Egg Sandwich

September 11, 2011

There’s so many ways to make an egg sandwich.  And who says it has to be exclusive to breakfast?  It seems to be that way in restaurants, but we have much more flexibility in our own homes.

I wish I could say there’s something really special about this particular egg sandwich recipe…it’s easy, good for you, filling, & customize-able to your own taste & available ingredients.  This is the 3rd one I’ve had in the past week, so clearly I think it tastes good, too.

Speaking of customizing, you can use any sort of bread (e.g. english muffins, whole grain, bagel, tortillas), any type of cheese (e.g. Cheddar, Pepperjack, Provolone, either sliced or shredded), any seasonings, (e.g. standard salt & pepper, crushed red pepper – a personal favorite, dill, Italian seasoning, garlic), vegetables (e.g. tomato, spinach, onions) & condiments (e.g. salsa, jelly, ketchup or nothing).  For me, I often make an open-faced egg sandwich…toast some bread or english muffin, layer with cheese, top with scrambled eggs & salsa.  For the “sandwich” version, you still toast the bread & cheese but then you basically make an omelet.  This would be really tasty panini-style (as I have expressed my love for this equipment in a previous post).

So, experiment with your favorite ingredients & consider an egg sandwich for your next lunch or dinner meal.


2 slices of bread or 1 bagel
1 – 2 slices of cheese
1 egg
1 egg white
1 tbsp skim milk
salt, pepper, crushed red pepper & dill, to taste


  • Layer cheese on bread.  In a toaster oven, toast until light brown.
  • Grease small frying pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Heat pan to medium-low.  Gently whisk eggs, milk & seasoning in a small bowl & pour into skillet.  When the bottom of the eggs is set, carefully fold one half of the egg mixture over the other half. Cook until the egg is mostly set & the bottom is golden; turn and cook the other side until golden. Remove from the heat.
  • Layer eggs on bread & enjoy!
