My Favorite Fried Egg Breakfast Sandwich

I woke up crabby.  We had at least six inches of snow overnight.  I rolled out of bed and headed out on hopefully my final date with the snow blower and shovel for this season.  Spring is taking its sweet time on arriving.  I came in cold, wet and hungry.  The bowl of chicken eggs on the counter was calling me- breakfast time!  I am always cheered up by a good fried egg sandwich.  Even the simplest things quickly turn my mood around.  Thank you chickens!

Ingredients:
Two slices of crusty french loaf
Two fresh eggs
Sliced Monterey Jack Cheese- yes that is a big hunk of it in the picture. I love my cheese!
Salt and Pepper
Cooking spray
Preparation:
 

Spray the skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Once the pan is warmed, fry up the eggs. Allow the white portion of the egg to cook almost completely through prior to flipping. Flip the egg, top with cheese, and cook until the yolk is done to your liking.

Toast your bread.
Top your toast with the eggs and cheese. Salt and pepper to taste.
Enjoy!

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • Love my morning fried fresh egg, love cheese but stomach does not agree, a little goat cheese might work!

  • Simply delicious!!! Like you, I sure love those precious eggs our "girls" lay for us each day. This sandwich is calling me… xoxo

  • That looks mighty tasty! I may have to try that this weekend with some homemade buns.

  • Oh, that does look so good.

    I only recently discovered poached eggs. YUMMY! Curious if you have a favorite thing to do w/ poached eggs?

    I just eat them w/ toast. And boy does having fresh eggs make a difference. I just crack them right into the boiling water. No vinegar, no cracking them in a separate container and slipping them into the water. Fresh eggs really DO make a difference.

    • I love a good Eggs Benedict with poached eggs. So delicious. It is truly a weakness of mine. There is nothing like the taste of fresh eggs!

  • That looks delicious! Maybe I will make one myself to brighten up my morning! We got a lot of snow too out where I live so I feel your pain! Hope you enjoy your food!

  • I really like cheese with my eggs.. I gave up cheese for Lent and I am so looking forward to eating it again at Easter.

  • We eat a lot of different eggs dishes, but a good old fashioned fried egg sandwich is tops on our list. Yours looks delicious.
