Ingredients

2 servingservings
USMetric
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons butter
  • 16 oz. 30 g smoked deli ham
  • 2 oz. 60 g cheddar cheese or provolone cheese or edam cheese, cut in thick slices
  • salt and pepper
  • a few drops of tabasco or Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Fry the eggs over easy (on both sides) on medium heat. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Use a fried egg as a base for each 'sandwich.' Place the ham/pastrami/cold cuts on each stack next, and then add the cheese. Top off each stack with a fried egg.
  3. Sprinkle a few drops of Tabasco or Worcestershire sauce if you’re in the mood, and serve immediately.

Tip

Unsweetened French Dijon mustard is a perfect match with the ham. Plus, you can replace the ham with crispy-fried bacon or skip the meat altogether. This sandwich is great paired with a green salad or diced avocado!

If you STILL can’t imagine sandwiches without bread, we suggest you make a batch of Oopsies and keep them in the freezer. They don’t take long to thaw. If you add an Oopsie to the sandwich, you’ll have a very filling meal, indeed!

    Yes, it's not very clear what you're supposed to do. The cheese looks melted in the picture, but the recipe doesn't tell you to cook it - it seems to describe unheated cheese and meat sandwiched between cooked eggs, which is hardly what I'd call a sandwich.

    Directions seem straight forward to me

    just leave the cheese in the pan on top of the eggs long enough to melt it, then top with the other fried eggs. easy peasy. grate the cheese if you want it to melt faster ?

    I also put my ham in the left over butter in my pan, heated it up to give it a crisp, then put my cheese on it to melt
