  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Crack egg into the skillet and cook until egg is white on the bottom layer and is firm enough to flip, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip egg, trying not to crack the yolk. Place Cheddar cheese on top of egg and cook until cheese is melted and egg is cooked to desired doneness, 2 to 5 minutes.
  2. Spread mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup into both bread slices and season with Cajun seasoning and hot pepper sauce. Add lettuce and tomato to 1 bread slice; top with egg-cheese. Sprinkle more Cajun seasoning on egg. Pour any remaining butter from skillet over egg and top with second piece of bread, creating a sandwich.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Any type of cheese can be used in place of the Cheddar cheese.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.
