Make This Recipe


  • 3 Eggland's Best eggs (large)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons whole milk
  • about 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 slices egg bread
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped ham
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • ketchup, optional


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!
