Please don’t hate me for this comment: sometimes I dislike sandwiches.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the ease for which a sandwich travels but sometimes I feel like it’s all about the bread and not about the fillings.  There can be some really great sandwich fillings out there!

I’m the person who smashes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich together and then pulls it apart to eat it slice by slice.

 So instead I often find myself eating toast lathered in different, easy toppings.  I like toast because it’s not flimsy and can still easily be eaten without utensil but I have the ability to stack twice as much filling as a normal sandwich.  It’s a win-win situation in my book.

This pea toast is delicious, easy, and makes for a super healthy lunch.  I almost always have hardboiled eggs in the refrigerator which makes this come together in no time!
