Fried Egg Sandwich

Today's post is all about the fried egg sandwich. 



I am having so much fun reading all the memories people are sharing about growing up with tomato sandwiches after my tomato sandwich post on Wednesday, Summer's Favorite Sandwich. This afternoon, when I was making a fried egg sandwich for lunch, I thought it would be another fun post for people to share their favorite ways to make this old school favorite.



*Note to my southern Duke's Mayonnaise friends (because I know I'm going to get grief for having Hellmann's in the photo above)...yes, yes, yes, I know how awesome ya'll think Duke's mayo is, that NOTHING compares (mayo wars)...I still prefer my Hellmann's. Sorry, not sorry. Haha! But please feel free to remind me. 

I grew up with fried egg sandwiches, another childhood staple and favorite. Growing up, our fried egg sandwiches were simple - toasted white bread with Hellmann's or Miracle Whip, an egg or two fried in butter, with salt and pepper. I like my eggs well done (over hard). Simple to make, so good. In the summer, fresh sliced garden tomatoes are a must and if I want some crunch, I'll add some lettuce too.

My grandparents loved to poach their eggs over easy and have them over buttered toast (using fleishman margarine) with salt and pepper - an open face egg sandwich and a little healthier (Poached Egg on Toast Recipe).

Mayonnaise Wars

Today I am taking a quick poll on Facebook and on my blog - which mayonnaise is your favorite?



Technically, Miracle Whip is not mayonnaise - but to many people it is...so it's included. I grew up referring to Miracle Whip as mayo, using it like mayo. Here is the reason it's TECHNICALLY not mayo: Miracle Whip Vs. Mayonnaise 

After sharing my Tomato Sandwich post yesterday, many people left comments on Facebook stating I should use Duke's Mayo, NOT Hellmann's. I grew up in Michigan and had never heard of Duke's Mayonnaise, it wasn't even available in stores. I only learned about Duke's when I started blogging and following southern food bloggers. When I moved to Georgia a few months ago, the first thing on my list was to purchase some Duke's mayo, to find out what the fuss was all about...and I must say, I prefer Hellmann's. I'm sure those are some fighting words. Ha!

*Update, July 21:  Who knew adding Miracle Whip alongside mayo would start another food fight on Facebook! I love reading all the opinions/comments - some are very strong. Too funny!



What's your favorite mayo?
