    Delicious! I used homemade bread and kept the crusts and ate it with tomato soup. Perfect comfort food.

    It turned out okay. I over-soaked the sandwich in the egg mixture so it wad very soggy, so try to avoid soaking for too long. With a few tweaks, I think this recipe has potential. I would add some brown sugar to the egg mixture for a little sweetness and also use a lighter cheese.

    I expected the bread to be more toasted, but it was still good.

    Paprika amount was definitely not correct. I decreased the amount. I liked the sandwich but my teenagers didn't really like it.

    Very tasty. It tasted like breakfast. I told my family this will be the new breakfast for dinner. The only thing that needs to be changed is the paprika. The bowl in your picture on the website looked nothing like mine when I put 3 teaspoons in so use 1 teaspoon instead of 3 for the paprika.
