Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

8 slice
sourdough bread
8 oz
gruyere cheese, very thinly sliced
12 oz
smoked ham, very thinly sliced
2-3 Tbsp
mayonnaise
5 Tbsp
unsalted butter
4
extra large eggs
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2
Butter 1 side of each bread slice.
3
Set half of the slices of bread buttered side down in the griddle or cast iron skillet, and cover each with a slice of cheese. Place 3 or 4 slices of the ham over the cheese, and place the top slice of bread over the ham, buttered side up.
4
Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat. Cook sandwiches until bottom is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side. Remove sandwiches and place on a plate.
5
Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on the top of each sandwich, and then place a slice of cheese on top. Put the sandwiches back onto the griddle or skillet then place in oven, cooking until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
6
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over high heat. Cook each egg sunny side up. Turn egg over and cook 3 minutes longer for a soft-cooked egg, or 5 minutes longer for a hard-cooked egg. Repeat with remaining butter and eggs.
7
Place 1 fried egg atop each sandwich. Season egg, to taste, with salt and pepper. Serve sandwich immediately.
