Fried Egg Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The Fourth of July was a bust at our house.  On the third, I went to our town’s annual block party.  It was rainy and chilly during the block party.  Even though I wore jeans and a pullover, I ended up with a fever, cough, and a headache.  I was suppose to be in our Fourth of July parade but opted not to go.  The Wee One decided he didn’t want to walk in the parade if I wasn’t there.  The Imaginative One did walk in the parade because one of his friends came and got him.

Luckily I had planned out the Fourth of July dinner.  I had made sloppy Joes a few weeks prior and then froze family sized portions of the sloppy Joes.  I was able to pull out one of the bags of the sloppy Joes so that my mother-in-law was able to warm up the dish.  We had also got corn on the cob.  The boys shucked the corn.  My mother-in-law cooked up the corn.  Hubby, the Wee One, and the Imaginative One ate over at her house.  I ate my dinner at home.

Since I was sick, we ended up watching a livestream of the fireworks from Walt Disney World.  Such a great show.

This sandwich on the other hand is not a bust.  It’s delicious.  Pure comfort food.  When the yolk breaks over the cheese, ham, and bread, it’s food heaven.  Yum!

This sandwich would be great for either a weekend brunch or for breakfast for dinner.
