"My siblings and I always called this the Minnesota Special. I have no idea where that name came from. This is a very easy sandwich to make and I will admit, I enjoy it more often than I should. (It's my favorite sandwich) Feel free to add a slice of onion or tomato, both are good on this! "

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This is a sandwich I have made for many years. I usually make it on fresh umtoasted bread with no butter. Great taste as the crispy potatoes bring it to the next level. Salt & pepper are a required ingredient. Dissie thank you for posting an all time favorite.
