This is the perfect quick snack or light lunch fix. Ham and Cheddar sandwiches are dipped in spicy egg mixture and pan fried.


Serves: 2 

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices white or brown bread
  • 6 slices cooked ham
  • 75g Cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:6min  ›  Ready in:16min 

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a wide, shallow dish.
  2. Layer 2 slices bread with equal amounts of the sliced ham and cheese; top with remaining bread slices to make sandwiches and press down to secure filling. Dip sandwiches into egg mixture and turn to coat both sides.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook sandwiches 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cheese has melted. Serve hot.

Something else. I never manage to cook egg-dipped sandwiches all the way through without burning them, so I made this slightly differently: I dipped the bread in egg, cooked one side in the frypan, removed them and made the sandwich, then returned it to the frypan with the cooked sides facing inwards. Worked out perfectly. Thanks! - 29 Sep 2008

Great concept! However, I was not fond of the Worcestershire flavor. Make sure to cook over low heat so it heats through and melts the cheese without burning the bread. - 29 Sep 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. For sodium content I reduced the amount of ham by half, and also reduced the amount of cheese. - 29 Sep 2008
