Egg, Ham and Cheese Toasted Sandwich
During the school year, we are always looking for a fast and easy breakfast, What a joy it is when it can also be scrumptious and nutritious.
When our children were in elementary school, their pediatrician recommended eggs for breakfast. He believed protein was a necessary part of a students diet and would satiate their appetite until lunch.
My entire family refers to my husband as the Sandwich Chef. He really does make the best sandwiches in the world. Today I will share our household's favorite breakfast sandwich. While I usually made these sandwiches for our children, my husband gets complete credit for creating the first masterpiece.

The Right Egg Turner
Finding the right egg turner can be as difficult as seeking a lost treasure.
I personally prefer a spatula that is light weight, has a thin stainless steel blade and an easy grip handle. I also prefer one that is wide enough to actually hold a fried egg for turning without breaking the yolk.

Other Egg Sandwiches
Both of my children are grown now and they have chosen to be vegetarians.
This is a very easy recipe to adapt to the vegetarian diet, simply leave off the ham or use veggie ham.
