We were visiting friends in Colorado and they served this for brunch. We absolutely flipped for these. I have made these on lazy weekends and my family really enjoys this.

A lot like the real thing! Easy to make -- Hit with all the kids (oh, and the hubby).
Made these last night for a quick supper for DH and me. Used hamburger buns because I only had regular sliced bread, and it worked fine. Also used red plum jam as I am not a fan of strawberry. Tasted delicious. Served with microwaved baked potato. Thanks for posting.
I just fixed these for supper, and wow, how good these are. I stayed with your recipe, NurseDi, except that I had a smidgen of cream cheese that needed to be used so I mixed that up with the strawberry jam. I will definitely make these again.
