Not-so-classic Egg Sandwich

If you’ve spent time in Japan, chances are, you’ve had a Japanese 7 Eleven egg sandwich. Why 7 Eleven? Because it’s where these are traditionally sold in Japan. They’ve become a little bit of a novelty in some US restaurants but are in fact super easy to make at home. This recipe adds an extra twist using whole grain bread and greens to up the nutrition ante.
