Feeding a Farmer: Fried Egg Sandwich

I have a new series called Feeding a Farmer. It’s food that can be prepared in a few minutes to make a meal for those last minute meal times.  To find out how this all originated, check out this link.  Keep in mind, none of these foods are glamorous…they are fast…and not too bad tasting.

Hubby loves fried egg sandwiches.  That’s a real blessing for me because we always have an abundance of eggs and they are fast to make!


If you grew up as a farmer’s kid, you know that these are a real farm family staple.  They are simple and easy.

Heat up your pan and fry an egg.  When putting the egg in the sandwich, it’s easiest if the yolk isn’t runny so for this, I break the yolk and flip the egg.  Pop a piece of ham (we love turkey ham)  in the microwave and two slices of toast in the toaster.

When everything is done, assemble your sandwich….
toast, mayo, egg, pepper jack (or other cheese if you like), ham, tomato and lettuce, if you like, and then toast again.   I like to lower my carbs a bit so I typically make mine with just one slice of bread and them cut mine with a fork rather than eat it like a sandwich.

All in all…it’s yummy and a great option for a hot sandwich…and it’s cheap, good food in a hurry.  My kids like these too…after all they grew up on them!

    Dh makes these on Sunday before church. He often puts in sausage patties instead of ham but the ham is still yummy!

    YUM! The only thing I do different is when I flip the egg I layer on the ham, turn off the heat and put a lid on the pan. Then I fix the bread and goodies and DONE!
