Grilled Ham and Egg Salad Sandwiches

An aunt shared this wonderful recipe with me years ago when I was looking for some low-budget meals. The hearty ham and toasted bread make it a deliciously different kind of egg salad sandwich. -Beverly Stiger, Wolf Creek, Montana

    I made this only once and long ago but it didn't stand out as nothing that great. Infact I thought it was kinda greasy. maby I didn't drain them that well on paper towels. Maby I'll try it again though some time because it does sound so good. I'll try not to use so much oil to fry these in but maby I'll use Pam cooking spray?

    I made this recipe for supper a lot of times before I let someone borrow the copy it was in. Thank goodness I found the recipe again. I have been craving these sandwiches.
