Scrambled Egg Sandwich

By Swasthi on August 19, 2022, Comments, Jump to Recipe

This scrambled egg sandwich is ridiculously easy to make, and just under 10 minutes. One of the best ideas for a quick weekday breakfast, evening snack or a dinner. It can be made to a 2 layer sandwich for dinner. The boiled egg sandwich recipe and the chutney egg sandwich which i shared earlier is slightly on the heavier side and also takes some time to boil the eggs and then make the sandwich. So sharing this easy recipe.

To add more nutrition and give an extra filling to the sandwich, i use grated carrots, onions and coriander leaves. You can use any of your favorite veggies or leafy greens like lettuce, grated beets, cabbage, mint or celery.

To make scrambled egg sandwich for toddlers and kids, exclude the chilies, onions and chilli powder. Serve it right away. Cooked eggs should be consumed right away for health benefits and taste. They should not be consumed after 2 hours of preparing unless refrigerated. For more details here is a good read on eggs.
