Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 1 oz. 30 g smoked deli ham
  • 2 oz. 50 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. Add butter to a frying pan and place it over medium heat. Add the eggs and fry them over easy (on both sides). Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Use a fried egg as the 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. Leave in the pan, on low heat, if you want the cheese to melt.
  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 ?

    Hi Alicia!

    If you choose "Ketogenic Low Carb" then it should not be a problem.

    Can I switch out any meals on the get started plan or will it throw off weight loss?

    Hi Amy!

    Ham is 1/2 ounce, approx 15 gram per serving.

    1/6 of an ounce??? 4.6 grams. Is that like waving the ham over the top?

    Do you mean to cook the egg as an omelette ? If that's the case i can fold it in half after putting the cheese and ham (or deli turkey)
