This genius one-pan omelet hack is nearly one of the best viral recipes to come out of the For You Page ever. Known as the TikTok Egg Sandwich, all you need is two pieces of bread and some eggs to create the most decadent, perfect, and gooey sandwich ever. 

Let’s get started on the TikTok Breakfast Sandwich!

Why you will love this Hack

One Pan- Everyone loves a one-pan hack. There are fewer dishes, simplicity in the recipe, and it’s a perfect go-to for a one-person meal or the whole family. 

On the Go – Breakfast sandwiches are an on-the-go meal that you can carry to the bus stop, eat with one hand in the car or bring to your desk. This all-encompassing sandwich with eggs, crispy bacon, and melty cheese is a whole meal in a few minutes. 

Great for breakfast or dinner – While it’s aptly named breakfast sandwich after eating traditional breakfast foods, we enjoy this at dinner time in our house! If you want a simple and easy dinner, this viral sandwich is going to hit the spot. Serve with extra bacon, hashbrowns, or some fresh fruit.

Ingredients

  • Bread – the original cheese sandwich uses regular white bread slices; however, once you understand the folding technique, this method should work well for toasted bagels and English muffins as well. 
  • Cheddar cheese – Cheddar cheese is the default for eggs, but any shredded cheese kind works fine! Suggestions I love are cheese blends, gouda, Colby, or simple American. American Cheese (in the slice version) is a super fast-melting and straightforward way to include cheese on a breakfast sandwich. 
  • Bacon– Freshly cooked and crumbled bacon works best but in a pinch, and to bring a little bacon flavor, bacon bits make an acceptable substitution in most breakfast recipes.
  • Butter – if you prefer, non-stick cooking spray is a substitution, but you will miss out on all the great butter flavors, which help define the perfect egg sandwich. 
  • Eggs – We use whole eggs, but this sandwich could also be made with just egg whites as long as they cover the pan.

Expert Tips

Does this TikTok Trend work? YES! The key here is to make sure the pan is large enough to get a spatula quickly underneath the egg. I have done this a few times, and making sure I have a non-stick cooperative pan that is large enough to fit two pieces of bread is the key. 

Pre-make your bacon! Eggs cook very fast, so it’s best to have the bacon ready. In this case, you can use microwave bacon for a less than 1-minute version. Or, if not in a hurry, make bacon in the air fryer or make bacon in the oven. 

Bacon and cheese are optional. While I cannot imagine eating just an egg and a slice of bread, feel free to add vegetables like spinach and tomatoes and include other spices like pepper, salt, and even a dash of sriracha. This egg sandwich recipe is super customizable.

  1. From my perspective, this did not work out very well. You would either have to have a huge spatula in order to be able to turn two pieces of bread at once or maybe you could somehow flip the pan over onto a plate, and then slide everything back into the pan. When I tried to flip my sandwich the egg fell apart. I had a bit of a mess. I got everything put back together, but certainly not in the way that it looks in the pictures and in the TikTok. Also, I used one slice of cheese and found that to be plenty cheesy for me , I came away from this thinking it would be better to just scramble the egg, maybe even flat in the pan as with this but instead of adding the bread at that point, fold the egg into a size to fit your bread, put it on the bread with your ham and your cheese, and then grill it . I also buttered the bread, so it would brown.

  2. Two more comments. Did it taste good? Yes, indeed it did. At some point in the process I would add salt and pepper.
