Lightfoot Family Layers’ Fried Egg Sandwich

Lightfoot Family Layers’ Fried Egg Sandwich

A tried and true recipe from our farmer, Zack.
According to Zack, "If you're going to eat a fried egg sandwich, you have to eat it right, which is the Amish way. With only one slice of bread. You spread butter or mayo on the bread; I like mayo best, and then fry an egg with some cheese and put it on top."
We cooked up Zack's Fried Egg Sandwich to test his single-slice theory. And we've gotta say, it certainly does not disappoint.
