What a delicious way to start your day! This super easy and quick fried egg, cheese and ham sandwich comes together in less than seven minutes making it a great breakfast for any morning!
Fry the egg
Add two tablespoons of butter to a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. When the pan is hot and the butter foamy, crack the egg into the pan.
Cook the eggs until the whites are cooked and it is still somewhat runny in the yolk (or not runny at all if that's what you prefer), and remove the egg from the pan to a plate and set aside.
Add another pat of butter to the same skillet and add your ham slice. Fry until lightly browned and warmed through. Remove from skillet and set aside with your fried egg.
Next, Spread some butter on one side of each slice of your bread. Place the slice buttered side down in the same skillet you fried your ham and egg. Fry the one side of the bread until golden brown.
While in the skillet, add your ham and then top it with your fried egg. If you want cheese, now is the time to add it. Next lay your second slice of buttered bread on top of the ham and egg, being careful not to push down on it if you want to keep the yolk runny.
Once the bread is brown on the other side, remove and serve.
Use good quality bread. It really does make a difference.
Butter makes the bread brown so nicely and adds fabulous flavor. You can use salted or unsalted butter.
If you like your eggs runny don’t push down on the sandwich. It will all come together as everything melts and browns.
Fry the ham slice until a little crispy on the edges, makes
it even better!
