Make mine an Oprah sandwich.

When you think of Oprah, what words spring to mind? Media mogul, talk show host, actress, producer and philanthropist. She is a one woman power house with all ten fingers in money making pies.

In this month’s O Magazine it seems that Oprah is turning teacher and is giving us a lesson in how to make a first-rate sandwich. The name of this tasty treat is the Love Sandwich. “It became the Love Sandwich because I first started making it just for Stedman. I’ve only made it for a couple of other people, so if you’ve had me make the Love Sandwich for you, you have to be somebody I really care about.”

She’s keeping schtum about the full recipe for the Love Sandwich until you pick yourself up the newest issue of her magazine, but here is the basic idea so you can start creating your own special version a la Oprah.

Grab a panini, melt some hot pepper cheese over smoked turkey and fresh basil in a skillet or a panini press, as Oprah says it “takes the ‘love sandwich’ to a whole new level.”


6 egg whites

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon fresh thyme or oregano or chives

1 scallion

Salt and freshly ground pepper , to taste

1 ounce pepper Jack cheese or 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese


In a bowl, beat the egg whites and the yolk. Add the herbs and scallion, and season with salt and pepper. Spray a non stick omelet pan with cooking spray, heat the pan to medium, and pour in the eggs. Use a wooden spoon to move them around, making sure to scrape the bottom to prevent them from sticking. When they begin to come together, sprinkle on the cheese, and cook until they reach their delicious pinnacle.
