15-Minute Open-Faced Garlic Sandwich: A Quick & Delicious Lunch Recipe for Busy Moms

Hello, my lovely readers! April has sprung upon us with all its glory, bringing with it warmer weather and blooming flowers. As a busy mom, I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy lunch recipes that I can whip up in no time, especially when the kids are at school and I need something just for me.

Yesterday, I found myself staring into the fridge, trying to find something to make for lunch. You know those days when you’re unsure of what to make, but you don’t want to go out or order in? Well, that was me. As I was rummaging through the fridge (and still pondering what to make), I suddenly remembered a conversation I had with my sweet Emily while we were skiing in Vermont this past winter. She mentioned how much she loved the garlic bread we had at a local restaurant there. So, inspired by her words, I decided to create a simple and delicious open-faced sandwich with a garlicky twist!

As I gathered my ingredients, I couldn’t help but smile, remembering Emily’s excitement as she conquered the slopes on our ski trip. She truly is a fearless and determined young lady.

So, without further ado, let me share my 15-minute open-faced garlic sandwich recipe that’s perfect for those quick lunch breaks!

Lisa’s 15-Minute Open-Faced Garlic Sandwich

– 2 slices of your favorite bread (I used whole wheat)
– 1 ripe avocado
– 1 medium tomato
– 2 tablespoons cream cheese
– 1 clove garlic, minced
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– A pinch of your favorite spices (I used a blend of Italian seasoning)
– A drizzle of olive oil

1. Start by toasting your bread slices until they are golden brown and crispy.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and minced garlic. Season it with a pinch of salt and pepper, and add in your favorite spices, stirring until well combined.
3. Spread the garlicky cream cheese mixture evenly onto your toasted bread slices.
4. Slice the avocado and tomato, and then layer them on top of the cream cheese mixture.
5. Finally, drizzle a little olive oil over your open-faced sandwich and sprinkle with some additional salt and pepper, if desired.

Voila! You now have a delightful and satisfying lunch that’s not only delicious but also incredibly easy to make. The combination of creamy avocado, juicy tomato, and garlicky cream cheese is just divine. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did, and may it bring a touch of warmth and happiness to your kitchen this spring season.

Until next time, happy cooking!

With love,
