This ham and egg sandwich is so easy to make and a great recipe for extra holiday ham. Buttery toast is the base for all the yumminess. Savory ham is topped with a poached egg. The best part is blanketing the sandwich with your favorite shredded cheese and melting it. It's just so good and simple! The Test Kitchen
