These protein-packed sandwiches are a delicious start to your day – at sunrise or even a little later.



  • 3 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) fresh trim milk
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices fresh bread – Multigrain, Sourdough or Italian


  1. Place mayonnaise in small microwave-safe bowl; whisk in milk. Microwave on Medium (50% power) just until hot, about 45 seconds, stirring after 30 seconds. Whisk in Parmesan cheese, lemon juice and rind until smooth. Set sauce aside.
  2. Spray large non-stick frypan or skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Crack eggs into pan or onto skillet. Break yolks with edge of spatula. Cook eggs to preferred hardness.
  3. Place tomato slices on 2 slices of bread. Top with fried egg. Spoon about 1 tbsp warm sauce over each egg. Cover with second slice of bread. Serve.


  • The Parmesan cheese sauce can be made ahead and refrigerated. When ready to serve, warm briefly in microwave on Medium-High (75% power).
  • Instead of sliced bread, you can use English muffins or burger buns.
