Bread omelette sandwich recipe – Quick and easy breakfast sandwich recipe made with bread and eggs. Bread omelet sandwich is one of the street foods of India and is made with tons of variations. Some places even customize the bread omelet to suit the customer’s tastes as per the order.
As with all egg or cheese recipes, this sandwich too has to be consumed within 2 hours of preparing it if not refrigerated. So it is not safe to pack this in the tiffin or lunch box.
Tips for bread omelette
- I have made this sandwich without any chutney, but I have tried this with schezwan sauce, tomato sauce & green chutney on different occasions & felt the sauce really enhances the flavor of the bread omelet. So for variations you can try with this green chutney or schezwan sauce.
- You can also make this sandwich without cheese. I have used mozzarella cheese. Feel free to replace it with cheddar cheese. You can also skip the cheese and just make the bread omelet.
- If you follow the food combining rules, then avoid using tomato sauce.
- For health reasons, favor brown bread or multi grain bread.
- You can also sprinkle some chaat masala on the sandwich

How to make the recipe
- Chop onion, chilies, coriander leaves and capsicum. Rinse a bowl and break the egg to it. Discard the shell. Beat the egg until frothy. Add the chopped onions, chilies, coriander and capsicum. Add salt and turmeric. Beat the mixture once more.
- If you like you can butter the bread and then with chutney or ketchup. Add oil to a pan and heat it. Pour the beaten eggs and allow to cook until the base firms up.
- While it cooks, you can also shape it to a square with the help of spatula. Flip it and fry until the egg is completely cooked. Flip it back and place your cheese slice on the omelette. Lift up the omelette with a spatula.
- Place a bread slice on the tawa and place the omelette along with cheese. Place another slice of bread and toast until the cheese melts. Cheese will melt very quickly under 2 minutes since the omelette is very hot.
- Halve the bread omelette sandwich and serve hot or warm with a cup of tea.
