Saturday, Simply from Scratch--Hearty Open Faced Sandwiches

The following recipe is a quicky! This is the kind of thing I whip up when I want something quick after work, or something warm and simple after an outdoor hike. Serve with soup or eggs and bacon for a meal, or by themselves for a snack.

From Scratch -- The photos


  • 4 slices thick bread (from scratch)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups grated cheese
  • 1-2 tsp whole grain brown mustard, horseradish sauce, etc.
  • freshly ground black pepper

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Butter the bottom of the bread and line in a baking dish.
  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl.
  • Add the shredded cheese and stir well.
  • Add the mustard and black pepper and combine.
  • Spread the egg and cheese mixture evenly on top of the bread slices.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes--the cheese should puff up. These are the best cheese sandwiches ever!

Place a layer of ham or other lunch meat on the bread before spreading the cheese mixture on top, to make a more substantial sandwich.
