  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Fry hash brown square and onion slices in butter until hash brown is cooked through and onion is softened, flipping hash brown halfway, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Toast bread in a toaster; butter both sides with 1 tablespoon butter and place on a plate. Place cooked hash brown and onions on 1 slice of toast. Top with Cheddar cheese.
  3. Heat remaining tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Fry egg until white is nearly set and yolk is still runny, about 2 minutes. Gently flip and cook for an additional 15 to 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place over-easy egg on top of Cheddar cheese. Top with remaining slice of toast to form a sandwich. Slice to allow yolk to penetrate sandwich and serve.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use any cheese you'd like.
