Egg sandwich

This ultra-simple sandwich is our take on the signature served at Hong Kong's Australia Dairy  Company. Shaved leg ham would add another dimension, as would toasting one side of the bread slices, but we love the simplicity of this straight-up version. It's definitely a case of a dish being greater than the sum of its parts.

You'll need

8 eggs 300 ml pouring cream 2 tsp light soy sauce 30 gm butter, diced, plus extra, softened for spreading 8 thick slices soft white bread from a square loaf, crusts trimmed


  • 01
  • Whisk eggs, cream and soy sauce in a bowl to combine and season to taste. Melt butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add egg mixture and cook, gently stirring occasionally, until egg is just set (3-4 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, butter bread, then top half the slices with scrambled egg, sandwich with remaining slices and serve.
