What Are Sandwich Thins?

Sandwich thins are bread rolls that are thinner and have fewer calories than standard sandwich rolls. We recommend using multigrain sandwich thins, but feel free to use any variety of whole-grain sandwich thins. If you can't find sandwich thins, you can substitute them with multigrain English muffins.

Cook the Eggs in Rosemary Olive Oil

For a boost of flavor, we cook eggs in olive oil infused with savory rosemary. Fresh chopped rosemary and olive oil are heated together, bringing out the aromatic flavors of the rosemary. Eggs are cooked in the rosemary olive oil until the whites are set on both sides.

How to Cut a Tomato into Slices

The best way to cut a tomato into slices is with a serrated knife. With a serrated knife, hold the tomato firmly and trim away the stem end.

Cook about 1 minute or until whites are set but yolks are still runny. Break yolks with spatula. Flip eggs; cook on other side until done. Remove from heat.

  • Place the bottom halves of the toasted sandwich thins on four serving plates. Divide spinach among sandwich thins on plates. Top each with two of the tomato slices, an egg and 1 tablespoon of the feta cheese. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Top with the remaining sandwich thin halves.
