5 Egg Sandwich Recipes To Try At Home: 


1. Scrambled Egg Sandwich

This one's my favourite breakfast recipe of all time. The eggs are mildly seasoned and cooked for only a few second so they're soft and go really well with toast.

One of the most popular and delicious sandwich recipe to make for breakfast.



1 medium onion, diced small

1 Tbsp olive oil or cooking butter

2 eggs

1/2 tsp black pepper

Rock salt to taste

1/2 tsp mustard sauce

1/2 tsp sriracha or any hot sauce

1/2 tsp oregano/fresh basil leaves

2 slices brown bread

1 pod garlic


1. Heat the pan till it's hot. Now, put the butter in till it melts. Add the diced onions and let them fry till they're golden brown and crisp.

2. Add pepper, salt and mix.

3. Break the eggs and let the bottom turn crisp. Now, add the sriracha, mustard and oregano over it.

4. Turn off the gas, scramble the eggs and take them off the heat.

5. Rub some garlic over the bread, spread some butter and heat it on the pan.

6. Put the scrambled eggs over the toast and serve.

2. Egg and Mayo Sandwich

This classic combination never ceases to deliver. I prefer the combination of boiled eggs over scrambled with mayonnaise because they seem to mask the somewhat eggy taste of scrambled eggs. Then there's also the question of hard boiled vs soft boiled eggs: Clubbing soft boiled eggs with mayonnaise can make the whole thing gooey because the centre of the egg is a bit loose and the mayo tends to make it even more runnier. I'd recommend you let the eggs boil a bit longer.

The classic egg and mayo sandwich that is too easy to resist!


2 eggs, boiled

2 slices multigrain bread, make sure it's soft and slice off the edges

Dil leaves, basil, mint, chives - Any kind of fresh herbs you can find

1 tablespoon mayonnaise, store-bought or homemade

Rock Salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon mustard


1. Boil the eggs for 9-10 minutes by dunking them in hot water and lot letting the water boil with the eggs in them.

2. Place them in cool water so it's easy to peel off the shell.

3. Mash it with a spoon and add the mayonnaise and mustard to it.

4. Put it on toast and dress it with all the herbs you've got and serve.

3.  Egg (baked), Ham & Cheese Sandwich

This isn't just another egg sandwich: it's got that nice risen egg, like the kind you find in an egg mcmuffin at McDonalds.


1 Egg
Salt + pepper
Smoked cheese or cheddar cheese
2 Slices ham
Mustard sauce
Basil leaves or any microgreens


1. Grab a tray, the kind you use for cupcakes and grease it.

2. Break the egg into the mould and dust it with salt and pepper.

3. Pre-heat the oven for 15 minutes and then put the tray in.

4. Let it bake for about 5-6 minutes. You'll be able to see when the egg is done.

5. Pull it out and chop it into medium-sized pieces.

6. Add some ham and cheese to the mix and heat it in the microwave for a few minutes so that the cheese melts.

7. Put it on toast and dress it up with microgreens, mustard and some balsamic vinegar (optional).
