Egg and Tomato Sandwich

Thank you everyone for your get well wishes. I am getting much better but the coughing still lingers around and refuse to go away. Like my mom said it might stick around for 100 days but I hope not. I have not cook anything elaborate except making sandwiches and rice porridge for the past 2 weeks so this is something that I made for our dinner one evening.

I hardly buy any white bread but I bought a loaf just to make Argentinean Bread Pudding and there were some leftovers. When I see white bread I always think of egg or sardine sandwiches that I had when I was young. It has been a long while since I had that until when we went back to Argentina. My SIL ordered some egg and ham sandwiches from the sandwich place nearby and there were delicious. There were some very unique combinations of sandwiches that we’ve tried there and I am going to try to re-creates them myself one day. So let’s start with something pretty common that most of you knew how to make them but this is the version that we like


6 pieces bread – can be white or whole wheat
3 hard boiled eggs – roughly mashed
2 tbsp relish
1 tomato – cut into small cubes
3 tbsp low fat mayo
Salt and pepper to taste
Some butter for spreading

1. Combined the hard boiled eggs, relish, tomato, mayo, salt and pepper. Mix well.
2. Spread some butter on all the bread and top it with some of the eggs mixture. Spread it out evenly. Stack 3 slices of bread on top of each other.
3. Trim off the brown edges and cut into half. Serve.

Gert, Your sandwich looks delicious and health. Wish you're getting off the cough. Try warm tea with lemon and honey.

I can never resist egg sandwiches and I just love them. I haven't tried making with tomatoes before, and it looks very nice.

Hi Gert!

Great to hear that you are getting better. Try taking a tablespoon of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar every morning and night with water everyday for your cough.

Those egg sandwiches look yummy. I can take 5 to 6 pieces at one go ha!ha!ha!

Take care and have a nice day.

Shereen, lucky for me Carlos is not so picky about his food like you two boys. I know one hate eggs and one hate tomatoes :)

Lyly, thank you so much for the tip. I am getting so much better except the cough still lingers around.

Follow Foodies, thanks.

Phong Hong, ha ha me either.

Elin, Carlos is the same. He will pick bread to rice anytime. Yea the cough is staying for a while :(

Yen, I am much better but still having a bit of cough.

These egg and tomato sandwiches were a staple on our picnics at the beach. Mom would make enough for six. We would sit on the beach in our sweaters, shivering in the wind, the sand adding a certain crunch to the sandwiches. I am talking about a beach on the NE coast of England back in the early 50's. Great memories, I am about to make me one.
