I changed this up a little. My ingredients are as follows: Fried egg Toasted rye bread Extra sharp white cheddar cheese Bacon (tasty addition) Mayo (no ketchup) I would have liked to add tomato and onion if I had it. Traditional is good too though the way I made them before was just with egg and mayo.Read More
I guess I'm the minority, I didn't like the ketchup on this sandwich.
This is a joke right? People who can't assemble a breakfast sandwich without a recipe should probably be institutionalized.

Egg sandwiches are a staple in this house - in many shapes and forms. I was curious to try this one as it had the addition of mayonnaise. I made two sandwiches and used toasted whole grain bread. I liked the ketchup and mayo, but will probably go back to my old standard. My husband left his plain and of course had to add some bacon!
This is my "feel good" sandwich. Within the past 2 years, my husband's health has declined severely. He is 70 years old. He refused to eat much at regular meal times, but awakened me in the middle of the night ---every night---to fix him something to eat. Since his dementia was increasing and he was not eating properly otherwise, I would jump out of bed and fix him a fried egg sandwich along with a large glass of cold milk. He always ate the entire sandwich and occasionally ate two. That made me more comfortable knowing that he was getting proper nourishment. So, I always kept the ingredients on hand. From the time my husband awoke me to the time the sandwich was cooked was only about 3 minutes. Now I still keep the ingredients on hand; however,my dear husband had to be placed in a senior living center. He has no one at the center to cater to his late night snack demands. However, he is getting help from professionals, and is now eating well during regular meal times. Unfortunately, his dementia is not reversible. This is a great comfort food sandwich to keep in your bag if tricks. I've never met anyone who didn't like them.
I fried my eggs in bacon grease and used cheddar cheese instead of American. My kids wanted their sandwiches with ketchup and mayo so I made theirs according to the recipe. I did not, I just shook some Frank's hot sauce over my eggs before I put the bread together. As always, egg sandwiches are economical, quick and filling.
This is delicious - as is anything involving fried eggs, in my opinion :)
definitely a tasty and quick breakfast snack when you're in a hurry. Or when you're just plain lazy. Salt and Pepper are crucial. I personally skip the mayo and ketchup and go straight for the hot sauce. Call me crazy, but I need some spice to get me going in the morning. ;-)
I knew I was going to like this recipe but I had no idea just how tasty this simple recipe would be! Biting down into this bad boy was a true treat that I'd recommend to just about anyone. I'd stress, as others have, that the ketchup is a must and shouldn't be feared.
YUM, I fried 2 eggs in olive oil, prepared them over easy, and slapped them on toasted white bread with mayo and tomatoes(instead of ketchup). Delicious! Add a variety of veggies! I wanted lettuce and onion, but didn't have any on hand (shopping day is tomorrow) Be creative!
I didn't go into this with high expectations. It's simple and fast. I added some deli ham and it was awesome. Thanks!
I followd another reviewers advice and I am so glad I did. This is what I did: Toast your bread and spread with mayo and ketchup. Then I took an oversized coffee cup and sprayed with pam then cracked an egg into it. Then I poked 3 small holes in the yoak. Then cover the cup losely with wax paper and put it into the microwave for 45 seconds. Then add your salt and pepper and slide it onto your bread and top with cheese. I will never be going to get McDonalds breakfast again!
Surprisingly gross. Not sure how it could taste so bad when it was such a simple, straightforward recipe. I think the ketchup/mayo combo with the egg just doesn't mix well.
I looove these! My dad used to make them for me on the weekends..I make them and take them with me to work in the morning once in a while..I break the yolk in the pan so it doesn't make such a mess...I also use old cheddar and either Ketchup OR mayo...not both.
Pretty good. I prefer mine with freshly sliced cheddar cheese, untoasted whole wheat bread, and no ketchup.
I love frying up some ham or hard salami with this easy breakfast staple!
This is an old standby in my family with a couple of exceptions. Cheddar, no processed cheese, a thin slice of ham, anything but white (paste) bread, and NO CATSUP. What makes it is using Salsa instead of catsup. That is the magical ingredient, whether served on a plate with toast on the side, or as a sandwich. Mmmmm When my duaghters and I talk about their childhood, this breakfast always comes up. Has to have been good. Eggs and salsa were made for each other.
I am always reminded since we have chickens, the value of an egg! My friend is always telling me to fix a fried egg sandwich! This one is fabulous... and I have to say, was quick and easy! I left off the ketchup, only because it wasn't my preference!
Just love egg sandwiches! And, you are right, quick, easy, better than that McD thing. I have made them for years and I wish to suggest one more condiment to add. People think I am nuts, but I grew up with this. Take a small piece of egg sandwich and put "sweet relish" on it with the ketchup. Mom made them that way and I couldn't argue with mom.
I LOVE fried egg sandwiches! I've made them for years. However, I've never had one with ketchup on it. I think I prefer mayo only, but, that is only a personal preference and I wouldn't give this lower stars because of it.
Why is everyone so afraid of adding ketchup?! Ketchup is key to this delicious sandwich. (Usually though, I do not add cheese, cuts the fat). Not just for breakfast, this sandwich is great any time of the day.
There is nothing better than an egg sandwich on plain white toast! My favourite variations are to use HP Sauce instead of ketchup or use Marmite with stout Irish cheese on Irish bread.
This is my kids's go to morning sammy. I have been making these for years and years! mayo and ketchup is all you need. I love adding different cheeses, jalapeno jack, Swiss, sharp cheddar. fast and tasty for those hurried mornings:)
I can't believe anyone actually needed a recipe for this. I've been making and eating fried egg sandwiches since I was a kid, and I'm old now. If the bread is toasted, I've even made them and taken them to work for lunch-time. But I really don't like ketchup on eggs of any style. Possibly BBQ sauce.
Best egg sandwich ever. I have been making these for many years now. A classic. I omit ketchup (yuck) but otherwise...PERFECT!!!
My niece wanted me to teach her how to make this. It is actually very good.
I love this recipe so much. I have it whenever I'm craving eggs. If I could I would rate it 9,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,909
Really good! I love fried eggs and love sandwiches so this was perfect! Thanks!
Ok, I'll add my 2cents...I have been making fried egg sandwiches for ever and have taught my husband and kids to make their own. I know ketchup is good on eggs...but I don't use it on my egg sandwiches. I use a little mustard and Miracle Whip instead of Mayo. It adds a nice tang. Oh yes, I had to give up the white bread long time ago but use any other healthy bread with grains..That was hubby's choice, just as good tho.
I have actually had this before, but, I've never tried it with ketchup before. You're absolutely right though, this sandwich is a great comfort food!!
Best way to start the day! If your not a ketchup and egg fan, try a Thousand Island dressing! So tasty.
This actually tastes really good with the ketchup and mayo!
For a healthier version lower in cholesterol I use egg substitue. Both my husband and I have been eating these since we we're kids. Our mothers would pack these in our luched in grade school.
We love Fried Egg Sandwiches...I slow fry the eggs and after turning lay a slice of cheddar/colby-jack cheese over the egg and let it melt slowly. We use a whole grain oat bread and season with Mrs. Dash along with 3 shaved slices of roast-beef...mmmmm-good!
I can eat breakfast food for any meal of the day. This was so good and way better than using jelly or jam. Hubby always puts ketchup or hot sauce on his eggs so I thought why not try this one. Big hit at our house!
Love an egg sandwich - and this one fit the breakfast cravings. I was out of ketchup so I added a fresh tomato instead. Thanks Erica for a quick breakfast.
We love these sandwiches! I'm very familiar with fried egg sandwiches, had them all my life. I was curious about this recipe because of the addition of mayo, I always just had them with ketchup. I was very surprised of the flavor, it's delicious. Very subtle, but adds a nice touch to a classic. A bit messy because we prefer the eggs runny, but it doesn't bother us. Thanks for sharing the new idea! :)
I have been eating eggs sammys for years, but I also add lettuce and tomatoes.
ya gotta have 2 eggs per sandwich and add bacon or ham! The ketchup goes without saying! So only just 3 stars
Try this with strawberry jelly and American cheese instead of ketchup and mayo! Yummy =)
Mmmm! I've had plenty of fried egg/cheese sandwiches with ketchup...but this was the first time I added mayo...it was sooo good! I used reduced fat mayo and fat free processed cheese and it was still fantastic.
I have been making these since I was in elementary school (without the ketchup though). I LOVE them and I've gotten every one of my room mates and family members addicted to them. Try making them on bagels! Thanks for posting this Erica.
I grew up eating fried egg sandwiches with ketchup. My husband always had them with mayo. Neither of us ever had them with cheese before. So I used both the ketchup and mayo with the cheese and I've got to say, "Why didn't I think of that before!"
We just didn't care for the ketchup addition.
Pretty decent, but next time I am going to use picante instead and toast the bread lightly, then finish it by grilling the sandwich. This would be great with an omelet inside. A lot of possibilites to keep this from getting old.
I used to make Fried Egg Sandwiches in college because they were cheap and delicious. I always used Miracle Whip rather than mayo, and no ketchup. Miracle Whip just adds something special to the taste!
Thank you Erica for creating a breakfast for me that does not consist solely of coffee. Actually eating for breakfast has been added back into my life. Delicious!!
Classic breakfast sandwich right here. I grew up eating this as a treat (I come from a larger family so we only had 'egg' breakfasts once in awhile) and now offer it every so often to my son when a hot breakfast is just what he needs. Can't go wrong with this one!
Just made this exactly as stated and it was good. I was kinda freaked out about the mayo/ketchup mix but it turned out perfect!
So very tasty, especially for this pregnant gal! Thank you!
One of the best breakfast ever. I don't use the ketchup I use mustard instead and use whatever cheese I have shredded or sliced.
I was raised on egg sandwiches. I prefer to scramble my eggs first and then cook them--sort of like an omelet. I'm not a fan of egg whites. I add tomatoes on my sandwich.
It tasted great!! I just didnt add the ketchup or i wouldnt be able to taste the sandwhich itself.
Awesome fast and easy breakfast sandwich. I have made these for years for my family of 3 boys. Spray glass small round ramkin with Pam, break egg up in the dish, cook 45 seconds, turn egg over, put on a slice of Canadian bacon, a slice of cheese, microwave for 30 more seconds. Put on toasted English muffins or bagels. Couldn't be easier. I usually use the same dish to make several sandwiches as they are so fast and easy to make and then you only have to clean one dish. You can add minced onion, peppers, etc., to change it. We have made 100's of these and now my boys and grandchildren are making their own. Like I said couldn't be easier. No excuse for not grabbing a quick breakfast. I have also made these healthier with whole wheat muffins or bagels and use egg substitute or egg whites with no cheese or low fast cheese.
Not a ketchup fan, especially on eggs...will probably sub mustard or just use the mayo alone.
Idea? and tried this one as a BLT egg sandwich real good!! You know it's a good sandwich when you start taking smaller bites just to make it last longer. Achieve sandwich shop quality at home by creating your best version of each wonderful layer. You certainly got my attention and interest on this one and test it! For getting me Inspired to play with my food!! Happy Cooking to y'all!. I can do my happy food dance Now! THANK YOU! GRPA
I love fried egg sandwiches. Don't do the cheese. I'm probably weird but I like my fried egg sammy's with lightly toasted bread, light mayo and Worcestershire sauce. Oh so tasty.
Delicious. I knew this would be good when I saw it had mayonnaise and ketchup on it. The same ingredients that make a mean salad dressing. With my sandwich I used cheddar cheese, grilled onions, jalapenos, and then grilled the bread on both sides for a minute. Its going to be necessary to try it with bacon next time.
Editing this because I just made it again. This time I used more ketchup and mayo and added a slice of tomato. It was just what it needed!
very different but good. usually there very bland wanna use real tomatos though next time.
Also added a couple pieces of thinly sliced ham to this tasty sandwich
it's so simple, you rarely think of making a sandwich with a fried egg, but it's soooo good. I used mustard and mayo, and maybe fresh tomato if I had any left.
I had no idea this was a southern thing or a northern thing. All I know is I was raised in Nebraska and I thought my dad, my brothers and I were the only ones that liked fried egg sandwiches. Me? I like mine with salt and pepper, crisp bacon, mayo and dill pickles. The dill pickles seem to put others on a high ick factor, but I like it. My big ick factor is soft eggs mashed into pancakes. LOL
Easy and delicious.
I thought when you said condiments you’d actually think outside the square, and maybe look outside your own country. The world does not end at the North American border you know. Instead, no you’ve just used standard American hotdog condiments. I’d probably choose homemade tomato relish or Okonomi sauce, and Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise here. And never white bread, perhaps oat or rye or even pumpernickel. And American cheese, that processed plastic rubbish, that doesn’t belong anywhere near my beautiful runny free range egg thank you very much. It’s not even stepping into my house. This sandwich needs some quality Swiss cheese like emmentaler or gruyere, or at the very least something real like Camembert. Lastly, if you need a recipe to make this, you probably need to learn to boil water first, good luck frying that egg.
Simple and delicious! and it's made with common ingredients... it's easy to make and their is so many ways to alter the sandwich.
This was a great easy breakfast sandwich. I changed it slightly: used two eggs per sandwich rather than one. I wanted to add bacon, but didn't have any on hand so I added some real bacon pieces (bits) to the eggs while they cooked. I used sliced block cheddar instead of processed cheese, and served as an open faced sandwich. I added mayo to the bread, and my boyfriend chose to try with the ketchup. Not the most elegant looking breakfast, but very tasty and quite easy.
i grew up eating these!! its nothing fancy at all, but its exactly how my mom made them, so its very nostalgic for me. sometimes my mom would also add a thin slice of spam into it aswell, being from MN and all. Lol
My Mom used to make these for me when I was growing up and I still make these today. I like mine without the ketcup.
I used hamburgar buns. Left out the ketchup, added some baccon, and used real aged cheddar instead of the icky processed stuff :)
Have made this for years and made one for myself again this morning. Sometimes I add lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, ham, etc. Today, in order to make it healthier, I made an open face sandwich and omitted the second slice of bread and fried my egg in Pam instead of butter. I have never used the ketchup. I can see maybe adding a touch of salsa but ketchup? hmmm. These are great to make and hand to my teenagers in a paper towel so that they can have a healthy breakfast, of sorts, on their way to school in the morning. Thanks for the post here!
I like the idea, but i would rather use mustard and butter as the condiments.
My boyfriend and his roommates live off this sandwich. It's good stuff.
I left out the ketchup as I don't like it on eggs, but other than that this was fantastic.
this recipie is way to easy and great. I love the style from delis and I decided to try it myself. It is just so easy! brown a piece of taylor ham with your egg and cheese and you have a meal for any time of day. healthy eating to you....
Ketchup gross. Best egg sandwich make a BLT add an egg...simply the best
This is how I was taught to make em growing up. Perfect.
This goes back to my childhood - it's an easy and yummy meal - I don't use ketchup and like a little Miracle Whip instead of mayo.
Pretty good and easy too! Left off the ketchup and mayo.
So easy! I tried out the microwave way and cooked an egg for about a minute. Remember to put something over the egg or else you will be cleaning your microwave like me! I like to add a little bit of garlic to the egg and add low fat mayo to the bun. I love how fast it is!
Brought me back to my childhood! My father would make this for me (although I thought it was unusual with the mayo and ketchup, I loved it) and I'm glad to see it here!
I season my eggs with S&P during cooking, use ff cheese, wheat toast and lite mayo and otherwise followed the recipe as written. It was tasty, but the combo of mayo/ketchup didn't quite do it for me so I will keep looking - but if you know you like those two together this is a great breakfast sandwich! (I was wondering if it would remind me of the hamburgers we used to eat in Senegal, West Africa - they had fried eggs on them and the usual burger condiments too). :)
Excellent! Guaranteed to fill you up. Def not a fan of the ketchup. Monterey and mayo for me.
The only way to make a fried egg sandwich! Period! This is my favorite recipe by far! It's comforting and delicious! I love this recipe without changing a thing! Thanks for sharing it!!!
Simple, but filling!
I used hot sauce instead of ketchup. And krafts new deli sliced bacon cheddar pieces. But. YUM. :)
I think the same that I thought about the Tomato sandwich recipe...if you need either of those recipes, you're in real trouble.
(I gave 1star only because they wouldn't accept my comment w/o a star rating. And they don't offer a negative star choice.)
Used tomato,onion and American cheese with mayo, no ketchup. It was great.
Awesome! I only added a thick slice of deli fat free ham. Company loved it! Thank you for posting!!
My husband loves it when I try new and different recipes.
For a true Southern or Texas fried egg sandwich, skip the catsup and mayo and add mustard. Yum!
omitted mayo but put a bit of butter on the toast/bread
I make a version of this using buttered toast, bacon ( 4 strips ) a jumbo egg ( fried/scrambled ) a slice of onion, salt & pepper with ketchup on it. My mother made them for us when we were kids and called them a Western Sandwich. I will have to try one with the addition of DUKE’S Mayo.
A slice of tomato and lettuce is nice…. But NO ketchup! White bread… okay… but lots of other better choices, including nice potato bun.
My favorite ... add a little green Relish
Love a fried egg sandwich! Of course you put ketchup on it. However, I usually don't add the cheese. Just the toast, mayo, fried egg and ketchup, a perfect breakfast. And, of course, a cup of coffee.
I've always loved this sandwich ever since I was in college sixty years ago, it was "cheap eats" for breakfast or dinner but never with catsup! It's still never with catsup....
