Ham & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich on Toasted Gruyere-Basil French Bread

Perhaps I needed some protein … perhaps I was pulled into the thought of him having eggs and bacon for dinner the other night … perhaps my gruyere-basil french bread was just aching to be a beautiful sandwich … in any case, yesterday I was compelled to make myself a breakfast sandwich.

This is not really a recipe, is it? Ah well, I will tell you anyway …

Ham & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich on Toasted French Bread

  • French Bread
  • 1 egg
  • Extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • Lean ham slices

Directions:

  1. Slice off a hunk of your french bread and then slice horizontally.
  2. Beat 1 egg with a tablespoon of water, sprinkle with Red Robin seasoning and pepper, cook in a frying pan coated with cooking spray, folding over the edges to make a rectangular shape that fits your bread.
  3. Take the bottom half of the french bread and carefully place the egg on the bread … then top with slices of extra sharp cheddar cheese. Place it in the toaster oven (or oven) to broil for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.
  4. While the cheese is melting, toast the top half of the bread along with slices of  lean ham in the hot frying pan.
  5. Remove the cheesy bottom half of the sandwich and top with the ham and top half of the bread. And enjoy …
