Healthy Food Recipes: Italian Breakfast Sandwich

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Additional Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Steps to Cook:

  1. Prepare the Bread: a. Toast the whole-wheat bread slices until lightly golden. b. Set aside the toasted bread slices.

  2. Cook the Eggs: a. In a non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. b. Crack the eggs into the skillet and cook until the whites are set, but the yolks are still slightly runny, about 2-3 minutes. c. Season the eggs with a pinch of salt and black pepper.

  3. Assemble the Sandwiches: a. Place one slice of toasted bread on a flat surface. b. Top with one slice of low-fat mozzarella cheese, one fried egg, one slice of tomato, and a handful of baby spinach leaves. c. Sprinkle the spinach with a pinch of dried oregano. d. Top with another slice of toasted bread to create a sandwich. e. Repeat the process with the remaining ingredients to make 4 sandwiches.

  4. Serve and Enjoy: a. Serve the Italian Breakfast Sandwiches immediately, while the eggs are still warm. b. If desired, you can wrap the sandwiches in parchment paper or foil to enjoy on-the-go.

Cook’s Note:

  • For a heartier breakfast, you can add a slice of lean turkey or prosciutto to the sandwiches.
  • To make the sandwiches more portable, you can use English muffins or mini bagels instead of whole-wheat bread.
  • If you prefer a firmer egg, cook the eggs for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Feel free to adjust the amount of spinach, tomato, or cheese to suit your personal preferences.
  • This recipe can be easily scaled up or down to accommodate different serving sizes.
