    Serves: 1 

    • 1 slice mortadella
    • 2 teaspoons butter
    • 1 egg
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 2 slices wholemeal bread, toasted
    • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
    • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
    • 2 teaspoons tomato sauce
    • 4 slices pickled dill cucumber
    • 1 thin slice sweet onion
    • 1 slice processed cheese

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Heat a small frypan over medium heat. Cook the mortadella in the hot frypan until it it hot and beginning to brown in spots; set aside.
    2. Melt the butter in the frypan then crack the egg into the butter. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the yolk begins to firm around the sides. Turn the egg over and continue cooking until the yolk is solid, about 4 minutes total. Season the egg with salt and pepper to taste.
    3. While the egg is being cooked spread the toasted bread with mayonnaise, mustard and tomato sauce. Arrange the dill cucumber and onion onto one of the pieces of bread. Place the mortadella and egg over the onions then top the egg with the cheese and the remaining slice of bread.

    Kevin my mom made these for us too and the three of us all loved them! These days I normally make Taylor Ham, egg and cheese sammies but I just had to try this on my gang and they Yummed them all down! The only thing I did differently was grill the bread in a buttered skillet instead of making toast. Thanks so much for the comforting memory Kevin!  -  04 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Anyone even thinking about this recipe needs to try it. My husband makes a very similiar sandwich for me all the time. It is almost the same as Kevin's, except he does not add the onion ( I am going to try it though) and he grills the sandwich after it is assembled (like a grilled cheese). There is just something about the combination of flavors that is just amazing. The fried egg with the mix of condiments and the pickle, OMG Yum!!! If anyone has access to Finnish mustard, this is what we use and prefer to yellow mustard.  -  14 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Huge hit with the kids--especially the littlest. I made only two small changes which was using sliced cheddar cheese instead of American and I omitted the onion for the boys as they don't like it (chopped up in bologna spread, no problem but full slices, they pass). They both ate their sandwiches and asked for another. Winner!  -  11 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
