Potato Bacon And Egg Grill Sandwich

I did a hearty and warm salad for dinner last night. No pasta and no rice, I thought to myself. I whipped up a hot pot of pumpkin and potato soup. Drawing inspiration from a Lyonnaise salad that I make quite often, I decided to make a warm version of it with some meat. I had a pack of bacon bits conveniently sitting in the fridge [everytime I write fridge, I am tempted to hit backspace and change it to refrigerator simply because I feel very guilty about butchering such a proper little word. But today I am going to stick to my guns!]. We all enjoyed the warm salad and it was very more-ish indeed on that chilly evening along with a hot cup of coup.

The next day with plenty of salad leftover, I got my 4-sandwich capacity, grilled sandwich maker out and grilled the salad with some chili sauce. It was a surprisingly delicious meal and was oddly comforting too. Earlier that day I had bought the first issue of the MasterChef Australia magazine and I had an extremely lazy and rlaxing lunch sifting through the pages.
