I love a toastie for breakfast, after all what better way to set yourself up for the day than having a hot meal that is just enough to leave you energized but without the heaviness of a full cooked breakfast.
Now, top of my list for breakfast toasties and omelette toasties. They are a great way to start the day and this simple Frankfurter version is no exception. After all, who doesn’t want hot dogs and eggs for breakfast.
Plus, this whole dish can be ready in under ten minutes.
Learn how to make this omelette breakfast toastie by watching my short video.
The following ingredients are required to
- 2 Frankfurter sausages chopped into bite size chunks
- 1 egg
- 2 slices of bread
- Knob of Butter
- BBQ Sauce
Hot dog sausages may not be the healthiest of food but there is no denying that a simple smoky bratwurst is very tasty and it is even better when added to an omelette toastie.
For this recipe I’ve used the Herta Classic Frankfurters.
A super food wrapped in it’s own packaging. Beat the egg lightly before adding it to the pan and try not to over cook it. You want it firm but not dry.
Any bread will do for this toastie. If you have a sourdough loaf to hand it will be absolutely delicious and woul dbe my top choice. However, regular bread is fine and still very tasty.
Use a generous knob of butter when cooking the omelette as, everything is better with butter. My new favorite phrase.
I used a BBQ sauce to finish off this toasted sandwich but you could also opt for ketchup, mayonnaise or brown sauce (it’s a Brit thing).
So, I haven’t added any cheese to this recipe but it would be very easy to do. Simply add grated cheddar or a slice of Gouda to the omelette mixture as it cooks.
Follow these directions to make this frankfurter and egg recipe.

To make a vegetarian version of this dish simply use vegetarian or plant based hot dogs.

Small frying pan
I used my trustee small frying pan to cook the frankfurters and omelette
Simple is best for this toasted sandwich so I cooked the bread in the toaster. I use a four slice toaster similar to the one above as it allows me to make two sandwiches at once. When you have three kids like me this is very handy.
