  1. In a small bowl, mix together yogurt, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a greased non-stick pan on medium low heat. Crack and pour eggs into the pan. Cook until whites are set, flip and cook for 1 minute for a runny yolk, 3 minutes for a fully cooked yolk. Turn off the heat and let sit while assembling sandwich.
  3. Place 2 slices of bread on 2 plates. Spread an even layer of the yogurt sauce over the toast. Top with a portion of arugula, avocado and egg, and pepitas if using. Top with other slice of bread. Cut the sandwich down the middle and serve.

Chef Tips

If you are on a low fiber diet, use white sourdough bread for your sandwich.

If you are cutting back on grains, make this as an open faced sandwich, or just eat it without the bread, it will still taste great.
