I love un-recipes for a quick and tasty lunch. Un-recipe’s also fall into the comfort food category for me, which is a double bonus. The last short while, whilst sorting out our home and garden, un-recipe’s of sorts has been on the cards for lunch – either that or leftovers from the previous evenings dinns. I love eggs and tomatoes together in a sarmie or on a slice of hot buttered toast, especially when the egg yolk is still lovely and runny – there is something magical that happens with an egg and tomato – not sure what but it’s yummy. Please let me know how you enjoy this moreish sarmie if you give it a try.
Un-Recipe Egg and Tomato Sandwich
2 slices fresh white bread – brown just isn’t the same for this
Salt and pepper to taste
- Butter the bread and top the one slice with the sliced tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste.
- Add your fried egg and top with the second slice of bread.
- Cut and enjoy.
I’ve never been able to eat egg on bread, since I was a child. Strange hey?
Hmm, that is strange! Fear not, I am sure I make up for what you don’t have. Have a happy day. 🙂
A runny beautiful egg yoke is heavenly.
My hubs is British. He loves this sort of sandwich.
& Who wouldn’t?
Mmmmmmmmmmm. I’m gettin’ hungry.
Yay, so nice when other people also enjoy the simple things like me. 😀 Have a happy day. 🙂
I usually do the same thing the only difference is that after frying the egg, I mash them with fork and spread it to my bread.
I have never thought about mashing the egg before – I have however scrambled eggs to have on a sandwich. Have a happy day. 🙂
egg on toast, with cheese and chutney for me 🙂
Hmm, cheese and chutney – yummy! Have a happy day. 🙂
..and a splodge of HP sauce….yummmmm!
Oh yes, good old HP Sauce, I see there is a fruit flavoured one now too. Have a happy day. 🙂
I love this idea of the un-recipe comfort meal. I like working tomatoes into almost everything too – when I was little, my mom and I used to eat rice and tomato as a snack – that is a very cherished un-recipe memory of mine 🙂
Hi Kelly. The un-recipe is a fun way of keeping childhood memories alive. Seems all of our happy food memories were more often than not an un-recipe. Rice and tomatoes sound like a lovely as a un-recipe snack. 🙂 Have a happy day. 🙂
I love the runny yolk and yes, it’ll be perfect with the addition of HP sauce or branson’s pickles. 🙂
Hi Peachie. Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately I don’t know branson’s pickles but the idea sounds fabulous!. Have a happy day. 🙂
A wonderful go to meal for me any day! I love the egg juices hitting the bread and the sweetness of the tomato is perfect with it
There is something magical that happens between eggs and tomatoes. Have a happy day. 🙂
Oh what a simple and flavourful sandwich 🙂 I will try this 🙂
Hi Tes, I am sure your little one will also enjoy this sandwich. Have a happy day. 🙂
I never used to enjoy eating cooked eggs, but I’m finding that I seem to enjoy them more now. I just may have to give this one a try. My grandpa was always a big fan of this sandwich. 🙂 I remember him eating them when I was a kid.
Strange how we all like different things. I would love to hear how you enjoy this if you make it – I hope it gets at least a 3 spoon rating. Have a happy day. 🙂
A fried egg and tomato sammich was my go-to snack after working the late shift at the bar. You’re right, there is something about the play of the runny yolk, the tomato, and the bread that i find so yummy and satisfying.
I never realised that there were so many people of also like the combo. 😀 Sammich sounds cool. Have a happy day. 🙂
One of my favorites!
I honestly didn’t think that there were so many people who enjoyed this combination. Have a happy day. 😀
Now this is a sandwich I’ve never tried. I’ve topped a fried egg over a hamburger so I’m sensing how good this combo could be! I’m all about easy, simple dishes during these summer months…or anytime actually!
A fried egg on top of a hamburger is also great – hope you give this sandwich a try – it is super quick and easy lunch. Have a happy day. 🙂
I am feeling you on the un-recipe thing. Sometimes the best things are simple, but just good flavour combos (like for me its greek yogurt and honey).
Ooh yum, Greek yoghurt and honey with a few nuts thrown in for good measure may also work – I am thinking slithered almonds or even pine nuts or pieces of pecans. Have a happy day. 🙂
Simple and perfect, a great way to showcase really fresh produce!
Thanks so much Celia. 🙂
my gran used to fry bacon bits and then crack an egg over them, flip it and then put it between slices of white bread – heaven we always had them when traveling.
Great woman your Gran – can’t beat a bacon and egg sarmie for “padkos” with a big flask of tea. 😀 Have a happy day. 🙂
I adore runny eggs on toast, can only have tomato with fried eggs, and can’t eat eggs on fresh bread, it’s always got to be toasted. Love the simple recipe, these are the tasty treats we all adore. 🙂
I am thrilled that there are so many of us that enjoy the same simple treats – makes us feel closer across the vast ocean! Thanks again for honouring me with the 7 links challenge – I am looking forward to rummaging through all my old posts. Have a happy day. 🙂 xo
This egg and tomato sandwich is definitely unique and oddly enough.. I want to try it :).
I would love to hear how you enjoy it if you make it. Have a happy day. 🙂
Hello! I’ve been missing your posts, but I’m ctaching up now 🙂
You’ve got me craving my 2 favourite sandwiches – either tomato slices with salt & pepper, or soft fried egg with cheese, both on fresh white bread! Never tried them together though…I’ll have to do so 🙂
Hi Linda, it is lovely to see you back. 😀
Hmm, I have scrambled eggs with cheese before but must try a fried egg – or even a soft boiled egg maybe and let’s face it, it’s hard to beat a tomato, salt and pepper sarmie.
Have a happy day. 🙂
