      This is the Denver Sandwich I remember from childhood. Growing up in the Midwest during the '60's this was a standard offering on most, if not all cafe and coffee shop menus. As other reviewers suggest, you COULD add cheese, but the sandwich we grew up with was served without. Thanks for the great recipe and the memories Chef Dee !!

      Long a standard in our home growing up. The only addition we used was always a thin slice of dill pickle. Can't imagine the sandwich without it. (And I'm not usually a pickle eater.)

      I grilled these rather than serve on toast, just personal preference. I don't think the butter within the egg mixture was necessary, would not use that again. Needed salt and pepper. We added cheese, because can't have a sandwich without :)
      thanks for the recipe.
