How to Make Nigerian Sandwich Toast

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 3 adults or 6 children 1x
  • Diet: Vegetarian


This Nigerian Sandwich Toast is delicious, nutritious, easy to make, and enjoyable. Fill it up with all your favorite veggies, and have it on-the-go!


  • 6 slices of whole grain bread (any bread of your choice works, obviously.)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 2 thinly minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of tiny chopped fresh bell pepper (any color; optional)
  • ½ teaspoon of seasoning powder or ½ a seasoning cube (or less according to your taste)
  • ½ teaspoon of salt (or less according to your taste)
  • ¼ black pepper
  • A dash of thyme
  • A dash of crushed red pepper (optional; for extra spiciness
  • 2 teaspoons – 1 tablespoon of olive oil to scramble/fry the eggs
  • Additional 1 tablespoon of olive oil (to grease the bread); you can also use butter if so desired.


First scramble the eggs:

  1. Break eggs into a clean bowl. Add some seasoning powder to the eggs, a dash of crush red pepper, thyme, some black pepper, and salt. Beat/mix and set aside.
  2. Place a pan on the stove, turn the heat to low and allow the pan to warm up. Add oil, allow the oil to heat up and then add the vegetables (onions, tomatoes, garlic, and bell pepper). Sauté vegetables for 3 minutes – 5. Then add the eggs, sprinkle the green onions on the eggs. Gently scramble the eggs for 3-4 minutes on low – medium heat or fully cooked and firm. Scoop into a clean plate to stop from further cooking.

Toasting the Sandwich

  1. Turn your clean sandwich toaster on; lay bread on a cutting board; trim off the brown edges of the bread if so desired. (I usually do not do this every time. Gently use a kitchen brush (or your hand) and spread the olive oil on both sides of the bread. You can also use an oil spray instead.
  2. Divide the eggs into three parts; add a part to the center of the bread and cover with another bread (repeat for the last two parts; making 3 sandwiches with 6 bread slices.
  3. Place the first two bread sandwiches in the sandwich toast maker. Ensure the toaster is locked, the switch light should on red; keep an eye on it because it turns green as soon as the sandwich cooks. (Repeat the process for the last sandwich.)
  4. As soon as the toaster switches from red to green, the sandwich is fully cooked; remove the toast, place on a clean plate and serve by itself, with fresh fruits, with tea, or coffee. You can drizzle some original maple syrup on this toast. Enjoy your delicious and nutritious Nigerian breakfast toast. This recipe serves 3 persons or 6 children.


You can use only egg white if so desired, and this sandwich would still taste delicious.

Also, add some fresh spinach (about ½ a cup) to the egg for some green goodness.
You can also add cheese (I do not like adding cheeses to this).

Each sandwich is ready when the sandwich toaster switches from red to green.

You can use an oil spray instead of an additional tablespoon of olive oil, and you can also spray the sandwich toast maker instead of the bread itself.
