So when I first saw the viral TikTok breakfast sandwich video, I was intrigued. Could this be the answer to my busy morning breakfast prayers? I watched the person flawlessly flip their eggs and toast in one perfect motion and minutes later, fold it all up into a neat sandwich.
Because my house is always stocked with plenty of eggs and bread—see above note about my breakfast obsession—and since I now have plenty of free time at home, I decided to put the hack to the test.
How to Make the TikTok Breakfast Sandwich
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 slices of bread
- Butter or oil for your pan
- Cheese and bacon, optional
Whisk two eggs in a bowl, then pour into a greased skillet over medium heat. Dip two slices of bread in the egg mixture, then flip over and place in the skillet. Once the eggs are cooked, flip both the slices of bread over at the same time (so the eggs are now on top). Fold any overlapping edges of egg onto the bread, then flip one slice of bread onto the other to finish off your sandwich.
As someone who has tried—and failed at—tons of viral hacks, I was skeptical. Wouldn’t the bread get soggy? And how was it possible to flip the entire thing at once without making a mess? It seemed too good to be true.
Psst: We made the TikTok whipped coffee, too.
Making the Sandwich
I preheated my pan so the eggs started cooking as soon as I poured them in—which made me feel stressed about quickly dunking my bread and arranging the slices. After waiting about three minutes, I noticed the edges of the eggs curling slightly which, to me, meant it was time to attempt the big flip.
Nervously, I grabbed the widest spatula I own and slipped it underneath—and was pleasantly surprised to find that the concoction was incredibly easy to turn over in one solid piece! I struggled to fold the edges up, however. The overflow egg wanted to stick to the pan rather than fold neatly onto the bread.
I have a new go-to recipe to add to my breakfast repertoire. Seriously—the TikTok breakfast sandwich hack worked so much better than I expected. It was deliciously crispy and warm and the fact that you dip the bread in egg first made it reminiscent of French toast.
My only complaint? I should have added bacon and cheese. Well, there’s always next time…
