LOVED IT! Maite, this sandwich is over-the-top delicious! I can't wait to make it again so I can give it 5 stars. I used sourdough bread and fried the egg over-medium, it was sheer perfection. Thank you! Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.

I can't believe I went half a lifetime without having one of these before. I had the house all to myself to day and this is what I prepared. Forget my usual bacon, egg, and cheddar for awhile. I will make this in its stead. It is really wonderful! Gooey egg yolk with buttered toast along with melted Swiss and warm ham. i know the rest of the family will like these but I may have to keep this little gem to myself! Made for my Babes for ZWT4.
