Umma’s Egg Toasties



Food that makes you miss childhood is the best food. Would you agree? While I was brainstorming myself of what to make next for the Blogging Marathon #90 theme of “Wrap and Rolls”, my mind kept loitering around the egg toasties that umma would make almost every second Thursday. Thursday is weekend here, and we would have no madrassa that day, so naturally, we would be hungry around tea time. Umma would make toasties every single Thursday, alternating the filling with eggs, chicken or frozen mixed vegetables.


I feel today’s generation is pampered with too many ideas that we are lost as to what to make for our kids, but our mothers had simple ideas and simple dishes, that were cleaned up. I guess many of you would agree to this fact of life. I had some bread sitting in the fridge and I wanted to use it up. Since the girls aren’t there, the bread doesn’t finish as fast as it would. That’s when the egg toastie hit my head.


HD and B love eggs, so I quickly put two to boil and on the side, sauteed the onion filling. The toasties were done in flat 25 minutes, I didn’t even wait for the filling to cool. Hehe… I just made it umma’s way, quite simple, with the hint of mayonnaise in every bite. Umma used to never butter her toastie sheet, and I don’t do it too. Still the bread turns out with soft interiors and crisp sides. They enjoyed their snack like dinner. This goes well in the kid’s lunch box or as a quick fix snack for impromptu guests or those untimely hunger pangs! Off to the recipe…
