5 Ways to Spice Up Your Egg Sandwich
Egg sandwiches are a staple around our house. I make them on a very regular basis and while we gravitate towards the simple egg and cheese sandwich, there are times when we like to shake things up a bit! Depending on what we have on hand and how much time we have determines how creative I am in the kitchen. How about you? Do you like to create new and exciting things in your menu or are you more like me and cook because we need food to live? Hahaha In all seriousness though, egg sandwiches are great for any type of “cook”. They are simple, delicious, and packed with protein.
To make the simple egg and cheese sandwich, you fry an egg or two, throw some cheese on top, toast some bread and put it all together. Bam! You're done and your kids are out the door in a flash. If you want to jazz things up and perhaps add some healthy options, go for it! We recently purchased a Blackstone Grill and LOVE it! We can whip out a lot of egg sandwiches at one time. However, if I’m just making one sandwich quick, I’ll just toast the toast in the toaster and use a frying pan for the eggs.
You know your family better than anyone. You can tailor each sandwich a little different to everyone’s liking. Or you could lay your ingredients out and have everyone “build their own”. Here are some combinations that go great together. We also like to switch it up between bread, English Muffins, and bagels. Our oldest son and I love our eggs over easy (a little runny!), while my husband and youngest son like a hard yolk. I will sometimes even scramble them for easy serving. Our daughter doesn’t care for eggs (everyone gasp!), so on these days, it’s a simple grilled cheese for her and she loves that!
Egg Sandwich Combinations
Eggs (or egg white), Spinach, Tomato, and Gouda Cheese
Eggs, Breakfast Sausage or Bacon (or both!), American Cheese
Eggs, Canadian Bacon, Green Peppers, Colby Jack Cheese
Eggs, Peanut Butter, Bacon, and a splash of Ketchup
Eggs, Sliced Ham, Pepper Jack Cheese, Spinach, Chipotle Mayo
Your options are almost endless. These combinations are just the tip of the iceberg. You could add in almost any veggie you want and be good to go. I enjoy cooking with eggs because they are so versatile, are super healthy, and because we raise backyard chickens, they’re always available!
I hope your summer is off to a great start!
Until next time,
