Pan Fry


  • 1
  • 2 slice
    cappricola or round ham or bacon
  • 1
    crimini mushroom, sliced (a crimini is also known as a baby bella)
  • 2 Tbsp
  • 1 clove
    garlic, minced
  • ·
    mozzarella cheese
  • 2 slice
    bread or english muffin
  • 1-2 Tbsp

How to Make The Great Egg Sandwich


  1. Spread mayonnaise onto bread or English Muffin. Place 1 Tbsp butter into warm, small frying pan. Saute mushroom in butter until almost tender.
  2. Add garlic & finish mushroom till tender & garlic is fragrant. Remove from pan.
  3. Add remaining Tbsp of butter into pan. Lay 1 slice ham or bacon in pan. Break egg over the ham slice, breaking & slightly stirring the egg yolk.
  4. Add mushroom/garlic saute back on top of the egg. Top with mozzarella & second ham slice.
  5. Flip egg/ham combo as best you can & let fry on the other side for 45-60 seconds. Flip egg/ham filling out onto prepared bread & enjoy!
  6. Chef's Note: You can use ham, bacon, or your favorite meat here. The congealing of the cooked egg & the melting cheese functions to hold everything together. If you use bacon & like it crispier, par-fry it like the mushrooms. If you do this, you can use the bacon fat in place of the butter in the pan.
  7. Variations: Get creative! Try adding some veggies like peppers & onions; some herbs like basil or dill; change up the cheese to Swiss or Gouda (any creamy melting cheese). You can also turn the filling out onto bread buttered on the OUTSIDE & turn it into a Great Grilled Cheese & Egg Sandwich!
