Simple and delicious! I made this for my breakfast on Sunflower Flax bread as I didn't have any pumpernickel, and it was lovely. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT 3:)

Loved it! My eggs were still warm and this was a wonderful lunch. I did have to make it into a closed face sandwich though becuase I kept loosing the egg off the top LOL. I went shopping for ham and chives yesterday evening and that's a double edged sword shopping time... yes it was wonderfully quiet but the only chives they had left in the herb corner looked limp and nasty and they just shrugged their shoulders in a take them or leave them attitude, so I left them... Next time when I'm at my regular supermarket I will get them to include becuase I adore chives. This was healthy and filling and gave me an energy burst for the afternoon. Please see my rating system: that's worth 4 stars. Thanks!
