Step by step photos on fried egg sandwich
1. Toast the bread while you prepare the veggies. Julienned veggies or thinly sliced veggies go well for this. If using tomatoes, deseed and slice them. Set aside all the veggies. You can also include green chilies for little heat.
2. Add little butter or oil to a pan and heat it.
3. Break the egg directly to the pan. Cook on a medium heat until the base firms. Sprinkle pepper and salt. You can also make multiple fried eggs at one time if the pan is big enough.
4. There are a few different ways of making fried eggs. Some don’t cook the yolk completely and like to eat the yolk runny. We prefer to cook on both the sides until the egg is fully cooked. So i flip it and cook.
5. Add more pepper if you prefer. Some people like to add cheese to the hot fried eggs.
6. Add veggies to a slice of toasted bread.
7. Place the fried egg, add more veggies.
Top with another slice of bread. Enjoy with a cup of black tea.
