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.


  1. Place 1 hard-boiled egg in a bowl. Roughly chop with a fork or butter knife. Mix in mayonnaise (adjust the amount to taste), and a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Place one slice of bread on a cutting board. Top with arugula, followed by the egg salad made in step 1.

  3. Add the soft boiled egg to the center of the egg salad.

  4. Top with the sliced cucumber, and finish with the other slice of bread.


  • 1 large hard-boiled egg, peeled
  • 1 large soft-boiled egg, peeled
  • 1-2 Tbsp Mayonnaise, or more to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup Arugula
  • 8 thin slices Cucumber
  • 2 slices Whole grain bread

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
