Fried Egg Sandwiches


Last week, our Kroger store still had eggs on sale after Easter, so I picked up a couple more dozen.  And we had Fried Egg Sandwiches for dinner one night. Since the boys like my husband’s egg sandwiches better than mine (oh, darn) he made dinner.

We don’t really use a recipe, but this is how he makes his sandwiches.

Melt butter on the electric griddle, break the egg on the griddle, then use a fork to break the yoke, season with salt and pepper. Flip to cook on both sides. Toast bread and serve warm with a slice of cheese.

Now, I know this meal is not exciting or anything special, however, this is the breakdown of what we spent to feed our family.

1/2 dozen eggs = .45

1/2 loaf of bread = .35

6 slices of cheese = .36 (bought on sale)

Total for the meal $1.16

Some other side dishes that you could serve with these sandwiches would be a salad, a veggie or even macaroni and cheese.

Now, that’s exciting and pretty special!

    I love fried egg sandwiches, but I have to put ketchup on them! The way you make them sounds like an Egg McMuffin. Yum!

  2. We love breakfast for dinner. I’ll let it pass as “meatless” if you omit the ham. ;)

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Cheap, simple, and one our favs! If we can find bacon on sale we like to throw that on there as well. YUM!

  6. We love eggs and egg sandwiches too. This is the time to buy eggs on sale.
