You are going to think this idea is absolutely ridiculous or genius. I tend to think it’s genius but I may be biased. ;) Simply, I make an egg mold out of an empty nut can. Here, I’ll show you. I went a little picture happy.

Ingredients I used…

How I Made a Fast Food Style Egg Sandwich

  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • tiny onion
  • 1/4 of a bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp bacon bits
  • 1 whole grain sandwich thin
  • non-stick cooking spray

First of all let me tell you what happened. I had a hankering for an egg sandwich this morning. The little guy asked for “cheesy eggs” which, in our house is code word for pretty much a plain omelet. It’s a long story that starts waaay back when I made Mommy and Me omelets.

Anyway, before breakfast I was cleaning out the pantry, about to recycle this nut jar…

When something hit me! It’s just about the same size as a sandwich thin.

So I took a can opener to the bottom and made a tube.

I then sauteed the onion, pepper and bacon bits and beat them with the egg, egg white, a pinch of salt and pepper.

With a heated a non-stick skillet, I sprayed the tube and skillet with non-stick spray and poured in the egg.

Using a rubber spatula I mixed the egg a few times and cooked for a minute or two until I thought it was set enough to remove the “mold”. With the mold removed I flipped and cooked for another minute.

    Genius. I make one with a custard cup sprayed with nonstick spray and microwave my egg. Add a slice of cheddar and 2 slices of canadian bacon to my sandwich thin, and I’m good to go.

    Should add more veggies to mine! A slice of tomato would be great.

    Genius! I even have a little flower shaped thingie to use with eggs or pancake batter. At the very least, you solved a problem I have. Flipping the eggs and keeping their shape. (Stir the mix! Duh!!) Maybe Mac Muffins for breakfast tomorrow…

    That is pretty freaking genius. I wish I could have bread and I would try it. I am making a portobello mushroom/blue cheese/egg sandwich tomorrow. It is my own experiment to mix up breakfast.

    GENIUS!! I’m one of those crazy people that has to have my sandwich stuffings right to the egde, my husband makes fun of me but I like to have my filling in every bite, duh!! this is perfect for me, I eat Arnold’s sandwich thins all the time and having the egg fit perfectly to the edge is right up my alley!!

  5. Prettylittlereckless

    Yum! I make my own sausage/egg/muffin sanwiches from time to time and use a small glass dish (I think it’s for dipping sauce?). Spray with non-stick stuff, pop in the microwave for 50-55seconds and done! I like the idea of adding in veggies though and using sandwich thins! I have a bunch in my freezer that need to be used and this is a great idea!

    Genius! I use a microwave egg cooker that I found at Walmart that cooks the egg in 1 minute but my egg is a little smaller than the sandwich thin. I love fixing these for my boys for breakfast because they are both quick and healthy.

    I absolutely love it when people get creative and repurpose things. GENIUS.
    PS: Saw someone on Rachel Ray show make a calorie & time saving alternative to a cheese omelet…using egg substitute and laughing cow cheese and microwaving it.

    Not ridiculous at all — PURE GENIUS! I’ve been making these sandwiches for awhile – I love you can add so much variety with fresh veggies. Although, my favorite is 1 TBS of real bacon bits and a couple TBS of shredded cheese. Makes me feel like I’m being “bad” but WW points-wise so friendly!!!

    This summer, I happened to score the tiniest fry pan at TJ Maxx that is the appropriate size as well.

  9. Crystal

    Great idea, and resourceful of you! I wonder if you could make a few of these ahead and keep them in the fridge to reheat for hectic mornings?

  10. Sher

    Love this idea! I love making egg sandwiches, but the egg ALWAYS falls out of the bread in big messy hunks. Now I’m on the hunt for a can that fits my sandwich thin…

  11. Dani

    Roni! I am so envious of your ability to cook and work out all through your 1st trimester – I’m at week 11 and have been sick as a dog! No cooking, and almost NO activity! And just for the record – I choose genius over ridiculous! I mean what’s so ridiculous about wanting to your egg to nestle perfectly onto your bread?! MAkes perfect sense to me! Something only your fellow fit-foodies can understand – LOL!

  12. Kathy

    Sounds good…until you get to the ketchup! LOL!

    By the way, ‘accidentally’ came across your page and now visit all the time! Love the recipes!

  13. jacque

    i have a question when u say u mixed the egg and egg white are these 2 different things???? It really looks will have to try. Always looking for new points receipes. Thanks

  14. roni

    Yes, for the recipe i used 1 egg and 1 egg white. It’s just a preference of mine. You can use 1 egg, egg beaters or 2 full eggs. Whatever you prefer.
