Aint’t nothing better sometimes to treat yourself with a beautiful and delicious egg breakfast sandwich.
There is something homey in the smell and taste of fried eggs. As much as I love egg salad sandwich, but I always lean my choice toward fried egg sandwich. Because after the first bite I feel comfort and happiness. Just like when you were a kid and mom fried an egg for you the way you like it, put in on toasted bread and you immediately dig in.
I went a step further and fancied it up with the Dijon mustard and roasted red peppers. From simple egg sandwich, it went to café style sandwich.
The sandwich is made with only five ingredients, but those ingredients are complimenting each other. The slightly crusty on the outside and soft on the inside bun. Your favorite melted cheese with marinated roasted peppers. The runny egg yolks soaked into the top of the bread. All of this is a pure breakfast pleasure.
And it only takes about 15 minutes to make. Don’t have 15 min during busy mornings, fine, make it as a special weekend breakfast or even better as a brunch sandwich. I also made it many times for lunch and enjoyed it as well.
Most of the time you have all ingredients for this sandwich except for one – roasted peppers. But maybe roasted peppers is something you can’t live without, and you always have it in your fridge?! Then you can stop reading and make this breakfast egg sandwich recipe. But if you don’t have it, I encourage you to make homemade roasted bell pepper. Yesterday I created the post about How to make oven roasted peppers and marinate them. Make it once, and you will have plenty of healthy breakfast sandwiches to make. It is also OK to use store-bought roasted peppers. They will be slightly soggy, so make sure to drain it well.
Now you know how to make egg sandwich and how easy and healthy it is. As always the best food is the simplest food. This healthy egg sandwich will make your day a little more comforting and happier.
Happy Cooking 😉
