Weekend brunch is one of my favorite meals of the week, and I got pretty creative this week with a sourdough breakfast sandwich! This is the best recipe if you have extra sourdough bread, and want a quick and simple brunch.
I spread cream cheese in between toasted sourdough bread, loaded on an egg and some arugula (because #fancy) and it was SO FREAKING GOOD! If you are a breakfast sandwich lover, this is one sandwich you’re going to want to make again and again.
This Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich Is:

Easiest Recipes with Leftover Sourdough
This sourdough breakfast sandwich is what I call an Easy Weekend Meal – which is on your table in under 30 minutes. These quick and simple recipes are perfect for those days when you want a healthy homecooked breakfast but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. I have a whole section of The Herbeevore dedicated to Easy Weeknight Meals, that are great for the whole family. Buy your bread the day before (or make it the day before, my no knead recipe is here on The Herbeevore!) and prep your toppings in the morning. This crowd pleasing breakfast can be ready in no time… perfect for hungry guests just waking up / or to be honest, great for a hung over breakfast after you’ve hosted a rowdy gang. Yea, I’ve said it.
What’s In This Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich?
- Sourdough Starter Discard: you can buy sourdough starter here, or I have a great guide on how to make your own in one week!
- Toppings for the sandwich! I loaded mine with a fried egg and some fresh chopped parsley, but here are some other amazing ideas to top your sandwich with!
- Avocado: I love this fruit, avocados are one of my favorite foods of all time. I used to love getting loads of fresh ripe avocados from my friend’s trees when I lived in California. Now that I’m on the East Coast, my love of avos is still strong, but I get them at Whole Foods instead of freshly picked. If you want to level up your avocado game, my avocado lime salad recipe is a breakfast sandwich favorite!
- Alfalfa Sprouts
- Bell Pepper: If you don’t have fresh peppers, these sweet roasted red peppers are a great substitute! I love adding them to breakfast bakes, sandwiches or wraps, and soups.
- Arugula or Fresh Spinach
- Kalamata Olives: make sure they are pitted! I love the rich briny flavor of these herby kalamata olives, which have a purple hue and a really nice flavor. These Greek olives are fantastic for adding to salads, to dips, or just as a quick snack. I like to use these olive packs, which are great for when you need a handful of olives like in this dish.
- Cucumber Slices: cucumber and tzatziki is a classic combo, try it out!
- Sliced Tomato
Or mix/match all of these amazing toppings for a make-your-own-breakfast-sandwich-bar for the perfect brunch. A great recipe idea for entertaining for a brunch, anniversary party, potluck, baby shower, or bridal brunch. Simple and everyone can make their own custom sandwich.

Perfect for leftover cheeses, meats, or sliced cucumbers from last night’s party… enjoy a cucumber yogurt breakfast sandwich.

Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich
- Toast the slices of sourdough bread until they are golden brown.
- Cook eggs according to your favorite method (scrambling, over easy, poached, etc.) I fried mine in 1 tablespoon olive oil for 6 minutes over low heat, and flipping them and cooking for 3 minutes on the other side.
- On each sandwich, spread 1 piece of sourdough bread with 1 tablespoon of cream cheese spread. Add the fried egg and arugula on top. Add any other toppings above that you love, and mangia!
