About Mayo Sandwich

This is a simplest recipe for mayonnaise sandwich made with minimal ingredients like bread, vegetables, spices and herbs that are mostly pantry staples. These sandwiches are crunchy, creamy, flavor-packed and so delicious!! These can be made without a bread toaster, sandwich maker or an oven.

The basic mayonnaise sandwiches served in a lot of cafes are made without toasting the bread. So if you don’t fancy the crisp toasted bread then you may just make the filling and spread it on the bread slices and serve.

The filling is made by just mixing the fine chopped veggies with mayo and flavouring ingredients.

I have shared a few variations and substitutes for the recipe so you can easily make it for your entire family. This is also a kids’ friendly recipe & it is a family favourite in my home.

These mayonnaise sandwiches are great to serve for a breakfast or snack. If making for a meal then simply make a double decker sandwich.

Prepare the filling

1. Butter the bread slices and toast on a large griddle until golden and crisp. You can also skip toasting. You can also just butter the bread, then fill the sandwich and toast in sandwich maker. For this recipe you will need 4 bread slices.

Pro Tips and substitutes

Mayonnaise is the key ingredient in this recipe. Most store bought mayos are a hit or miss. So choose one carefully. The taste of your sandwich depends on the mayo you choose. If you are a vegetarian then you can choose eggless mayo. If you are a vegan use vegan mayonnaise made with nuts.

However if you do not have any kind of mayo then simply strain your homemade yogurt in a cheese cloth or muslin cloth and use it in the recipe. For more details you may check this recipe of Hung curd. The other substitutes for mayo are cream cheese & Greek yogurt.

You can also check these Cream cheese sandwiches and Yogurt sandwich which are a variation of the recipe shared here.

Bread: In eateries and cafes mayonnaise sandwich is mostly made with white soft bread. Since we don’t eat white bread I have used multi grain bread. Sometimes I also make these with sourdough bread or artisan bread. So use any kind of bread that is available to you.

Veggies: The quickest way to make this sandwich by using chopped onions, grated carrots, deseeded chopped firm tomatoes and any fresh herbs like coriander leaves etc. Preparing these will take just 5 to 7 minutes.

Other veggies like bell peppers, sweet corn, beetroot, lettuce, pumpkin, potatoes, arugula (rockets) & cabbage also go well in a mayo sandwich. But they do take some time for preparing like sweet corn, beetroot & potatoes need to be boiled first.

If using broccoli & pumpkin then grill them and use. So choose the veggies of your choice.

I went the simplest way by using onions, lettuce & red bell peppers since I had only these at home.

Spices & herbs: I use ground black pepper, red chilli flakes and ground mustard (powder). You can use any sauce like mustard sauce, chilli sauce or schezwan sauce for heat.

Toasted vs untoasted bread

This is a personal choice. But these can be made either ways & both taste good. Toasted mayo sandwiches won’t turn soggy quickly. If you are using store bought bread, then with the current situation it is good to toast them.

We prefer the toasted bread to make any sandwich, so I have toasted in a pan. However you can also toast these in a sandwich maker or toast the bread in oven or air fryer.

How to make this in 10 mins.

Firstly toast the buttered bread slices on a pan until golden. While they toast, chop the veggies and make the filling. Once the bread is done, cool them down for 2 to 3 mins and spread the filling. Making 2 servings of these mayo sandwiches just takes 10 mins.


Making mayonnaise sandwich with boiled egg and chicken is also common. If you eat eggs & chicken then you can check this Mayo egg sandwich and Mayo chicken sandwich.

  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes (adjust to taste)
