Recipe: Comoros Sandwich

Serves 1-2

Piled high with juicy, sweet tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers, and rich eggs and mayo, this sandwich is popular in Comoros.


8″ piece of baguette (I had to buy wide-style – “rustique” so it holds more)
1-2 tomatoes, sliced
1 cucumber, sliced (or 1/2 an english cucumber)
3 hard-boiled eggs
mayonnaise, to taste


Slice a baguette in half lengthwise… watch your fingers!

Spread with a thin layer of mayo. Or thick, if that’s more your style.

Next, place juicy slices of ripe tomatoes. The juices will seep into the bread a bit and make for excellent flavor.

Add the cukes. I used English cukes so I didn’t have to peel them.

Add a sunny layer of hard-boiled eggs. Ava loves hard-boiled eggs. She’s so wise for her age.

Cover with the top half of the bread and …

… slice up to eat! Share if you dare…
