E.T.O. (Egg, Tomato and Onion) Sandwiches

Susan Bickta


My husband introduced me to this tasty sandwich. His parent's neighbor used to make them to use some of the tomatoes he got from his garden. I was not sure how I'd like the combination, but after trying this sandwich .... I was hooked after the first taste. This has become one of my favorite summertime meals served with fresh corn-on-the-cob from the local farm stand. A real taste of Summer!

  • 3 Tbsp
    butter, divided
  • 4 large
    eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp
    2% milk

  • 4
    slices good quality white bread
  • 3-4 Tbsp
    salad dressing (we like miracle whip) or mayonaisse
  • 4-6
    thin slices fresh tomato
  • 4-6
    thin slices sweet onion (vidalia or candyapple onion)

How to Make E.T.O. (Egg, Tomato and Onion) Sandwiches


  1. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium high heat. meanwhile, break the eggs into a small bowl. Add the milk and beat for 1 minute. Pour into prepared skillet, cover and let cook until done, checking often and flipping once. Omelet should be slightly browned on each side. Set aside.
  2. Spread the remaining butter on two of the bread slices. Place face up on serving plate. Spread salad dressing (or mayo) on other two slices of bread and place face up on plate.
  3. Cut omelet to fit bread slices. Place omelet pieces on top of buttered bread slice.
  4. Top each with 2 or three slices of tomato.
  5. Then add the onion slices. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Top with salad dressing coated bread slice (face down). Cut in half, if desired.
  7. Makes 2 sandwiches. (Hint: I used CandyApple onions -pictured here- since they are now in season, usually in July. Also, try making the omelet with rendered bacon fat. That just takes it to the "next level"!!!)

In my part of the country, one day it's cold the next it's warm. I'm not sure Mother Nature can figure out what season it is. Even if the weather...
