  • 6 egg frittata or 6 sliced hard-boiled eggs
  • Baby kale or arugula
  • Half a red onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Ciabatta loaf or focaccia
  • Pepper jack or mozzarella cheese


  1. Begin by chopping the olives by hand until fine, then chop the red onions by hand until finely diced.
  2. If not using hard boiled eggs- whip whole eggs with a whisk and pour into a greased pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook to desired firmness.
  3. Combine chopped red onion and olives with garlic, olive oil salt, and pepper to taste (optional: add dried red pepper flakes for some heat).
  4. Slice and lightly toast ciabatta loaf or focaccia. Melted slice of cheese over one slice of bread.
  5. Build sandwich with olive salad on top of melted cheese, then layer on the eggs, and top it off with some baby kale or arugula tossed with a little olive oil and salt.
  6. Cut just before serving. Serve warm or wrap in paper towels, then plastic; to chill at least 2 hours. So that sandwich can be made 12 hours ahead if kept chilled.
