Crushed potato chips put the crunch in this appetizing variation on ham and cheese. “Serve this layered sandwich with a bowl of soup, and you’ll have one of the best comfort-food meals of your life,” assures Karen Wolf of Niles, Illinois.
- 1 tablespoon butter, softened
- 4 slices white bread

- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 tablespoons 2% milk
- 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
