Without a doubt, my dad's favorite breakfast is eggs a la mexicana. Each time I go to Mexico to visit him, I know it will be one of our breakfasts. I frequently prepare breakfast eggs for my family and I like to change up the menu from time to time to add a little variety to our mornings. One such variation is to combine my dad’s favorite breakfast with one of my kid's favorite lunches: the sandwich. The final product? Egg sandwiches a la mexicana! Don’t they sound delicious? I add refried eggs and avocado for a more complete, breakfast that fits neatly on one plate.

  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped

  • 4 bolillos (classic Mexican bread)
  • Refried beans, to taste
