Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Serves: 4

  • 8 slices Our Family® Artisan White Bread
  • ½ cup Our Family® Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon Our Family® Dijon Mustard
  • 8 slices Our Family® American Singles or Mild Cheddar Cheese
  • 8 thin slices deli ham
  • 4 Our Family® Large Eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon Our Family® Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Our Family® Ground Black Pepper
  • 1. Using a 3-inch round cutter or glass, cut circle from center of 4 bread slices; reserve circles for another use. In small bowl, stir ¼ cup butter and mustard; spread on 1 side of all bread slices.

    2. On cutting board, stack 1 slice cheese, 2 slices ham and 1 slice cheese; repeat with remaining cheese and ham slices to make 3 more stacks. Crack eggs into 4 small bowls.

    3. On griddle, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Place bread with circles, butter side up, on griddle; cook 1 minute or until lightly browned; reduce heat to medium. Add eggs to circles, and sprinkle with salt and pepper; cook 2 minutes or until bottoms of eggs are set. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to griddle; once melted, turn bread. Top bread with cheese stacks and remaining 4 bread slices, butter side up; cook 1 minute or until egg whites are set. Turn sandwiches; increase heat to medium-high and cook 1 minute or until bottoms are golden brown.

    Chef Tips
    Sandwiches can also be cooked in batches in a skillet.

    Use bread circles to make French toast, breadcrumbs, croutons or mini crustless sandwiches.
