    Grilled Cheese and Egg Sandwich

    Source of Recipe

    From "The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook" by Lisa Steele

    Recipe Introduction

    "Can't decide if you want a fried egg sandwich or a grilled cheese sandwich? Why not have both? I love to experiment with different combinations of cheeses, so go wild! Try combinations like Swiss and Gouda or Havarti and Cheddar. And if you're feeling especially adventurous, slather the bread with pesto before you add the cheese."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 2 to 3 tablespoons butter, divided
    ◦ 4 eggs, divided
    ◦ Kosher salt
    ◦ Freshly ground black pepper
    ◦ 4 slices bread, divided
    ◦ 4 slices cheese, divided


    Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over low heat.

    Fry two eggs over easy or over hard, depending on your preference. Season with salt and pepper. Then stack one egg on top of the other along the side of the skillet. Melt another tablespoon of butter in the skillet.

    Place 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 the bread is golden brown. Then flip one bread/cheese/egg slice onto the other, remove from the skillet, and cut the sandwich in half. Repeat with the remaining bread, eggs, and cheese, adding more butter if necessary.

    Makes 2 sandwiches
