A long time ago, long before there were computers and microwaves, people enjoyed a delicious boiled egg on toast sandwich. Today, this classic breakfast food still enjoys a place in many kitchens. Egg sandwiches have a reputation for being one of the tastiest and easiest breakfast foods around. The reason is they are relatively cheap and easy to prepare, yet very filling and flavorful.

Hard Boiled Eggs

To make hard boiled eggs, simply add butter, salt and cream to a frying pan along with a little mayonnaise and bring to a gentle boil. When it starts to bubble, turn the heat down to low and continue to simmer for about 10 minutes, with the pan lid open. After ten minutes, you can remove the lid and gently swirl the mixture around to loosen the mayonnaise, drain off the excess water and replace the bread with bread crumbs. You may need to scrape away any bits of stringy bits left on the bread.

If using hard boiled egg sandwiches, rather than sliced ham or turkey, place four slices of bread on each plate, one on top of the other. Spread some butter on both sides of the bread slices. Place three of the slices into each individual egg, making sure that they are completely covered with the butter. Next put three of the slices into each piece of bread. Once all the slices are in place, cover the whole sandwich with the remaining egg and spread with more butter.

Spread The Mayonnaise

Fold the two pieces of bread over so that the outside is now on top and spread the mayonnaise all around the sandwich. Cover the entire sandwich with the mayonnaise, and gently roll the whole thing up into a tube shape. Place the wrapped egg roll into plastic zip bags and refrigerate for up to three days.

If you want to make a fried or scrambled egg salad sandwich, you will need softened cream cheese, chopped green onions, chives, and chopped red pepper powder. Combine mayonnaise, cheese, onions, chives, and red pepper powder in a bowl. Stir until the mayonnaise sticks to the ingredients. Fold the ingredients over so that the top is now completely covered with the mixture.

Heat A Frying Pan

Heat a frying pan or skillet, and add enough oil so that the bottom of the bread slice remains slightly moist. Lay down the bread slice in the skillet or the frying pan. When the sandwich begins to cook, turn the sandwich over so that it is completely cooked. If it looks dry, then place another bread slice on top of it instead. Remove the sandwich from the oil and place it on a plate, and wait for it to dry.

Another quick breakfast recipe that you can do in the mornings includes an Omelet. You will need white eggs, onions, and chopped mushrooms. Combine all of your ingredients and allow them to be completely cooked for about five minutes. Then fold the omelet in half and cover it with the filling. Heat your skillet or wok, and cook your omelet until it is done.

Bottom Line

Whether you choose to make a traditional quick breakfast recipe or one that you have created yourself, you will find that this type of food provides a satisfying taste. It’s easy to make, and it tastes great. You will enjoy the variety of foods available as you begin planning a healthy diet.
