Farmhouse Breakfast Sandwich
If you follow our blog, you already know I am on a mission to bring back breakfast to my family’s routine. Busy schedules have taken away the most important meal of our day. Frankly, not sure why. Somewhere along the way, we got it in our heads that we didn’t have time.
“We’ll grab something later”, we said.
Wrong. We skipped it. We got up; got dressed; grabbed the books, bags and backpacks; ran out the door without a moment to spare; and jumped into our day head first on an empty stomach. We didn’t grab anything later and by the time lunch rolled around, we found ourselves starving, running on empty, and eating junk.
The Farmhouse Breakfast Sandwich is a new beginning. We’ve made a yummy breakfast sandwich that is impossible to resist, no matter the rush. And we made it as homemade as possible with Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse® Butter Bread.
Soft, rich, buttery, and wholesome, Farmhouse® Butter Bread tastes like it is fresh from the oven and is the perfect choice for our breakfast sandwiches.
This slow baked bread is the perfect size and thickness for cinnamon toast, too. (Extra butter, please.) And don’t get me started on the French toast. Think wholesome breakfast, lunch, and dinner when it comes to this soft bread.

To make the best Breakfast Sandwich ever…
Each package of Farmhouse Butter Bread will make 6 full-sized sandwiches. For this morning, we needed 3 sandwiches. Arrange the slices of bread on a baking sheet. Very lightly spread soft butter on both sides. This will help the bread brown evenly and be all toasty.
If you love your bread soft, you can skip this step. But I love lightly toasted bread for this sandwich idea. It turns a farmhouse breakfast of toast, ham, and egg into a portable sammie.
If you are making just one sandwich or are in a hurry, you can skip the buttering and use a toaster. To save some time, I simply preheated my oven when I got up. That way I could work on all three sandwiches at once. Plus…there’s cheddar involved.
On half of the bread slices, layer sharp cheddar on top.This reminds me so much of the cheese toasts that I adored when I was a kid. Thick, homestyle bread with melted cheese…best thing ever, right?
While the bread and cheese are toasting in the oven, quickly heat slices of ham in a skillet. We used a cured, pre-cooked ham that was pre-sliced. This keeps it easy for busy mornings and is the perfect size for the bread.
How many slices do you want on your Farmhouse Breakfast Sandwich? Me? I’ll take three.
You could totally stop here if you want. With the golden-toasted bread, melty cheddar and sweet-salty ham, you’ve got yourself one heck of a Hot Ham + Cheese Sandwich.
But I promised you ripe tomatoes and fried eggs!
How will you make your Farmhouse Breakfast Sandwich?
Top the cheese and ham with fresh tomato slices and eggs made to order. In my family, everyone has their own preference. From over easy to soft scrambled, it is easy to crack an egg, cook to order, and slide it right on top of the sandwich.
Me? I went for the sunny side.
If this Farmhouse Breakfast Sandwich doesn’t make you want to eat breakfast, then we need to talk. Every bite is so comforting, so…simple, but so delicious. The bread is lightly crisp on the edges then soft in the center, the golden egg yolk drips over the tomato, ham and cheese.
I’m in love, ya’ll. In love with a sandwich.
