Japanese egg sandwich

 I am trying hard to get the boys on a high-protein diet and so far it's going very slowly. While searching for a recipe for egg sandwiches I came across this recipe series on Bon Appetite you tube channel. One of the chefs made a Japanese egg sandwich which looked very delicious so I gave it a try.

I skipped the whole egg that was placed in the middle and used beef luncheon meat instead of Spam  (which is made of pork for those ignorant few)

Recipe adapted from Here

Recipe: Japanese egg sandwich

Makes 10-12 portions


  • 10-12 sandwich bread 
  • 6 boiled eggs
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard or  use American mustard 
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • salt 
  • 1 small can of beef luncheon meat


  1. Slice the beef luncheon meat into thin slices. Heat a dry nonstick frying pan on high heat place the luncheon meat slices on the pan and cook until coloured on one side, flip and cook the other side and remove to a plate. Repeat with the rest of the meat. Set aside.
  2. Cut the boiled eggs in half scoop the yolks into the bowl and mash them. Finely chop the whites of the egg and set aside. 
  3. Into the yolks add mayonnaise and mustard and black pepper. Mix well, stir in the chopped up whites and spring onions. 
  4. Adjust seasoning. 
  5. To assemble the sandwich, take two slices of bread and spread both slices generously with the egg mixture. Place two slices of luncheon meat on one side of the bread and then carefully place the other egg slathered slice of bread on top. Trim the crust and cut the sandwich in half to make two portions. 
  6. Repeat the same with the remaining slices of bread.
