Egg Sandwich

This is a delicious way to have breakfast on the go. You can make this sandwich ahead of time, wrap it in foil, and pop it into a warm oven to hold it until you are ready to eat. If you are having others over for a breakfast party - you can make these ahead, then warm them in the oven and serve - them piping hot when the timing is perfect. I typically put grated cheddar cheese, scallions, and salsa - but you can alter the toppings/ingredients to suit your style and tastes. This is a very versatile recipe - and great to have in your "basics" skill set.

  • non stick frying pan


  • 3 eggs I use large eggs

  • 1 10" flour tortilla
  • 1 oz grated cheddar More if you like cheese
  • 2 tbsp salsa fresca

Scramble the eggs

  • Melt the butter in the skillet over low/medium heat
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and use a whisk to beat thoroughly
  • Poor the eggs into the pan with the melted butter
  • Using a rubber spatula, stir the eggs frequently to ensure they are cooked but not browned.  Scrambled eggs should be yellow. 
  • Place the eggs onto the flour tortilla.
  • Add toppings of your choice.
  • Salt and pepper to taste as well
  • Begin gently and fold the two sides of the tortilla toward the center, then bring the back flap up and over the two sides, and finish by rolling into a package.
  • Wrap the sandwich in foil.
  • Place into a 250-degree oven for 10 minutes to warm the tortilla.


If you are making these delicious sandwiches for a crowd, I suggest you make them one or at a time, wrap them, and hold them in the warming oven until the guests are ready, and you can then all eat together.  The perfect way to enjoy your company - and not be working fiendishly at the oven - while everyone else is having fun.
