The Quintessential Egg Sandwich

A friend gave me the idea for this thread, and I read in another thread where LPBeier had a fried egg sandwich with mayo, cheese and sausage patties on the side. That made my mouth water!

The below picture was a poached egg sandwich I made last Sunday morning. I toasted an onion bagel, spread a little butter on it, added some bell pepper strips, a little Monterey Jack cheese, sprinkling of seasonings (garlic powder, salt-n-pepper), the poached egg and then green onion. It was delish!!


Here is another variation I made some time ago, but this was on buttered wheat toast. It was topped with roasted peppers, sliced zucchini and mushrooms, the poached egg, parmesan cheese and parsley (wish I could have had fresh, but opted for the dried).


Let's get creative. What are some ways you'd dress up an egg sandwich. And, PLEASE include pictures, if you could. I would love to see the side dishes, too, if you add them.

That looks delish Miss VB....Sha-Zams!

My Egg Sandwich is more of a traditional Sandwich..and I have two versions

Summer Version....1 fried (in butter) -- Wheat bread with Mayo, slices of Home Grown d'mators Salt & Pepper

Winter Version...Same as above but with Ketchup instead of tomato.

I'm not really a fan of Ketchup, but do enjoy it on a fried egg sammich.

Louisiana Hot Sauce is an option at times......

Those look amazing (how do you get such good pictures?).

My favorite egg sandwich is just hard fried egg (no runny yokes), toasted white bread, mayo and american cheese. I know, totally boring.

Sometimes I make my version of an Egg McMuffin...

1 patty of sausage spread out with a fork as it cooks to make it larger....
1 egg ---Fried or scrambled...
1 Buttered & Toasted English Muffin
Sometimes some Pepper Jack Cheese...Sometimes Blackberry jelly.. Sometimes plain...
Always with a cup of hot Coffee.......

My favourite egg sandwich is egg mayonaise with crisp bacon, chopped onion and lots of ground black pepper.

Believe me, I have practiced! I get Cooking Light magazine and other publications, and I watch how others do it. Do you want to see one of my earlier "egg" photographs, from about 3 years ago? It's not of a sandwich.. but here it goes.




I didn't mean to hijack my own thread. I used to just snap the picture and not really try to do different things with light, etc.

Well, it is your thread. Sounds like I need to practice practice practice, and get plates that aren't white because the stark white plates I have really don't make food look that great.

Thanks for the tips and allowing the minor hijack.

Back to our regularly scheduled posting about egg sandwiches. :)

I made him one this week on great rye bread from the Mennonite store. Mayo, lettuce, tomato, Virginia ham, fried egg, American Cheese, bit of mustard. He thinks I'm a great wife.

I have the same problem with my white plates when I take pictures under the bright, ceiling kitchen light.... makes everything look "washed out" and takes away some of the color. I have to read up on "why" that is.

Wow, that sounds good! **drool**

I like to tomato on them, as well. A couple strips of bacon makes it good too!
