Mom’s Fried Egg Sandwich

It’s a lazy kind of morning today.  It’s unofficially sweater weather, and I want nothing more than to snuggle up on the couch with our throw blanket and some coffee when I get up in the morning.  Since I’m in comfy cozy mode, let’s go nostalgic with today’s recipe.

My mom would make this sandwich for me all the time when I was little.  As I’ve grown up, there has always been a soft spot in my heart for this simple little guy.  As luck would have it, my sandwiches would never be quite the same as my moms.  Then one morning a few months ago, I got the secret.  I was sick and Mom came over to check one me/play with the boys to give me a break.  She made me this sandwich and I saw what I had been missing.  One of her favorite seasonings.  Score!  Now I can have a Mom sandwich anytime I want.

  • 2 slices white bread
  • Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg

  1. In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat.

  3. While egg is cooking, toast bread in toaster. Once cooked, spread each half with mayonnaise.
  4. When egg is just about done top with a good sprinkle of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt.

    A fried egg sandwich has always been a comfort food for me. I'm going to try the secret ingredient the next time I make one. What a great mom you have….Thank you for sharing at Foodie Friends Friday.
