I am a huge breakfast nut. I just love eggs. I love them scrambled, easy over, hard boiled, poached, and sunny side up. I love omelettes, quiches, egg salad, deviled eggs, stratas, fritatas and egg sandwiches. This breakfast sandwich is so quick and simple. I am sure that even a novice cook can handle this recipe. I have seen other recipes for breakfast egg sandwiches but they look a little complicated. I am not saying they aren’t delectable but in the morning every minute counts!
Do you like eggs? Do you like your yolks runny or firmed up? You can adapt this recipe very simply to the way you like your eggs cooked. You could even scramble them or cook them like an omelette.
How do you make an Egg Sandwich?
First assemble the bread, ham and cheese so when your eggs are ready you can slide them on. Next place one slice of white American or cheese of your choice on one slice of the bread. Then place one slice of yellow American or cheese of your choice on the opposite slice. Top each side with a thin piece of honey ham.
Now cook one egg per sandwich over easy in a little butter or olive oil. You can cook it so the yolk is set or runny. If runny gently put the sandwiches together or the yolk will crack. Next put thin pats of butter on the top slice and carefully move it to a hot skillet. Place it in the skillet butter side down. Top the other slice with butter pats. Cook over medium low heat and cover the skillet loosely with aluminum foil. Flip to brown both sides.
Tips on making awesome Egg Sandwiches!
- Use good quality bread. It really does make a difference.
- Don’t skip the cheese. It brings everything together and makes it so tasty.
- Butter makes the bread brown so nicely and adds fabulous flavor. You can use salted or unsalted butter.
- If you like your eggs runny don’t push down on the sandwich. It will all come together as everything melts and browns.
- Cover the skillet loosely with foil so the cheese melts around the egg and is ready when the bread browns.
