Servings 1


  • 2 whole eggs beaten
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 French baguette sliced lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup of liver pâté
  • 1 jalapeño thinly sliced
  • Pickled carrots and daikon
  • 6 sprigs of fresh cilantro
  • 6-10 fresh mint leaves


  • Start by bringing a skillet up to medium heat. Toss in the butter, and let it melt until it is nice and bubbly.
  • During this time, add the eggs to a bowl, and aggressively beat with a fork. Toss in the water and salt, and mix again.
  • Add the beaten eggs to the skillet and immediately stir, and keep stirring until the eggs beging to form. Lower the heat, and continue stirring until they are cooked to your desired doneness.
  • Open your baguette, and spread the pâté on one half of the bread.
  • Top the pâté with the scrambled eggs, then add the slices of jalapeño, fresh herbs, and pickled carrots.
  • Close the sandwich up, open wide, and take a big first bite. This not only could be one of the best sandwiches in the world, but it could be one of the best breakfast sandwiches as well. As I normally sway towards a Bánh mì loaded with roasted pork, the scrambled eggs added a great texture to the sandwich. The crunch of the pickled carrots, along with that awesome smoky flavor from the pâté results into a wonderful sandwich.
  • So if you are looking for something different to try, give this one a shot. You will most likely be putting those pickled carrots and daikon on all of your sandwiches!
