This is a fantastic breakfast sandwich, but it’s also awesome for lunch or for an afternoon snack.

Recipe Courtesy of Lori Lange and Eggland’s Best Eggs

“For the Denver part of the sandwich (think “Denver omelette”), you’ll need onion, bell pepper, ham, cheese and eggs. You’ll be scrambling them up into a chunky scramble. That scrambled Denver is divided between two buttery pieces of toasted egg bread. You can eat these with or without the ketchup. I recommend ketchup!”

-Lori

Ingredients

For the Dad’s ‘Denver’ Egg Sandwiches

  • 3 Large eggs, such as Eggland's Best Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon whole milk
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 Slices egg bread
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped ham
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 Cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

For the Dad’s ‘Denver’ Egg Sandwiches

Whisk together the eggs and milk in a medium bowl.  Set aside.

Add about 1/2 tablespoon butter to a large sauté pan.  Heat to medium.  Add two slices of bread and heat until toasted.  Add another 1/2 tablespoon of butter, flip the bread and toast the other side.  Remove to a plate.  Repeat with the remaining two slices of bread.

Heat another tablespoon of butter in the pan.  Add the ham, bell pepper and onion, and sauté a couple of minutes- until softened.  Add the egg mixture and sprinkle cheese on top.  Sprinkle salt and pepper.  Let the eggs cook until lightly browned underneath.  Then take a rubber spatula and drag them around until cooked all the way through.  Remove from heat.

Assemble the sandwiches- divide the egg mixture between two slices of bread.  Add ketchup, if desired.  Top with the other piece of bread, slice in half and enjoy!
