Sandwiches For Sickness

The most deliciously ugly sandwich I have ever made

I've neglected to inform you that I am just getting over a horrible 
week long flu/fever. But what does that have to do with this sandwich?

Well it was the first thing all week that 
triggered back my appetite and taste buds 

Anyone whose been sick for awhile knows what a relief it is 
to feel hungry and actually taste the flavours in food again

All to be enjoyed with gorgeous sunny views from the patio 
where our lovely potted plant/vine is growing and flowering

Now lets break down the components of this messy sandwich...

I began with 2 toasted slices of gluten free bread, which on I spread 
 1 tsp yellow mustard on one slice and 1 tsp regular mayo on the other

Then I placed 3 slices marble cheese on top of the mustard-covered piece of toast, to
 which I made 1 large fried egg in a skillet with 1/3 cup liquid egg whites poured in...

The fried egg/egg whites were placed on top of the cheese with a pinch 
of salt and pepper, 3 slices turkey deli meat, red onion, spinach and 
tomato, then topped with the mayo-covered piece of toast. The reason it
got messy was because I proceeded to flip the sandwich for whatever reason 

Question: When you first get over a cold and
 your appetite returns, what foods do you crave?

This looks so ridiculously good! After being sick I'll usually make cheesy scrambled eggs !
