A delicious Latin breakfast sandwich

Cachito con huevo, LottaFrutta

Cachito con huevo, LottaFrutta

I live near LottaFrutta, a popular Latin fruit and sandwich shop in Old Fourth Ward. Recently, they adjusted their opening hours from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., which has made my morning commutes to my day job a little less fulfilling. But hey, I guess the folks over there have been working pretty hard since they opened some years ago so I won’t complain.

I like to pop in every now and then and get a guanabana smoothie (soursop, fruit from a tropical evergreen tree) or a cachito con huevo, one of my favorite breakfast items here in Atlanta.

The cachito con huevo is a small sandwich made with a sweetened palm-sized medianoche bread roll (”midnight”, named after a late night Cuban sandwich), filled with cooked ham and cumin seasoned scrambled egg, and then flattened in a grooved press.  It won’t satisfy the biggest of appetites, but it’s a great snack when you’re on the run, or want a lighter alternative to a full breakfast.
