Egg sandwiches are kind of a regular thing in our house. They are a convenient little hand-held meal to take on the go.
Egg sandwiches make a quick and easy breakfast on the fly for busy mornings when we’re scrambling out the door. Right now, I’m posting this recipe for my son who is having to fend for himself while he’s doing a summer internship. He is learning quickly that the hours are unpredictable for a busy summer intern and that he never knows when or if he’s going to have time to eat. So, better not head out the door without eating a good breakfast!
They are literally the easiest things to make. Just toast some bread, or not, fry an egg, slap it together and walk out the door. Takes 5 – 10 minutes max.
But if you want a nice sandwich that you’ll enjoy then follow these simple steps:
First, get out all the things you’ll need: a toaster, spatula, frying pan, bread, 1 or 2 eggs, butter, and salt & pepper, and maybe a little ham and cheese, if you have it.
Next, set the frying pan on the burner and turn on the heat to about medium.
Toast the bread while you are waiting for the frying pan to heat up.
You also might want to soften the butter in the microwave for about 17 seconds. That way, it will be easier to butter your toast.
And when the butter has melted and looks like this,
Crack the eggs into the hot, sizzling butter. Like this…
Technically, this pan is too hot. You can tell because the butter is brown. These eggs are being cooked too fast and might be a little tougher than if they had been cooked a little slower on a lower temperature. No worries though, it’s just an egg sandwich and when you are in a hurry, you just have to keep moving! Its going to be really good anyway!
Be sure to break the yolk so you don’t have a runny egg sandwich! That could be messy! This is when you should add a little salt and pepper. Just a shake or two will do.
While the eggs are cooking, check on the toast. When the toast is done, take it out and butter it.
Then check back in on the eggs. When the whites are set, (which means they look white, HaHa) flip them over, one at a time, with your spatula.
They’ll just need a minute more time to cook. Here’s where you could add some ham and cheese.
The last step is to take the eggs out of the pan, one at a time, and set them on a piece of toast.
Then just top it off with the other piece of toast and you’re all set! Now, take your first bite and savor it…and then get on with your busy day! I really hope you enjoy it!
