice. Place a slice of cheddar cheese on each piece of toast and gently place an egg on top of the cheese followed by spinach leaves and as much Sriracha sauce as you can handle! Cover with another piece of toast and you’re finished!
Criminally easy and quick! Just 7 minutes!
Grilled Ham, Egg and Cheese Sandwich
"Can you say breakfast, lunch and dinner?" – Paola
These sandwiches are too tasty to be true! Over medium-high heat, fry 12 slices of pancetta in a large nonstick skillet until you reach the perfect crispiness. Place the pancetta on paper towels but don’t drain or clean the skillet. In an extra-large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add four bread slices topped with 2 slices of provolone. Add a pinch of black pepper and cook until the cheese melts. While your bread is toasting, heat the skillet used for the pancetta over medium heat. Crack 4 eggs into the skillet and cook until your whites are set but keep your yolks runny! Place 6 pancetta slices and 2 fried eggs on top of each of the cheesy toasts. Add chopped onions, Parmesan cheese and 3 basil leaves. Top with another slice of bread and take a big bite!
Good for four or, if you’re hungry, just one! Either way, they’re ready in 20 minutes!
Fried Egg and Avocado Sandwich"My husband and I love this recipe… It cannot get any better than this" – Cherrie
Paula Deen certified so you know it’s delicious! Fry 4 slices of bacon in a small skillet over medium heat until crispy enough to crunch when you bite it. Remove from the pan and place on paper towels. Drain the grease from the skillet but reserve just a bit. Spread butter on both sides of the bread and toast both sides in a separate skillet on medium heat. Mix 4 ounces of cream cheese, 1 teaspoon of minced parsley, and 1 teaspoon of minced green onions in a small bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and spread onto 1 side of each of your toast slices after you have removed them from the skillet. Using the same skillet as you used for your bacon, fry the eggs over medium-low heat breaking the yolk. Place each egg on top of a piece of toast followed by 2 slices of bacon, 2 slices of tomato, and 2 slices of avocado. Cover with another slice of toast.
This delicious treat is ready in just 20 minutes!
Fried Salami Breakfast Sandwich
"Fancy enough for guests, and if you cook the onions up the night before, they come together in a couple of minutes" – Jean
You’re going to wish you discovered this recipe sooner! In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté your sliced half-onion in 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil. While two English muffins are toasting, move your onions to one side of the pan and crack in 2 eggs with the skillet over medium heat. After 2 minutes, add a slice of Provolone cheese over each egg and continue cooking until the egg whites have set. When your English muffins are toasted, spread the mayonnaise and mustard on one side and gently place an egg onto the muffin. Fry 8 slices of salami for just about 1 minutes per side. Add your onions followed by 4 slices of the salami. Dig in!
Now find something else to do with the rest of your morning because this only takes 10 minutes!
Kale, Bacon and Egg Whole-Wheat Breakfast Sandwich
"What a delicious hearty breakfast sandwich!" – Millie
It’s so good, you’re going to want to keep this one a secret! Start by toasting your whole-wheat bun and spread with either mayonnaise or butter. Fry a couple of pieces of bacon in a medium skillet until crisp and set aside on a plate of paper towels. Remove most of the bacon grease but leave a little for taste. Over medium-high heat, cook a minced clove garlic and 1 1/2 cups of minced kale tossing frequently. Add salt to your preferred taste. Keep the kale moist as you cook it by adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of water. Once the kale is tender, sprinkle with white wine vinegar and remove from the pan. Clean the skillet and fry the egg in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat. Place the kale on the bottom half of the whole-wheat bun followed by the bacon. Next add the egg and the top bun.
Your breakfast, lunch or dinner is ready in 15 minutes!

"BIG HUGS to you and this salad!" Holly
A delicious combination of apples, pecans, arugula, red onion and if you're up for it - cranberries. Prep is simple as it's just a matter of making the lemon vinaigrette (lemon, maple syrup, olive oil and salt and pepper) then toasting the pine nuts and tossing everything together. Lovely!

2. Arugula Salad with Olive Oil, Lemon, and Parmesan Cheese
"This is the simplest salad. Amazingly light and tasty. Perfect!" Pam J
A simple salad that will add just a little ping to any meal (or mouthful). Pop everything together, toss well and then shave some Parmesan on top - easy as that. The recipe says 10 minutes preparation time but we think if it even takes you 5 minutes you must have had a nap half way through!
Total time: 10 minutes
3. Easy Arugula Salad
"UNBELIEVABLE. The Parmesan and the dressing go together perfectly and really complement the zippiness of the arugula." Naomi Witzke
This is a wonderful side dish to accompany any meal, with the ingredients blending together beautifully with a simple dressing. Alongside the arugula it includes; cherry tomatoes, pine nuts, avocado and parmesan as well as a delicious rice vinegar and olive oil dressing.
Preparation couldn't be simpler, just pop all the ingredients (except the avocado) together and mix. The avocado left to one side can now be sliced over the top of the salad to help attract the hungry hordes (not that they need much attracting).
Total time: 15 minutes
4. Arugula Salad with Lemon Balsamic Dressing

Another wonderfully simple side salad, this one has a great lemon balsamic vinegar dressing that adds a delightful ping to offset the arugula bitter. Combined with sweet cherry tomatoes this is one of those salads you need to get on your plate quickly before it vanishes.
Preparation is only 5 minutes, just half the cherry tomatoes and add with lemon zest to the arugula then create the dressing - combine and pop off your chef's hat, it's done.

Cook the pasta - follow the packet instructions, nice and easy. 2. Create the dressing - combine the olive oil, lemon juice and zest and add salt and pepper. 3.

"Pretty sure I could eat this every day. I love simple pasta recipes, and you can’t go wrong with arugula, garlic, and parmesan. Yum!" Taylor
If you're anything like me you were probably salivating just reading the title of this little beauty. While cooking the pasta, heat up some olive oil in a frying pan and add sliced garlic, cooking until a nice gold or very light brown color. Then add the olive oil and garlic to your cooked and drained pasta along with the arugula and Parmesan.
So many delicious and complimentary flavors bouncing around the tongue in this recipe, it's an absolute winner.

7. Fresh Tomato and Arugula Pasta
"YUMMY and a great thing to use up fresh tomatoes!" Carrie Wilson
This is a similar recipe to the previous one in terms of how it's made and as with the linguini recipe it's filling enough to be perfect for lunches or dinners.
You begin cooking the pasta then get a frying pan or skillet and cook off the onion and garlic in olive oil, add chopped tomatoes and red pepper before stirring it through the arugula. Once you've drained the pasta it's just a question of adding the skillet ingredients and topping with pine nuts and slivers of parmesan.

8. Arugula Pasta Salad
"I love love love all the fresh flavor in this! Such a perfect healthy pasta salad!" Joanne
A great salad to have on its own for lunch or dinner as well as a delicious accompaniment to the meat of the day. Cooking the pasta takes the most time and for everything else it's all just a matter of popping it in bowls and mixing. First mix the main ingredients arugula, capers and Parmesan. Then mix the dressing ingredients together (includes basil, garlic and lemon juice) and coat the salad with the loveliness.

9. Quick And Easy Goat Cheese, Raisin, Walnut And Arugula Flatbread Pizza
"Perfect pizza as per usual, and I'm loving the arugula (or rocket as we call it in Australia). I add it to every single pizza I make! I'm addicted. Try it with a wedge of lemon?" Bec
As the title says, this a lovely simple dish that's great to whip up in a hurry.
Grab some of your favorite flatbreads, toast them in the oven for a few minutes then top with the goat cheese, raisins and walnuts and pop back in the oven to melt the cheese and warm the ingredients. While you are waiting, make the arugula dressing and toss it through the leaves, then just top the pizza with it. Simple and delicious as that!
Total time: 15 minutes
10. Arugula Pizza with Poached Eggs
"This pizza was great!! very simple and even my whole family of completely different picky taste buds enjoyed it! I would definitely recommend buying a thin pizza crust as said in the recipe" cewqqq
This is another of those delicious titles that gets my saliva buds saliving*. It may just be the mention of poached eggs or it may be too close to lunch time but I need to eat this now!
You can use ready-made pizza dough or use the flatbread trick from the previous recipe to form the base. If you do use the flatbread trick remember not to cook for as long.
Start cooking the base then add the cheese and return to the oven. Cook your poached egg as you like it and toss the arugula with the rest of the ingredients. Then just take out your base and top with the arugula and egg. Delicious!
