    GaylaV's Note:

    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!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 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. 1
      Melt margarine in frying pan.
    2. 2
      Add egg (don't break the yolk, but if you do that is alright too!).
    3. 3
      Gently fry the egg.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle the egg with the salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. (if you don't like hot, leave them off).
    5. 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. 6
      Spread the Cheez Whiz on one side of the bread.
    7. 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. 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).

      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?

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