Falafel and Egg Sandwich

Yields1 Serving

Ziyad Brand Falafil Mix Breakfast Burger

 1 cup Ziyad Brand Falafil Mix
 ¾ cup cold water
 4 eggs
 ½ english (seedless) cucumber, diced
 side plate with Ziyad Pickled Wild Cucumbers and Ziyad Nablus Green Cracked Olives
 canola oil for frying
Tahini Sauce
 ¼ cup Award Winning Ziyad Brand Tahini Paste
 ¼ cup water
 3 lemon juice
 ¼ tsp Ziyad Brand Garlic Powder
 2 cloves garlic, peeled and slightly crushed
 salt & pepper to taste

Combine the falafel mix and cold water, cover and let stand for 30 minutes.


Add a couple of inches of oil to a large skillet or cast iron pan. Form the falafel mixture into 4 patties and fry for a few minutes on each side, until golden brown.


Drain most of the oil from the pan but leave just enough to fry the eggs.


Crack them one at a time into the pan and fry on medium high heat until the whites are set and the yolk is done to your liking.


To make the sauce, combine Ziyad Brand Tahini and water until smooth. Don't worry if it seems grainy. Keep whisking or stirring and it will smooth out. (Note: There may be a layer of sesame oil, this is natural, simply stir with a spoon to incorporate.) Add the lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. If you like a bit of heat, add a few red pepper flakes. Fold in the crushed garlic.


Assemble the sandwiches by placing a generous dollop of tahini sauce on the bottom of each roll, top with a falafel patty, a handful of diced cucumbers and a fried egg.
