This classic combination of egg and mayonnaise with crispy and fresh salad on wholewheat bread makes it a healthy choice for a very satisfying lunch.


  • 2 slices wholemeal bread

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • Lettuce

  • Tomato, finely sliced

  • Cress

  • Spanish onion, finely sliced (optional)


  • 1.

    Boil the eggs for 10 minutes, then remove from the water and run under cold water - this prevents them from continuing to cook and from the yolks from turning grey. When they are cool, peel them and add them to a small bowl.

  • 2.

    Add the mayonnaise, salt and pepper and carefully mash the eggs with the back of a fork. Season with a little salt and pepper.

  • 3.

    Fold together until all is combined.

  • 4.

    Spread egg mix onto one slice of the bread, top with lettuce, tomato, Spanish onion and cress.
