  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the eggs until the white is completely set, but the yolks are still soft , flipping once.
  2. Spread the mango chutney evenly on four pieces of toasted bread. Place a fried egg on a slice of bread, break the yolk and season egg with a dash of chili sauce. Repeat with two of the remaining pieces of toast and the remaining two eggs. Stack the pieces so that the egg and toast alternate layers. Place the final piece of toast on top and serve immediately.

"It's like a cross between food a bowel surgery." Eat it before the bread dissolves. Brilliant.

The sandwich here is okay, but isn't really true to the the show.

Like a road accident of flavours. We used a chili sauce that was rich and had a hint of garlic. We also used three slices of bread and lightly toasted them all. We were apprehensive but both agreed it was surprisingly toothsome. The sandwich was more than the sum of its parts.

This was an AWESOME sandwich!!!!!! I did only 3 slices of bread and 2 eggs, just cause I didn't think I could eat that much. I was right, I was so full, but my gosh it was so good! I wasn't sure if chili sauce meant some kind of hot sauce or the actual sweet chili sauce, but I did use a hot habanero pepper sauce and it was a great spicy contrast to the sweet chutney. Will make this again for the husband definitely!!!

A must for all Red Dwarf fans! I left the yolks a little soft, which really added to the overall flavour of the sandwich. I definitely recommend toasting the bread lightly in a buttered saucepan. And be sure to load on plenty of mango chutney and chili sauce. We all agreed this was surprisingly tasty!

As a Red Dwarf fan, I've been wanting to make this sandwich for years. Definitely requires toast, not the floppy bread they use on the actual show though. We used a Korean sweet chili paste, and the mix of flavors was intense. I'd have one every morning if I could!

Delicious! Another alternative (and a way to skip a few steps) grab some mango kuchela out of the import aisle of the grocery store. It's a Carribean preserve of mangos and green peppers and works so well with a little mayonaise or veganaise in place of the butter and multigrain bread.

Yummy! I served it on flaxseed toast with habenero mango chutney and a little bit of homemade mayonnaise. My partner and I were enchanted by the peculiar taste! Definitely a must-have (at least once in a lifetime) sandwich.
