The St. Paul sandwich is a type of sandwich found in Chinese American restaurants in St. Louis, Missouri. The sandwich consists of an egg foo young omelette served with dill pickle slices, onion, mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato between two slices of white bread (a variation is to toast the bread first). The St. Paul sandwich also comes in different combinations and specials, such as chicken, pork, shrimp, beef and other varieties.
- 2 slices white sandwich bread
- whole egg mayonnaise
- sliced tomato

- 2 egg foo yung omelettes, at room temperature or warmed in microwave oven
- 1 lettuce leaf
- Lightly toast the bread so that it has a tinge of colour but remains soft.
