    A delish way to get rid of a couple eggs and eat your chicken too!

    1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. butter separated
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/3 cup flour
    3 cups milk, heated
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper *optional*
    4-6 oz American cheese
    2 eggs well beaten
    1 tbsp. butter (additional)
    8 strips bacon
    8 slices wheat bread toasted
    2 chicken breasts cooked and sliced
    Parmesan cheese

    Melt 1/3 cup butter in saucepan and add onion. Cook until transparent. Add flour and blend until smooth. Add milk, salt, and red pepper. Stir and cook until mixture is thick and smooth. Stir in cheese, eggs, and 1 tablespoon butter.
    Continue to cook, stirring until mixture almost reaches boiling. Remove sauce from heat.
    Fry bacon slices until crisp.

    To Assemble:
    1. Toast 8 slices of wheat bread.
    2. Cut 4 in half diagonally.
