Tips And Techniques
What bread to use? The classic choice is white. You can also use whole wheat, artisan bread, rye, or toasted bread.
Can’t stop for too long– As the bread will get soggy, especially if your egg mixture had a thinner consistency.
Chunky egg mixture Vs. Smooth egg mixture– This is up to your personal preference. I personally like it chunky for added texture.
Mayonnaise substitute in egg mixture– Use a mayonnaise substitute such as full fat thick Greek yogurt or sour cream. Even hummus, mashed chickpeas, or avocado will work, but the flavor will change based on your choice.
Wash and pat dry lettuce– If it is not pre-washed, make sure to do so, and pat it dry so that the sandwich doesn’t become soggy.
Serve immediately– This ensure you get a sandwich that holds up well and doesn’t become soggy.
Refrigerate– This is best served immediately, but can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 day.
Freezer- Do not freeze, because dairy products and eggs change texture and cannot be reheated well.
