Fried Egg and Cheese Sandwich

This is an old family favorite. I have added a little heat to it with the pepper flakes. Fried onions are also a nice option to make it a little special. Try it with a little Thousand Island Dressing. Cheddar cheese is fine but Cheez Whiz does the trick!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons margarine (or butter)
  • 2 slices bread (multigrain is best)
  • 1 tablespoon Cheez Whiz (or your favorite cheese)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • red pepper flakes (to taste)


  1. Melt margarine in frying pan.
  2. Add egg (don't break the yolk, but if you do that is alright too!).
  3. Gently fry the egg.
  4. Sprinkle the egg with the salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. (if you don't like hot, leave them off).
  5. Flip the egg over. I like the yolk to be a bit soft. Polk the yolk after you have turned the egg so that a bit of the yolk seeps out.
  6. Spread the Cheez Whiz on one side of the bread.
  7. Put the egg on the bread and top with the other slice of bread. (I like the side with the pepper flakes to meet the Cheez Whiz).
  8. Return the sandwich to your fryng pan and grill until golden, flip over and grill the other side. (I don't butter the sandwich before frying).
  9. Enjoy!

I give this 5 stars because it is good. Many of us grew up having these for a quick Sunday night supper, quick breakfast for sports-playing kids, but seriously, is this really a recipe?

I love anything with cheese whiz so this is right up my alley! Had to make 2. 1 just wasn't enough!

It's a cross between a grilled cheese and a fried egg sandwich!
