Egg Sandwich

There's nothing to my latest cheap$kate recipe. You could find it at any work site food truck, and I used to get one quite often. This is early morning simplicity, just a fried egg between 2 slices of bread.

And eggs are cheap. Local markets and even chain groceries carry, or bake on site, all types of bread. Spit a warmed buttery croissant or slice off some fresh baked baguette to elevate the lowly Egg Sandwich.

The varieties of an Egg Sandwich are endless -- is the egg yoke cooked through or left runny, is the bread toasted or not, do you top the sandwich with two slices of bacon,  a slab of melting cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomato? It's up to you, just use what you have on hand. And it's certainly easy and quick enough to do any time of day. That's what I like about an Egg Sandwich. This is my version.

  • 1 or 2 eggs
  • Bread for sandwich - any type
  • Sandwich toppings - lettuce, tomato and mayo.
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Teaspoon of oil or oil spray for frying egg.
Fry an egg. I break the yoke and just let it cook on one side until yoke is half cooked. That way you get some crunchy whites edges and creamy yoke. You could do a light scramble too. Of course cook the egg as you like it.

Use toasted or plain bread to build your Egg Sandwich. And top with your favorite sandwich condiments.

I make egg sandwiches in some form all the time. My husband loves them for breakfast and if he is running late (often ha ha) I can send one out the door with him.

We vary them sometimes adding bacon slices, cheese or whatever.
