1. Cheesy egg sandwich
The real secret to a tasty egg sandwich is in the seasoning and that what takes the bland to the magnificent. This recipe puts a cheesy twist on the standard egg mayonnaise sandwich and also adds a whole lot of flavour through its seasoning. You don’t need instructions for this one. Just mix up the ingredients in a bowl, spread it thickly on a slice of bread and then top with some sliced tomato and make it a sandwich.
3 chopped hard boiled eggs
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded cheese
2 teaspoons sliced green onion
1/4 c. finely chopped celery
1/6 c. mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise
2. Spicy egg salad sandwich
How about spicing up your egg mayonnaise sandwich with some curry powder and mustard? All you need to do to turn bland eggs into curried eggs is to make your egg mayonnaise mixture as usual with boiled eggs, and then stir in a pinch of curry powder, a pinch of mustard powder, and a drop or two of vinegar. Layer your sandwich with some salad leaves and sliced tomatoes, and you have your Spicy egg salad sandwich.
3. Fried egg and avocado sandwich
This is not one to eat on your way to an important meeting because we guarantee that you will get egg down your top. Just add one lightly fried egg, with the yolk still nice and runny, to some tasty sliced avocado for a delicious, quick and easy breakfast. Try sprinkling some mixed herbs and some salt over the egg when you are cooking it for some extra flavour. Spread it on a slice of bread, and there you go, enjoy!
4. Eggs, celery, mustard and avocado sandwich
This one makes a wonderful egg sandwich filler and all you need to do to make it perfect is to top it all off with some fresh, crispy salad. Just mix the ingredients gently together and spread it on your bread slices. The quantities listed below are enough to make for generous sandwiches.
6 Boiled, chopped eggs
1/4 cup mashed avocado
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

400g fresh spinach leaves
2 tablespoons low-fat creme fraiche
