It’s a shame that most people will agree that an egg sandwich in a pan is one of those things that just has to be made. It seems that everybody has their own way of putting one together and they almost never go out of style. If you are like most people though, you probably end up making just one egg sandwich at a time so that you can keep track of all of the different ingredients and styles that are out there. Here are some ways that you might want to try out to make that perfect sandwich in a pan.

Use Meat Thermometer To Determine When The Egg Sandwich Is Done

One method that you can use to make an egg sandwich in a pan is to cook the egg sandwich on the griddle. You can usually use a meat thermometer to determine when the egg sandwich is done because it should set easily. A lot of people like to put a little bread crumbs in the center of the sandwich and fold the egg sandwich in half to make it easier to wrap. Some even place toothpicks in the centers to hold it in place.

Another method that you can use to make an egg sandwich in a pan is to cook it in the same pan that you will be baking the sandwich in. In fact, this is usually the preferred method for many people. The problem with this is that the egg may not brown as quickly or as well as you would like it to and it also takes a bit longer to cook. In fact, it may actually take up to 10 minutes for the egg to set.

The Way That You Fold The Sandwich

The secret behind the success of this method is the way that you fold the sandwich. Usually the egg will be folded into quarters or thirds first while the breading is still on the pan. Then you will just continue to fold it over while in the middle of the egg. This ensures that the egg stays inside out and that it gets cooked all the way through. You should start to get a golden brown when you are done checking on the egg but it can take a bit more time depending on how large your egg is.

You can also cook an egg sandwich in a skillet by frying it in a skillet that has two sides. This is great for when you have a large group of people eating it. Simply pour the egg white into the skillet and allow it to set up. Then you can continue to eat while it bakes.

Waffle Griddle- Way To Make An Egg Sandwich

A third way to make an egg sandwich in a pan is to cook it on the griddle. To do this you will need a waffle griddle. These come in two basic styles, the flat bottomed and the nonstick type. Some people prefer the flat bottomed griddle because it allows you to cook the egg white directly to its optimum egg white cooking temperature. As you flip the sandwich, it will naturally rise to the top. You will want to make sure that the waffle griddle is at a height where you won’t be able to see any of the yolks.

The final way to make egg sandwiches in a pan is to cook them in a frying pan. The advantage to this method is that you can control the temperature significantly. To cook the egg sandwiches in a frying pan, simply place them on one side of the pan and wait for them to start to set up. Turn over the egg sandwiches once or twice and continue to flip until they are done.

Summing Up

There are a lot of different methods that you can use to make egg sandwiches in a pan. Just be sure that you allow enough time for them to cook thoroughly. Do not open the sandwich until the egg whites are set to their optimum egg white volume. When you are finished, your egg sandwich will be absolutely delicious!
