Egg & Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich


Breakfast & Brunch



It’s important to have a healthy breakfast to start your day off properly. If you’re on the hunt for a hearty, lactose free breakfast recipe, we suggest trying our egg sandwich recipe. This sandwich features egg, cheddar cheese, fresh tomato, and plenty of refreshing spinach. We prefer to use multigrain or whole wheat bread for this recipe, so you’ll know that you’re making a breakfast dish that is truly good for you. After trying it, please share the recipe with your friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.

As far as breakfast sandwich recipes go, our recipe is particularly easy. You’ll need one large egg, some green onions or chives (sliced thinly), salt and ground black pepper, and cheddar cheese—we recommend Cabot Sharp Cheddar, Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar, or Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar. Remember to grate the cheese too! You’ll also need some spinach, tomato, and bread. Once again, we recommend using multigrain or whole wheat bread—or even an English muffin—but you can go with whatever is your favorite. You’ll make the sandwich by whisking together the egg, onion, salt and pepper in a bowl. Next, cook the egg mixture until you have a sort of pancake-like omelet. Slice up some tomato, grab a few spinach leaves, toss everything between two slices of bread, and you’re good to go! If you’d like, you can also place the whole sandwich into the oven to toast it up properly, before you dig in.

Cheddar certainly hits the spot, doesn’t it? If you’re searching for other dishes that call for cheddar cheese, we suggest trying our muffin heads with Cabot cheddar. Your kids will love this recipe, as it makes sandwiches with cute veggie “faces.” Cabot is a cooperative of over 1,200 farm families. We produce a wide range of award-winning cheeses. We hope you and your family enjoy the egg sandwich recipe. We want to make sure that it’s up to our high standards. After trying the dish, please rate and review it. We’re looking forward to checking out your feedback.
