Western Egg Sandwich w Spinach

This is one of our favorite egg sandwiches. Using a slightly drippy or jammy egg makes it taste all the better. But if you're watching fat content then well-cooked egg whites are also acceptable. If you are vegan or vegetarian using plant based eggs can be a great way to create a filling sandwich for breakfast.

  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup Spinach Leaves
  • 1/4 Cup Green pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Onion
  • 1 Tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Butter
  • 1 Slice American Cheese
  • 1 Sandwich Bun


  • Add the olive oil to a frying pan.
  • Add the peppers and onions, cook for 3 -4 minutes.
  • Cook until all vegetables are translucent.
  • Remove the vegetables to a bowl and set aside
  • Toast your bun in either a toaster oven or oven at 400 F (Optional)
  • Watch the bun carefully and remove when lightly browned
  • Add the egg to the pan
  • Flip the egg once it is stable, cook just a bit less than your desired done-ness
  • Test for the desired doneness by pressing on the yolk to feel it. If it is very soft to the touch, you still have a very runny egg, this is not recommended.  If your egg has a little firmness but still soft like a marshmallow you have a medium egg. That is how I did mine. If the egg has no softness and is firm, you have a hard egg.
  • Add the cheese slice in the pan to the top of your cooked egg
  • As the cheese is melting add the spinach to the pan but do not over cook it. You just want to wilt it.
  • Place the spinach on top of the egg Carefully remove the cheesy, spinachy egg from the pan and add it to your toasted bun.
  • Add the onions and peppers on top and the top of the bun
