    A yummy twist on the old fashioned toasted cheese sandwich. My aunt used to make these for me for lunch when I spent the summers with her.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 1 

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

    Directions
    Preparation: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 frypan 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 frypan. 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  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    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  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Awesome! Thanks to Aunt Bev! The only thing I changed, because it didn't need any change is the Swiss, I changed it to baby swiss which is milder. Thank you for this wonderful recipe, I wish I thought of myself! 5 stars! P.S. My 3 (ages 5-12) very picky Grandchildren, that don't even like grilled cheese, LOVED IT!  -  23 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
