Cinco de Mayo Egg Sandwich

cinco-top
Since I was a child, I’ve enjoyed a fried egg sandwich with salt, pepper and a bit of mustard on soft, white Wonder-type bread.  It’s even a good meal when I’m not feeling well if I omit the pepper and mustard.

I wanted to make an egg sandwich that was more substantial and put together a good one with a Mexican flair – just in time for Cinco de Mayo.  The cheese is available in my local grocery …

…and I enjoy the soft pretzel buns that my bakery carries.  Fry the egg the way you like it best – I like mine golden brown with the yolk fried hard.

  1. That is one substantial fried egg sandwich! I too love them and especially when I am not feeling well. I’m going to try it next time with the queso blanco. I’ve put lots of cheeses on there (and a few peppers sometimes) but never that. I keep it in the house so I’ll be trying it soon!

  2. Cilantro, onion, and bell pepper egg sandwich, Ole’. Fried eggs sandwich with mustard, salt, and pepper, my favorite sandwich. Think I will make one for lunch.

  3. That does look delicious! I’m going to have to try it. I’ve never made an egg sandwich with veggies, but it’s sure a good idea.

  4. That looks like a delicious sandwich. I just bought eggs yesterday, and Vidalia onions are in the stores now. Yum, if I substitute Miracle Whip for the mustard. LOL
