Tips And Tricks For The Best Sandwich:
- Use heavy cream in your scrambled eggs for richer eggs.
- Use nice thick slices of bread for the sandwich.
- Avoid overcooking your eggs, as they will make your whole sandwich seem dry.
- To make the best sandwich, make soft yet fluffy eggs that are not overcooked. In order to achieve these, cook your eggs over medium-low heat and carefully stir using a spatula.
- To finish off your eggs right, place your eggs directly onto the cheese. This will give you nicely melted cheese.
For best results, it is a good idea to use thick, fluffy bread that will melt in your mouth but will not overpower the sandwich. Types of bread such as white bread, French bread, and garlic bread all work well. Our favorite to use, however, is brioche bread because of its light and flakey texture.
When choosing cheese, cheddar or American are the two types most used. However, this does not mean that these are the only kinds that can be used. If you have a different kind that you prefer, then try it out as a part of an egg drop sandwich! A few ideas of other good types of cheese to use are provolone, mozzarella, and Colby Jack. If the cheese melts well, then this is going to make your sandwich even better!
Ham and bacon can be used as the meat on your egg drop sandwich. Determining what to use is your personal preference. Both ham and bacon will add a nice salty taste to your meal, you can’t go wrong no matter which one you decide to try!
Eggs are the key to having an amazing sandwich. If your eggs are overcooked, your whole sandwich will seem dry. For best results, try adding whipping cream to your scrambled eggs for a lighter, fluffier egg. Or if you prefer lower fat content in your eggs, try using whole milk or 2% milk.
The Secret To Perfect Eggs
The main part of an egg drop sandwich is, well, eggs. So how do you achieve the perfect eggs? There is actually a really good way to be sure your eggs come out perfect every time.
Start by using a non-stick pan to cook your eggs. Whisk together eggs with heavy cream or whole milk before cooking. Cook eggs over medium-low heat. Don’t get impatient and try to turn the heat up. As eggs are cooking, gently stir with a spatula. As soon as your eggs begin to set, turn the burner off and remove the pan from the burner. Leave the eggs sitting in the pan, and they will continue to cook in the cooling pan. This will give you light and fluffy scrambled eggs that are not overcooked. Give it a try!
Can Your Sandwich Be Saved For Another Day?
Yes, it can be saved for another day, however, it is best when eaten fresh. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to three days. After it has been stored in the fridge, it is likely to not taste as good and might be slightly soggy.
If you desire to warm your sandwich after being stored in the fridge, you can microwave it or place it in the oven. To reheat in the oven, wrap your sandwich in foil and warm at 350 for eight to ten minutes, until it is warmed all the way through.
You can also microwave it. Wrap your sandwich in a paper towel and then microwave for thirty seconds at a time until your sandwich is warmed through. Remove and enjoy.
