How to Make Toasted Sandwich

Ingredients

What do you need to cook the best Toasted Sandwich?

Bread

A lot of us love bread for breakfast, don’t we?

Whether you cook it or not, there are so many ways to prepare bread in the morning. It goes with plenty of food options in the morning, like vegetables, meat, fruits, and sometimes even fish.

You also can use any filling or spread to give it your favorite flavors and for a new sandwich flavor every time. It also comes in vegan, gluten-free, and even keto versions to make it suitable for any diet.

In this recipe, the bread will have the perfect balance of moisture and crispness for a delightful sandwich. I usually use homemade bread, but Food and Wine also suggests using Pullman and sourdough.

According to Grain Foods Foundation, eating bread is a good way to boost fiber intake, increase energy, and improve metabolism. With a healthy filling, you can certainly make bread healthier too!

You will never run out of bread recipes to try. I enjoy using bread for Bread Pizza, Breakfast Sandwich, and French Toast! What’s your favorite way to use bread?

Egg

Do you like eggs for breakfast?

While you usually use eggs as filling for the bread, let’s mix things up a bit. Instead of using the egg as a filling, let the bread absorb it for better flavor and texture! In fact, eggs can give the sandwich the perfect golden brown finish.

Once you season the egg, it will be tastier with savory, pungent, and peppery flavors. It will also give the sandwich a flaky and crusty quality. Hence, you can trust that the eggs will be great for flavor, texture, and even health.

The Keck Medicine of USC mentioned that eggs could be good for your heart, brain function, eyes, energy, and digestion. Isn’t it amazing how eggs can do wonders for your health and appetite?

If you love eggs for breakfast, then here are more egg recipes you might enjoy:

Mozzarella cheese

What’s missing from the Toasted Sandwich? Maybe it needs some mozzarella cheese!

Never skip the cheese. It’s going to give the sandwich a smooth and luscious quality. The salty and milky flavor of the mozzarella cheese will surely make the sandwich better. Once the cheese melts into the bread, it will become irresistibly delicious.

Just imagine pulling the sandwich apart and seeing the perfectly melted cheese inside. The rich texture of the cheese can certainly make you feel like you’re having gourmet food.

An article by Cheese Grotto mentioned that other cheese options for sandwiches include cheddar, raclette, gouda, pepperjack, and brie. No matter what happens, be sure to add in the cheese, alright?

Butter

It won’t be a Toasted Sandwich recipe without butter.

By toasting the sandwich in butter, the dish will have a slightly sweet and creamy flavor. It will also make the bread crispy for a real “toasted” effect from the flavor, texture, and to the color.

Moreover, the butter will prevent the bread from becoming dry for a moist and soft texture. The aroma of the butter will also make the bread more appetizing. Nothing makes bread better than some butter.

Seasoning

Improve any sandwich recipe with seasonings.

The Toasted Sandwich will definitely taste better with the right herbs and spices. In this recipe, I suggest using garlic powder, onion powder, all-purpose seasoning, and mixed herbs.

You can also use other seasonings of your choice to bring out the flavors that you want. Remember to use just the right amount of seasoning to give the sandwich a pleasing flavor all throughout.

I’m sure that from the ingredients alone, you’ll be able to tell that you’re in for a delightful treat! This dish is definitely something to look forward to!

How easy and simple is it to make Toasted Sandwich?

  1. Use a buttering knife to spread butter on one side of the bread.
  2. In a bowl, mix the eggs with garlic powder, onion powder, all-purpose seasoning, and mixed herbs with a whisk.
  3. Grease the sandwich toaster with butter.
