SMALL SPACE LIVING

my husband and i live in an apartment that is approximately 750 square feet so it’s very important that we make use of every inch of space. our kitchen in particular is really small and i love to cook and bake so we have to be strategic in the layout. when we moved in, we installed open shelving which was crucial since we have almost no storage. we use the shelves both aesthetically and functionally (they require frequent dusting, but in my opinion, they are worth it!)

asked us if we wanted to try out their new smaller,  and we were game! i use my frequently so i keep it out and the new design is much narrower which is awesome if you have limited space, like us. even though we have a small space, we really like to host people. one of the easiest things to make if you’re hosting is to create something simple that you can set out in dishes and let people assemble however they’d like. it allows people to create it the way they like and also doesn’t involve too much time spent assembling and plating everything. for brunch, egg sandwiches do the trick. you can also set out your Nespresso with a variety of capsules and the and people can make the drink of their choice, an espresso shot, americano, latte, etc. the pods come in all sorts of strengths and flavors so it’s fun to experiment.

for the egg sandwiches, i prefer fried eggs but you could also make a big batch of scrambled eggs. we made veggie sandwiches today but you could add bacon, ham, or sausage as well which would be great. the addition of basil and mozzarella on these is really good, don’t skip that part!

egg sandwiches
what you’ll need:

• eggs, either fried or scrambled
• cheese – mozzarella or any other variety
• spicy mayo – mayo Sriracha
• spinach
• sliced tomato
• basil
• avocado
• micro greens or pea sprouts
• salt + pepper

• cook your eggs as desired, once they are cooked leave the pan on and add your spinach while it’s still hot, drop a bit of water (a tablespoon or two) into the hot pan so that it creates steam. mix the spinach around and let it wilt, remove from the heat and set aside. i like to prepare my greens this way because it doesn’t require any oil, dirty another pan or require that you take out your steaming basic.
