Mix the eggs and water till well combined. Next, add the rest of the ingredients, and mix till well combined.

Grease a microwave-proof dish (20cm x 12cm and 3.5cm deep) with cooking spray, butter or a wipe of oil.
Pour the batter into the dish and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Remove from the microwave and allow to cool so you can handle the dish.
Flip the "bread” out onto a cooling rack and let cool till you can handle it. Then using a bread knife, carefully cut the slice in half length ways.
Butter the “upside” part of the bread

Heat a non-stick frying pan on the stove.
Brown the "bread" slices and cook slightly for 2 minutes each side roughly, while you prepare your filling.
Remove the slices from the pan and start assembling your fillings.

If you want a quick one-pan wonder with one or two fillings, then add the assembled sarmie back to the pan and grill, flipping a few times, till the cheese has melted.

If you have time, or you’ve packed the sandwich with many ingredients, it would be better to put it under the grill in the oven. This method also dries out the “bread” slightly, making it more similar to "real" bread.
Preheat the grill to 200°C and cook until everything is oozy and melted.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
