Fantastic Sandwiches! I made these for my husband and his friends. THEY LOVED THEM. It was the perfect early 11am lunch. With some fresh fruit, and a nice cold glass of milk - he was in heaven. He said he would rather eat my cooking anytime instead of having lunch at local Denver Restaurants. I'll take that as best as I can, and keep making these for him!Reply
I had made these for lunch and cut the recipe in half since we were only two of us. I prepared everything in the morning and brought it to work to pop in the oven. I had used diced ham with the red peppers and a bit of extra green onions with a few dashes of hot sauce. I took mine out at about 40 minutes because they looked cooked, but mine wasn't quite ready, the other one was but not mine. So it definitely needed 45 and a bit more. Personally I think they should be cooked right away once the egg mixture is poured over them, I think the bread has too much time to get mushy if it just sits in the mixture and that could be why it didn't cook properly (JMO)...But the flavor was yummy on my friends. Thanks for sharing your recipe SuzV.Reply
