Bacon ‘n’ Egg Sandwiches

I came across this unique grilled combo when I was digging in my mom's recipe box. The crisp bacon, hard-boiled eggs and crunchy green onions make these cozy sandwiches look impressive when company drops by for lunch. Best of all, they're a snap to assemble. —Ann Fuemmeler, Glasgow, Missouri

    This delicious recipe was breakfast recently. I followed the recipe almost exactly except for paring it down for one. I used whole wheat bread. If a hard boiled egg is not available, I can see where a fried egg or scrambled egg would work. Don't worry about the green onions. The few I used gave the sandwich a nice pop of flavor without being overpowering. I highly recommend this recipe. Prepared 4-4-19

    I love this sandwich! The taste of the green onions, sour cream and cheese all compliment the hard boiled egg. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it! I have been making this for years, ever since it was printed int the magazine. It is a family favorite!

    I though this was very good. A new twist to the good old fashion grilled cheese. Even though it called for green onion, I would go alittle easy on topping it on the sandwich. Kind of took over on the delicate flavorings.

    An egg scrambled with the cheese & onion is really good. Didn't like the hard boiled egg.

    I tried it with and without the eggs. Preferred without.

    A new twist to the grilled cheese sandwich. Sounds great and I'm sure my husband will enjoy it. Who doesn't like bacon! I'll try it out on him this weekend. Thanks for the recipe! ~Bettina
