Italian Egg Sandwiches

"i saw this on Everyday italian and have tweaked it to my taste a little. This is by all means to die for. I am a picky eater and would never have thought that eggs and tomato sauce would be good, but this is superb. Breakfast, lunch, brunch, midnight snack. My husband and i love this. The kids not so much, but that means more for us! Please try it and let me know what you think."

Ready In:


  • 2 slices good quality bread, toasted pretty crunchy, per person
  • 1 tablespoon pizza sauce, per slice
  • 2 eggs, per person
  • garlic salt
  • parmesan cheese


  • toast your bread. I like D'Annuzios. Use a good quality french, italian or ciabatta. Fry egg to your personal preference, me, i like it over easy. sprinkle with garlic salt to taste. Heat pizza sauce in microwave, then spread on toasted bread.You may use more than 1 tbsp if you like it saucey. Place your egg on top of sauce and sprinkle liberally with freshly grated parmesan. You may use marina, spaghetti or plain tomato sauce, but i found i really prefer a good quality pizza sauce. Enjoy!

  1. This is fantastic! I thought it would be good but was surprised at just how great it was. I used pizza sauce, eggs over easy, and added a bit of parsley. Quick, easy, flavorful - loved it - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011
  2. Wow!!! What a good Idea. I had some left over sauce from my meatball dinner last night, a couple of slices of garlic bread, and, no idea what to do with it. Sooo... I pan toasted the bread, warmed the sauce, fried an egg and topped with Italian parsley, pancetta crumbles and shaved Parma. cheese. It took all of 10 minutes from fridge to plate. My co-workers might think much of the garlic toast first thing in the morning, but that's why they invented mouth wash. NOT Italian???? You can call it Korean or East Indian for all I care as long as I can call it good. And I do.
  3. Not mouth watering but something a little different to try. I wish I had homemade sauce but I didn't and used a store bought sauce. I might try it again with my own. Otherwise, I'll skip this one.
  4. It's terrifying that anyone would think this was an Italian sandwich because "the chef" threw some inedible pizza sauce and cheap grated cheese on an equally dreary palette.
  5. Mouth Watering...


Part time office worker, full time servant to 2 growing boys, and 1 wonderful husband! I work for my husband so i quess you could say i'm sleeping with my boss! I love to eat. While i'm eating 1 meal, i'm thinking about what i want to eat at the next meal. I could just live on sweets, and take a pill for all my vitamins, and nutrition. I have no strong passions other than being quite lazy. I strive to be more physically active, but that usually requires me to move. I quess i would rather die happy and slightly overweight, than skinny and hungry.
