The BEST-EVER Breakfast Sandwich with Crispy Eggs & Cheese

I´m a big fan of breakfast, it fuels your body and get´s you ready to tackle on the day. With that being said, I present to you The BEST-EVER Breakfast Sandwich with Crispy Eggs & Cheese. This is it folks, it does not get any better than this.

This breakfast sandwich is loaded with so many great flavors, it´s made with the most basic ingredients and comes together in about 20 minutes. With one taste, mornings will become your favorite time of the day 🙂 .

To make this breakfast sandwich, I just used cheese, tomatoes & eggs, and of course some spices & herbs. But the real star of this sandwich is the batter. It´s what takes this sandwich to the next-level in goodness.

TIPS & TRICKS to make this Recipe: I used regular sandwich bread, but make sure to toast it first, otherwise it will fall apart in the batter. I also used sunflower oil to fry the sandwich, but you can use any neutral vegetable oil, such as canola oil. When flipping the sandwich in the pan, becareful not to break the egg yolk, so do the flip in one swift gentle move.

Author Albert Bevia @ Spain on a Fork



  • 4 pieces sandwich bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 slices havarti cheese
  • 1/4 cup virgin olive oil 60 ml
  • dash garlic powder
  • dash onion powder
  • dash sweet smoked Spanish paprika
  • dash dried thyme
  • pinch sea salt
  • dash freshly cracked black pepper


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 64 grams
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder 2 grams
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt 1.25 grams
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1.64 grams
  • 1/4 tsp sweet smoked Spanish paprika .65 grams
  • 1/2 cup water 118 ml


  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil 125 ml


  1. To make the batter, add 1/2 cup all-purpose flour into a large shallow bowl, along with 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp sweet smoked paprika, mix the dry ingredients together, then pour in 1/2 cup cold water and whisk together until you form a creamy batter with no lumps, set aside

  2. For the next step, heat a small fry pan with a medium-high heat and add in a 1/4 cup virgin olive oil, while the oil is heating, thinly slice 1 tomato and toast 4 pieces of bread

  3. After heating the olive oil for 3 to 4 minutes, add 1 egg into the pan, let the egg cook in the olive oil without moving it, this way it develops a crispy texture in the bottom, after 1 minute tilt the pan and splash the hot olive oil on top of the egg using a spatula, only do this for about 10 seconds to not over-cook the egg yolk, remove from the pan and cook your second egg the exact same way

  4. To assemble each sandwich, add 1/2 slice of cheese on top of a piece of toast, then add in 4 slices of tomato, season the tomatoes with sea salt, black pepper, a dash of garlic powder and a dash of onion powder, place another 1/2 slice of cheese over the tomatoes, add in 1 crispy fried egg, season the eggs with a dash of sweet smoked paprika and some dried thyme, place another 1/2 slice of cheese and a piece of toast on top, do not push down on the sandwich, otherwise you risk breaking the egg yolk

  5. Heat a small fry pan with a medium heat and add in 1/2 cup sunflower oil

  6. While the oil is heating, add the sandwich into the bowl with the batter, spoon the batter all over the top of the sandwich, don´t flip the sandwich into the batter, as you risk the chance of breaking the egg yolk

  7. After heating the oil for 4 minutes, carefully add the battered sandwich into the pan, shaking off any excess batter, after 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, gently flip the sandwich to fry the other side, after another 2 to 2 1/2 minutes remove the sandwich from the pan and transfer into a plate with paper towels, fry up your second sandwich in the same way, serve at once, enjoy!
