Strammer Max - German Warm Sandwich

Strammer Max means stiff or tight Max which is Saxon slang and means exactly what you think it means. Traditionally it's a butter fried slice of bread with ham and a fried egg. My MIL uses to make this version every time she wants to make a quick dinner.Made for FYC tag game! Had this for breakfast for dinner tonight. Used the bacon grease to fry the eggs in. Enjoyed with shredded hash browns. Very delicious open-faced sandwich. We really enjoyed this tonight. Thanks for sharing!Made for the FYC Tag Game, breakfast is my DH's favorite meal & this this exact recipe is his favorite choice from all the options. I basted the eggs so all the white was cooked, but the yolk stayed intact ,,, used Gouda for the cheese ... & was liberal w/the pepper grinder. When I really want to spoil him, fried potatoes & fruit accompany this breakfast. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us.If you have bacon and eggs in the same recipe, of course you have to fry the eggs in the bacon grease. That is what I did, which added just a little more flavor to an already delicious sandwich. I fried one slice thick cut bacon. Made for - More Than Sauerkraut And Dumplings 2012
