Egg-Bacon Toasties

Ingredients for two sandwiches:

  • 4 slices of bread, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
  • 2 fried eggs (fresh, free range eggs are best)
  • 2 bacon slices, crispy, freshly cooked
  • 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup

Toast the bread and spread a very thin layer of mayonnaise on each slice. Put each fried egg on a slice of toast, cover it with a slice of crispy bacon, then sprinkle it with some ketchup and cover with the second slice of toast. These toasties are best when egg yolks are runny, so make sure not to overcook them. The bacon needs to be freshly cooked and crispy. It’s best to put it on a paper towel just after cooking, so the oil gets drained.

Egg Sandwich

Egg sandwich

Egg sandwich

This is a simple sandwich recipe which uses only boiled eggs and a few vegetables. It can be a good idea for using the Easter dinner leftovers for the next day’s breakfast.


  • 2 eggs, boiled medium to hard
  • 4-6 cucumber slices
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • tuna spread
  • butter (if you prefer, you can replace it with processed cheese)
  • 2 slices of bread

Heat water in a pot until you bring it to boil, then add the eggs. Boil them for 4 minutes, then cool them in cold water. Slice them carefully with a thin bladed knife (serrated knives are not good because they tend to rip the yolk up). If you have a cheese slicer use that instead of the knife. It works beautifully.

Butter the bread slices. Put a lettuce leaf on each slice, then arrange the egg slices on top of it. Add the cucumber slices and tuna spread.
