I am having so much fun reading all the memories people are sharing about growing up with tomato sandwiches after my tomato sandwich post on Wednesday, Summer’s Favorite Sandwich. This afternoon, when I was making a fried egg sandwich for lunch, I thought it would be another fun post for people to share their favorite ways to make this old school favorite.
*Note to my southern Duke’s Mayonnaise friends (because I know I’m going to get grief for having Hellmann’s in the photo above)…yes, yes, yes, I know how awesome ya’ll think Duke’s mayo is, that NOTHING compares (mayo wars)…I still prefer my Hellmann’s. Sorry, not sorry. Haha! But please feel free to remind me.
I grew up with fried egg sandwiches, another childhood staple and favorite. Growing up, our fried egg sandwiches were simple – toasted white bread with Hellmann’s or Miracle Whip, an egg or two fried in butter, with salt and pepper. I like my eggs well done (over hard). Simple to make, so good. In the summer, fresh sliced garden tomatoes are a must and if I want some crunch, I’ll add some lettuce too.

My grandparents loved to poach their eggs over easy and have them over buttered toast (using fleishman margarine) with salt and pepper – an open face egg sandwich and a little healthier (Poached Egg on Toast Recipe).
