Three magical words – Breakfast in pan or breakfast in a pan. (if you like to follow grammar or math 4 words)

This is without a doubt my all-time favorite Sunday breakfast treat. My family called it One Pan Lazy Sunday Simple Sandwich.

When I first started making this breakfast as a kid I would add too much cheese…BTW, is there too much cheese.

According to my family … never mind. Who cares?

Also, when I said Sunday I forgot to mention that I like to make this recipe on Friday too.

It is nice when you wake up, the birds are singing, the air is fresh, clean and the most important meal of the day is in the fridge … waiting to be baked. On top of that you don’t need to go to work. Life is perfect. That’s why I always make this recipe on Friday or Saturday night.

Above all what better way to start the day than with an amazing breakfast.

Make egg mixture.

First layer of bread + 1/3 of egg mixtures

Slices of cheese and ham

garlic or onion

Slices of cheese and ham

Bake at 350 F for 60 minutes.

Enjoy and share.

ABOUT INGREDIENTS

Do you want to KNOW or see how much ham did I use? Or what kind of cheese did I use?

Important: I try to use as little as possible ham so for this recipe. (I like more cheese). So, I used 1/2 pound or 200 gr. If you like ham and you are not on diet use more.

Check the pictures below:

Now, the next question is what kind of bread or yogurt? I will repeat again, use the bread you like.
