One of the best breakfasts I can think of is los tres golpes, and right behind that is this tres golpes breakfast sandwich. Because who doesn’t love their favorite breakfast in sandwich form?

It’s not everyday that you come across a combination of ingredients that just work together no matter what. Seriously, even in tres golpes sushi, the combo of fried salami, fried cheese, and fried egg just works!

Ingredients you’ll need to make a Dominican breakfast sandwich

  • Bread. I like to use a soft hoagie roll, but try to get your hands on pan de agua or pan sobao.
  • Dominican salami. There are lots of brands on the market, but my family uses Induveca to make salami frito.
  • Queso de freir. There are white and yellow frying cheese varieties, and I recommend trying them both. Yellow is my favorite.
  • Eggs. You can’t forget the egg. It’s 1/3 of the golpes!
  • Tomato. Adds a touch of freshness and acidity to the sandwich.
  • Cabbage. For some extra crunch and freshness. You can substitute for lettuce, spinach, or any green of your choice.
  • Mayo ketchup sauce. What brings this whole sandwich together.

Step by step instructions

  • Soak red onion in white vinegar to pickle. Set aside.
  • Fry Dominican salami and queso de freir until golden brown. Cook eggs sunny side up.
  • Spread mayo ketchup sauce on both sides of the bread roll.
  • Layer ingredients: salami, cheese, cabbage, tomato, drained pickled onions, and eggs.
  • Serve immediately while warm. Buen provecho!

Recipe tips and tricks

  • Choose a soft hoagie roll instead of a hard baguette bread so that you can enjoy the sandwich without destroying the roof of your mouth!
  • Slice a slit half way into each salami slice before frying to ensure even frying.
  • To get perfect sunny side up eggs, cover the pan with a lid after cracking the eggs and sprinkling with salt. Cook on low for 2 minutes or until the whites are fully cooked.

Common questions

What brand of queso de freir is the best?

My favorite brand of queso de freir (frying cheese) is Tropical. They have both a white and yellow frying cheese variety, but I prefer the yellow one. Nothing tastes better than the one my grandma brings back from DR though!

What brand of Dominican frying salami is the best?

The salami brand my family uses is Induveca. They are usually sold in pretty big packets, but it’s a staple in a Dominican kitchen and can be used in so many more recipes beyond los tres golpes.
