The Perfect Grilled Cheese Egg Sandwich


There are probably as many ways to make an egg sandwich as there are people who make them. But in my opinion, there is only one way to make the perfect egg sandwich.

I've come to this conclusion after making countless egg sandwiches over the past decade that we've been raising chickens (funny, but I rarely had the craving for an egg sandwich before we got chickens...)






Anyway, I've made them on all different kinds of bread, on toast, on English muffins, and even on bagels.

But in the end, I stumbled upon this concept quite innocently, really. It's a mashup of two simple recipes.

My normal breakfast is just coffee - and if I'm really starving, maybe a few mouthfuls of whatever leftovers I can find in the refrigerator.



But usually just a cup... or two... of coffee.

Then, a couple of hours later, after I've fed the chickens, checked my email, gotten dressed (sometimes in that order, sometimes not!), I decide it's time to eat a proper meal.

One day I couldn't decide if I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich or an egg sandwich. I had some wonderful cheeses in the fridge, so even after I realized I couldn't make up my mind whether I wanted a cheese sandwich or an egg sandwich, I couldn't decide what kind of cheese to use.

So, in the end I made an egg sandwich with TWO different kinds of cheese, and then grilled it. And voila. The best ever grilled cheese egg sandwich.



And here's the recipe.

The Perfect Grilled Cheese Egg Sandwich


Ingredients

(makes one sandwich)

2 slices of any type of bread that you prefer
2 slices of any type cheese that you prefer - two different kinds is the bomb!
2 fresh eggs
Butter
Salt
Pepper

Instructions

Fry two eggs in a bit of butter in a skillet over low heat to your liking and season with salt and pepper. Then stack the eggs one on top of the other to the side in the skillet and add another pat of butter to the skillet.

Place the two slices of bread in the skillet, top each with a slice of cheese, then add a fried egg.

Cook on low heat until the cheese melts and and bread is golden brown. Then flip one bread/cheese/egg slice onto the other, remove from the skillet, and cut the sandwich in half.






On homemade rustic bread is the BEST!

    1. Trader Joes are on the west and east coasts, I know that, but not sure where else. Or try the bakery section of your supermarket for homebaked muffins.

  4. I am new to having my own chickens and I only get one a day, so far. I thought I was one of the few that loved the Vermont Cheddar. I am looking forward to trying the perfect egg sandwich. Thank you for the recipe.

  5. Egg sandwiches always make me think about my dad. He makes the BEST egg sandwiches. It's on plain white bread (un-toasted), with mayo, a fried egg and fresh tomato slices. The bread and tomatoes get warm just from the egg - and the yolk is runny and yummy. Ok...now I want an egg sandwich!
