“We don’t walk. We overeat because we’ve made it easy to overeat. We have fast-food joints on every corner. By the way, the ‘we’ is all of us. It’s not the government. It’s all of us doing this together.” - Mehmet Oz

Some days there is no time to cook and while the belly is rumbling, one has to raid the fridge and put together something simple and satisfying rather than reach for the phone and order take aways.

This is a fast-food favourite, and provided one has the magic ingredients on hand it can be made as gourmet as one wishes. A green salad fresh from the garden usually accompanies this. And it is really more healthful than a lot of other fast food!

4 English muffins (or 8 slices of multigrain bread)
Olive oil
Sliced smoked leg ham
Sliced tasty cheese
Sliced tomatoes
1 tub of spring onion dip
French mustard
Salt and pepper

Slice muffins in half and spread liberally with olive oil. On one half spread some French mustard and lay ham slices on it. Add the cheese slices and tomato. Season with pepper and salt. On the other half, spread some spring onion dip and close the sandwich. Toast or grill until muffin is golden and cheese has melted.

One can also substitute the muffins with wholemeal bread or with flatbread, in the latter case making wraps around the filling. The wraps can then be put in the oven or griller to cook.
