Open faced sandwiches are a favorite lunch and dinner option in our household.  They are quick and easy to make, generally pretty healthy, and easily adaptable based on what you have available in your fridge and pantry.  Our versions almost always start with a generous layer of coarsely mashed avocado and then we top with whatever veggies we like.

Hard boiled egg is a great topping option for a bit more bulk and protein while still keeping it meatless.  This particular version is taken to the next level by the addition of a chipotle compound butter that is spread on the bread before toasting.  It adds a nice smoky flavor without being overpowering.  The chipotle butter was so great, we’re already dreaming up lots of other ways we can use it.
