  2. Cook one egg over easy per sandwich, Remove from the pan without over cooking and gently bring the sides of the sandwich together. DO NOT PRESS DOWN OR YOU WILL BREAK THE YOLK. Heat skillet over medium low heat. Top each sandwich with butter pats. Place butter side down in skillet. Cover loosely with aluminum foil Cook until bread is browned.

  • 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.
