Bacon and Egg Salad Sandwich with Dukkah and Peppery Greens

Drool. If you love the classic egg salad sandwich, you’ll really love this one. Ran¬†across¬†this on twitter – and I can’t wait to try it. AND if you’re wondering what the hell Dukkah is:

“Duqqa¬†(also spelled¬†dukkah¬†or¬†dukka) is an¬†Egyptian¬†side dish¬†consisting of a mixture of¬†herbs,¬†nuts, usually¬†hazelnut, and¬†spices. It is typically used as a¬†dip¬†with¬†bread¬†or fresh vegetables, and eaten as an¬†hors d’Ňďuvre. Pre-made versions of duqqa can be bought in the spice markets of¬†Cairo, with the simplest version being crushed¬†mint, salt and pepper which are sold in paper cones. The packaged variety is found in markets that is composed of parched wheat flour mixed with¬†cumin¬†and¬†caraway.”
