Recipe by Helping Hands

Something different for breakfast - quick, easy, and delicious! I often make this with spicy mustard, pepper jack cheese, green chilies, and sliced onion, but I like spicy! Use your creativity and build the breakfast sandwich of your dreams (the possibilities are endless)! :-)

I'm always looking for interesting new ways to prepare my egg sandwiches. I used a round challah roll, had it buttered, used Montarey Jack cheese, some green onions and tomatoes. I didn't use any meat, but it wasn't necassary. The margerine and cheese slightly melted under the warm egg, which was really nice and added a creamy texture to it.
