Fried Egg Sandwich


White bread or sourdough bread

White American cheese slices

Yellow American cheese slices

Sweet Ham deli sliced

Large Eggs

Melted Butter

kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper



Place one slice of white American on one side of the bread and place one slice of yellow American on the opposite slice. Top each side with a thin piece of honey ham. Have sandwiches assembled so as you remove the eggs from the pan you are ready to go.

Cook one egg over easy per sandwich. Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Remove from the pan without over cooking and gently add one to each white American side. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring both sides of the sandwich together. Do not press down or you will break the yolk.

Heat skillet over medium low heat. Brush each sandwich with melted butter. Place butter side down in skillet. Brush the top with melted butter. Cover loosely with aluminum foil Cook until the bottom is browned. Flip and cook until the other side is browned and cheese is gooey and melted.


Use good quality bread. It really does make a difference. Try it on hearty multi grain bread, sourdough, whole wheat bread, bagels, or split English Muffins.

Don’t skip the cheese. It brings everything together and makes it so tasty. Try different cheese like cheddar, white American, Swiss, Havarti, Pepper Jack, Colby, or Monterey Jack.

For a change of pace top that sandwich with lettuce, arugula, tomato, onion, or mayo.

Melted butter or mayonnaise makes the bread brown so nicely and adds fabulous flavor. You can use salted or unsalted butter.

If you like runny yolks don’t push down on the sandwich. It will all come together as everything melts and browns like an egg in a grilled cheese sandwich.

Cover the skillet loosely with foil so the cheese melts around the egg and is ready when the bread browns.
