Italian Egg Sandwich

by Matt on January 13, 2011

Have you ever made a recipe, but you had no idea what to call it?


As an equal opportunity omnivore, I am generally open to eating anything, anytime of day.

Yesterday, I had pancakes for lunch and eggs for dinner. Actually, I had oatmeal for breakfast, so I guess I had “breakfast” three times yesterday.

I might be obsessed.


This dish is supremely simple, perfect for a midweek dinner when you are short on time. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen, but you have just never put them together before.

Italian Egg Sandwich


  • Olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 ounce of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 english muffin (or two slices of bread)
  • Homemade or store-bought marinara sauce
  • 1 ounce of mozzarella cheese, shredded


  • In a small nonstick skillet heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-low heat.
  • Crack the eggs into the pan and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Cover and cook until the eggs are firm and the yolk almost set (3-4 minutes)
  • While the eggs are cooking, toast the english muffin (or bread) until golden brown.
  • Brush the bread with olive oil and rub with garlic.
  • Layer the bread with eggs, marinara sauce, and shredded cheese.
