Toasted Sunny-Side up Egg and Cheese Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

My DH loves these sandwiches, try to cook the egg until just slightly soft so the the yolk runs when you bite into it! The amounts listed are only a guidline you may adjust to taste, I usually use 2 eggs for one sandwich, throw a couple slices of bacon or a pork breakfast patty on also, *SOOOO* good! :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 tablespoons butter (or to taste) or 2 -3 tablespoons margarine (or to taste)
  • 1 -2 large egg (I use 2 eggs for one sandwich)
  • salt and black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread or 2 slices white bread
  • 1 -2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 slice American cheese


  1. Toast the 2 slices of bread.
  2. Butter one side of one piece of toast, then on the other slice spread with mayonnaise (use any amount of butter and mayo desired).
  3. Place 1 slice of cheese over either the buttererd side or the mayo side.
  4. Heat about 1-2 tablespoon butter into a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Break eggs into the skillet, then season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  6. Cover the skillet and cook eggs until cooked but leave the yolk semi-soft.
  7. Place the cooked egg/s over the cheese on the bread and top with the remaining slice of toast.

I have made these for years and still enjoy them! It's an old favorite breakfast idea that still is a winner.

I love this sandwich! The mayo and cheese is a new idea as I have always eaten them with HP sauce, s & p. Tried it as written and it was yummy! Thanks Kittencal for a new version of an old favorite!
