Product Review: Breakfast Sandwich Maker by Hamilton Beach

Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker
For the first round we decided to use some leftover Christmas ham and make a classic egg, ham and cheese breakfast sandwich.  After removing the compact sandwich maker from the box the only set up is cleaning the removable part and the top and bottom plate of the sandwich maker.  In addition, we rubbed some olive oil over the whole inside.

How to use:
Plug in the cord and wait for the ready light to light up, indicating the unit is preheated.

**Always use an oven mitt to protect hands when opening the covers.  The entire unit gets hot and the steam can burn**

Once the ready light is lit up you can start assembling your sandwich.  It really is easy.

The bottom layer is your bread (we used an English muffin) your meat, cheese and veggies (we used ham & cheese.  He used sliced American and I used a shredded blend).  In the 2nd compartment we cracked a whole egg (breaking the yolk) and topped with the other half of our English muffin.  Close the lid, set the timer for 5 minutes and patiently wait.

Add your base layer ingredients
Put on bottom plate
Add a fresh egg, yolk broken
Top with English muffin
After the 5 minutes **REMEMBER TO USE YOUR OVEN MITTS** slide the middle cooking plate out and lift the lid revealing your hot and toasty breakfast sandwich.

5 minute breakfast sandwich complete
The sandwich came out crispy and everything was hot and melted.  The egg was entirely cooked to perfection.
Nice and toasty
The down sides are having to use a timer that you already have on hand, which is not a huge deal because most people have one, and the entire unit getting hot instead of just the inside.  But for a 5 minute breakfast sandwich it’s great.

4 out of 5 stars
