My boyfriend made it for me after a really hard day. Ever since then it has become a comfort food. This recipe has been passed down through his family.

This made for a good quick breakfast. I followed the recipe other then I didn't add salt to the egg or mayo to the bread. We all enjoyed these.

I love fried egg sandwiches with cheese, they are total comfort food for me. I'm not a big fan of mayonnaise, so will leave that off next time and use butter instead. Made for a quick and filling lunch.

Delicious! We fix fried egg sandwiches for breakfast every once in a while but we don't for some reason add the cheese. We did this morning (grated the cheese first) and it really makes a difference to the sandwich...a must have! Made for Fall Pick A Chef.
