A Fried Egg Sandwich is a simple sandwich. You can jazz it up with cheese or fried onions, but it's tasty alone. And so easy a child can make it.
A Fried Egg Sandwich is a comfort food lunch.
I like my Fried Egg Sandwich simple—just bread, butter and one or two fried eggs with hard-cooked yolks. Don likes his to have lots of mayo, mustard and cheese.
As he explained it to me, he said, "Take two pieces of bread and split them open so you have two sides. On the left side, slather on the mayonnaise and then sprinkle the shredded cheddar on top of the mayo. On the other side (piece of bread) put spicy mustard. Then cook the egg and lay it on top of the cheese. The cheese will melt and get all gooey. Then put the mustard bread on top of the egg."
What You Need
You will need a small skillet and a spatula. Get the best you can afford.
