The TikTok Tortilla Egg Sandwich Hack You Need To Try

Thought you already knew how to make an egg sandwich? A viral food hack from TikTok may prove otherwise. The official Food Network account posted this hack, which combines two other famous hacks — the tortilla folding hack, and the egg sandwich hack.

If you haven't seen either of these in action, the tortilla folding hack involves separating your tortilla components into four quadrants, making a single slit going halfway through the tortilla, then folding each segment on top of each other. The result is a triangular-shaped loaded tortilla that you can then fry in a pan. The egg sandwich hack is a bit simpler. It entails adding eggs to a pan, then immediately placing two slices of bread on top. When the eggs cook through, you simply flip the bread which should be stuck to the eggs, add cheese or any other sandwich ingredients, and fold the sandwich halves together.

According to Food Network, when these two hacks are combined, it makes for the ultimate tortilla egg sandwich hybrid, and if the comments section is anything to go by, it's a must-try the next time you make breakfast.

How to do the TikTok egg sandwich hack

As per the instructions on Food Network's TikTok, you'll start by putting butter in a pan, after which you'll pour in beaten eggs. Place the tortilla over the eggs, then flip it over, coating both sides. Once the eggs are fully cooked, remove the tortilla from the pan and transfer it to a cutting board. Just like you would for the original tortilla hack, make a slice halfway through the center of the tortilla, and add bacon, avocado, shredded cheese, and hot sauce to each quadrant. After frying up your sandwich, it's ready to be enjoyed.

For best results, Food Network suggests using the leftover bacon grease to fry the sandwich, as well as using a can covered in foil to weigh down the sandwich as it cooks. This allows for the tortilla to get perfectly toasted. Some commenters also suggest putting hot sauce last to avoid dripping, and others are excited to try it with low-carb tortillas. No matter what ingredients you decide to put in, this TikTok hack is a game-changer for making breakfast sandwiches.
