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.

This is a joke right? People who can't assemble a breakfast sandwich without a recipe should probably be institutionalized.

Egg sandwiches are a staple in this house - in many shapes and forms. I was curious to try this one as it had the addition of mayonnaise. I made two sandwiches and used toasted whole grain bread. I liked the ketchup and mayo, but will probably go back to my old standard. My husband left his plain and of course had to add some bacon!

This was good! I took JUSTCYN's idea and tried this one in the microwave, for convenience sake. I sprayed PAM inside a small, square tupperware container, and added the pepper to the egg mixture (I left out the salt, I'm not big on it). This method worked like a charm. From start to finish, I had my sandwich in about three minutes. This is a keeper, no doubt. Perfect for the mornings I'm in a rush and need something quick before class. Not to mention I won't be spending time/money in the McDonald's drive-thru twice a week. Thank you!

This is delicious - as is anything involving fried eggs, in my opinion :)

I fried my eggs in bacon grease and used cheddar cheese instead of American. My kids wanted their sandwiches with ketchup and mayo so I made theirs according to the recipe. I did not, I just shook some Frank's hot sauce over my eggs before I put the bread together. As always, egg sandwiches are economical, quick and filling.
