Egg Mayo Sandwich
Eggs are surely the heroes of the breakfast table. They are versatile, affordable, and easy protein source that are always available in refrigerator. I love to eat eggs by themselves, but they can get boring. This Egg Mayo Sandwich recipe is one of the example how to spice up the plain eggs.
I believe that eggs, mayo, and white bread are no special ingredients in most kitchens. We can easily get those ingredients anywhere easily. The combination of crushed boiled eggs with mayonnaise creates a very tasty rich and creamy flavor in the sandwich. In addition, this egg mayo sandwich is very simple and incredibly easy to make, especially during breakfast.
Tips on Making Egg Mayo Sandwich
1. Cook your eggs in advance
Do you have no time to boil your eggs in the morning? Just make prep your hard-boiled eggs in advance. Hard boiled eggs, peeled or unpeeled, can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. If you feel bored eating the same egg mayo sandwich everyday, simply expand your breakfast horizons with how you eat your hard boiled eggs.
2. Use Japanese mayonnaise
Considering the taste of mayo is pretty dominant in this recipe, I recommend to use the mayonnaise brand you love the best. In my case, Kewpie mayonnaise is probably the only commercial mayo I ever buy. You probably have seen it at grocery stores with its signature tube bottle with red cap and distinctive baby for a logo. It also has been widely used as condiments in restaurants. It tastes more superior than regular mayo I have ever tasted, in term of the creaminess, sweetness, and tang.
3. Add some greens into your sandwich
Sandwich is a versatile breakfast staple, but making it healthier can be a challenge. I always try to add some greens to incorporate vegetables into my diet. Try adding some veggies like lettuce, onion, avocado, or sometimes fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, and dill.
4. Avoid soggy sandwich
Sandwich is an ideal to-go breakfast and lunch. However, one of the main struggles of any sandwich is keeping it fresh, while not letting the bread get soggy. Try adding a layer of lettuce between bread and filling to prevent the bread from absorbing too much moisture from the filling. Adding a crispy lettuce in between will do the trick.
