Southern hubby was amazed that my Northern self knew about fried egg sandwiches. I have always just made them with salt and pepper on buttered toast slices, no cheese, no mayo, no ketchup. But the additions sound pretty good. If you cook your eggs over easy the yolk does get kind of messy while eating but I just sop it up with my toast. Also, since this recipe is being compared to fast food I have recently ventured into making them in the microwave. It’s faster and easier and less clean up. Melt a little margerine in a small glass ramekin type bowl. Swirl the margerine around to coat the bowl. Break your egg into the bowl. Prick the yolk gently 2-3 times with a toothpick. It does not run like you might think. Cover your little bowl with wax paper and mike on high for about 45 seconds. You can make more eggs in more bowls at the same time by adding a few more seconds. Slide them out onto your toast. Use a potholder, they are hot. They come out round just like those egg McYouknowhats.

I guess I'm the minority, I didn't like the ketchup on this sandwich.


I changed this up a little. My ingredients are as follows: Fried egg Toasted rye bread Extra sharp white cheddar cheese Bacon (tasty addition) Mayo (no ketchup) I would have liked to add tomato and onion if I had it. Traditional is good too though the way I made them before was just with egg and mayo.
