Reviews for Ham 'n' Egg Sandwich
"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."
"Awesome recipe....BTW OHIO46, did you ever hear of a Fluffernutter?"
"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."
"Several times a year we have weekend fly-ins for our hanglider husbands/wifes. This recipe is perfect for a crowd of hungry fliers. 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 :)"
"This is one of those times I shake my head in amazement and go "why didn't I think of that??" All those years spent on time consuming breakfasts for a crowd. Who knew...."
"OOPS! first time to rate anything...forgot to click on stars.LOL!"
"great sandwich yearound"
"I absolutely love recipes like this one,quick, easy and tasty. Like many have said ...food we usually have on hand.We love the combination and there is no need to go for drive though breakfast...just make it on a smaller bun for individual servings."
"This is a good recipe for lotsa hungry kids too, leave out onion add xtra cheese, even sneak in a leaf or 2 of spinach for those who don't mind. As for ohio46 nasty people aren't welcome here, go be miserable somewhere else."
"I have been on Taste of Home for years now and I enjoy seeing what you all think about these cooking ideas and how you might change them up too! Eveyone that knows me knows that I am a chef of 35 years and love to feed people. I do so with a humble heart and only share knowledge when asked. It is a gift from God and I am blessed to cook and share with as many as I am able. I'm not offended when you give your imput, it's a personal opinion and I can benifit or not if I choose to. I admit as long as I'm here on this earth I never stop learning the possibilties of food, and I will always take notice when someone says "this" might not work. Yes there are some who want to voice they don't see the importance or real origins of where these ideas come from but do two wrongs make a right? Is a mean spirited responce really required. Why are there personal attacks on those rating and reviewing a recipe? How are manners any better, or are they worse...hummm? This site never used to be like this, what is happening here? We all share a common interest and love of cooking and serving others. This is an expression of our selves, is our attack mentality also become part of our expression of this craft? Not for me. God's rich and loving blessings on you all."
"Oh....I forget to point out this is a contest winning recipe. Hmmmm....there has to be something unique & special about it for such a simple sandwich to earn "Contest Winning"."
"Thank you so much for submitting this recipe. My very first thought when reading it was what a quick way to feed a group of people. It is very apparent the recipe is for a crowd. I cook for church & work events so instead of making 10 or 15 individual sandwiches I can make 1 or 2 of these and be done with it. Perhaps reviewers like Ohio46 only has themselves or very few to cook for otherwise they would have realized this twist on a breakfast sandwich is priceless when cooking for a crowd. Also Ohio46 I have a tip for you... when you make your peanut butter & jelly sandwich try lightly buttering the outside of bread and grill for a twist on a peanut butter & jelly sandwich....yummy!!!!"
"Hey Ohio 46, Do you know what manners are? They're a basic concept too. Apparentley some people do no know that simple, everyday idea. Wish I could print a recipe for IT, even though it's obviously too simple for you. Great recipe! So easy to make and just like PB&J, the ingredients are perfect for each other!!! Everybody loved it and requested recipe!!!"
"oops... forgot to rate it! 5 stars all the way!"
"Sometimes we need the obvious and basic recipes. What's wrong with keeping it simple? Besides, this recipe calls for ingredients usually already handy when we need a tasty and easy idea for a quick meal. I love my memory being refreshed by these yummy recipes!"
"Hey- did you all know you can make a peanut butter sandwich by spreading peanut butter on a slice of bread? You can vary it by adding a layer of jelly."
"Well, it's a ham, egg & cheese sandwich ~ I don't know what the hype is about but my husband loves this sandwich! It's very simple to make and I almost always have the ingredients on hand :)"
"Loved this sandwich. I used herb butter and microwaved it for 1 min (to melt cheese) when I made it for a fast breakfast. I've also used a hogie bun when I just needed one serving."
"wow made this for dinner tonight and wow. As my mom is allergic to tomatoes if skipped them and I also omited the onions, but i did as flaked onions the the egg mixture when I cooked and and it gave a fantastic flavour. Both my parents requested that I make this again in the future"
