IngredientsServes: 1

  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 thin slices ham
  • 2 slices Gruyere cheese

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:5min ›Ready in:15min

  1. In a shallow dish that will be large enough to dip your sandwich in, whisk the egg with some salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Spread the mayonnaise and mustard onto one slice of bread. On the other slice, layer the ham and cheese. Place the slices together to enclose the ingredients.
  3. Carefully and quickly, dip each side in the beaten egg, and place in the hot buttered pan. Cook until golden brown on the bottom, then melt the remaining butter in the pan. Flip the sandwich, and cook until browned on the other side.

Great sandwich! It was a nice nice from regular grilled cheese. The only thing I did different was to thin the egg mixture out with a bit of milk and to use light mayo and light Swiss cheese. Other than that it was perfect with tomato soup.-14 Aug 2010

These were great, we did sub the swiss for provolone and havarti cheese. Thanks for the post. I wanted to update this review 08/21/06 only because we tried this for breakfast and used cheddar and american cheese with the ham. I used the texas toast bread, and added hard eggs to the sandwich. My husband preferred his open faced with the ham, cheese then an egg over easy to top his off. Yummy Yummy Yummy.-28 Jul 2006
