Tomato and Kielbasa Salad
This is the perfect breakfast, lunch or supper sandwich. If you love scrambled eggs, you will love this sandwich. Many of us grew up with Western Sandwiches but you don't see them much anymore!
Another old favorite but with a twist. Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches - but with an egg on top. You won't regret trying this one! This is another recipe I sometimes make for dinner, not just lunch!
Love Asparagus? This recipe is my copycat of an appetizer asparagus salad from an Italian restaurant I loved to go to. Now, when asparagus is in season, it is lunch. There is nothing better than this salad if you are an asparagus and feta lover!
