Whenever the whole family gets together for a holiday or long weekend, they request this all-in-one breakfast sandwich. I can feed everyone by stacking ham, tomato, scrambled eggs, onion and cheese inside a loaf of French bread. Then I simply pop it in the oven to warm up. —DeeDee Newton, Toronto, Ontario

"Really enjoyed this recipe. I was short on time, so I put the ham and cheese on top of the eggs in the skillet and put it all on a hamburger bun with the tomato and onion. Would really be good made as directed with the french bread. Great for a crowd. Thanks for sharing!"

"there is way too much sodium,carbs,fat grams, cholesterol & anything else that you could think of. I am a diabetic & I can't eat that many carbs or even have that much sodium in one meal. I would be in the hospital with an overdose of carbs & high blood pressure in a New York minute. This sandwich is not for me. Why don't they have some low carb & low fat,sodium & low cholesterol recipes on this website for a change?"

"Oh my, How this brings back memories?.. I first had this breakfast sandwich when my parents and I lived in Verdun, France. My father was military so I was born an army brat. Back in the early 60?s my mother would make this with ?true? French bread. This has been a family and personal favorite for fifty years."

"I would like to know how to cut the unhealthy cholesterol and sodium from this because I have trouble with both. Maybe some low sodium ham? Could egg substitute be cooked in place of reg. eggs? Just pondering these possibilities to make it more healthy for me and my family."

Many mornings us non-fliers spend making bacon,eggs,toast even BK casseroles ect....Never again! I love this recipe and can't wait to use it come flying season......Thanks :)"
