Crack the eggs into the pan, making sure to keep the yolks intact. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Let the eggs cook for about 2-3 minutes until the whites are set but the yolks are still slightly runny and flip them.

If you prefer your eggs fully cooked, you can cook them longer to your desired doneness. To get them completely done – pop the yolk in the beginning. Once it is done, add the cheese on top to melt.

What kind of bread can you use for a fried egg sandwich?

When it comes to choosing the bread for a fried egg sandwich, you have a variety of options to suit your preferences. Here are some popular choices:

  1. Low Carb Bread: For this version I used Sara Lee Delightful White Bread. It’s light and works great for sandwiches like these.
  2. Classic White or Whole Wheat Bread: Traditional white or whole wheat bread slices are a versatile and widely used option for fried egg sandwiches. They provide a neutral base that allows the flavors of the eggs and other ingredients to shine.
  3. English Muffin: The nooks and crannies of an English muffin make it a delightful choice for a fried egg sandwich. Toasted to perfection, it adds a satisfying texture and works well with the creamy yolk of the fried egg.
  4. Bagel: For a heartier and more substantial sandwich, consider using a toasted bagel. The chewy texture of the bagel complements the fried egg and adds a unique flavor profile.
  5. Croissant: If you’re looking to add a touch of indulgence to your fried egg sandwich, a buttery croissant can be a delectable choice. Its flaky layers create a delightful contrast to the crispy fried egg.
  6. Ciabatta or Panini Bread: For a more rustic and crusty sandwich, opt for ciabatta or panini bread. These bread varieties hold up well to the moisture of the fried egg and provide a satisfying crunch.

Remember, the choice of bread ultimately depends on your personal taste and desired texture. Experiment with different options to find the perfect bread that enhances your fried egg sandwich experience.

What kind of cheese can you use in a fried egg sandwich?

When it comes to choosing cheese for a fried egg sandwich, there are numerous options to consider, each offering its own distinct flavor and texture. While we prefer provolone for this one there are many other choices:

  1. Cheddar: Sharp or mild cheddar cheese is a classic choice for a fried egg sandwich. It melts well and adds a rich and creamy flavor to complement the eggs.
  2. American: American cheese is known for its smooth and creamy texture, making it a popular choice for sandwiches. It melts easily, creating a gooey and indulgent experience when paired with a fried egg.
  3. Swiss: Swiss cheese adds a nutty and slightly sweet flavor to a fried egg sandwich. Its distinctive hole-filled texture melts beautifully and provides a delicate taste that pairs well with eggs.
  4. Pepper Jack: If you prefer some spiciness in your sandwich, go for pepper jack cheese. It features a combination of Monterey Jack cheese and spicy peppers, adding a kick of heat to your fried egg sandwich.
  5. Provolone: Provolone cheese has a mild and slightly smoky flavor that complements the richness of fried eggs. It melts well and adds a touch of Italian flair to your sandwich.
  6. Mozzarella: Mozzarella cheese brings a stretchy and gooey texture to a fried egg sandwich. It has a mild and milky flavor that pairs nicely with eggs, creating a comforting and melty experience.

Remember, cheese choice is a matter of personal preference, and you can mix and match different types based on your taste. Whether you prefer a classic cheddar, a spicy kick from pepper jack, or a gooey American cheese melt, there are endless possibilities to create a delicious and satisfying fried egg sandwich.
