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

  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet 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.

  • Carefully and quickly, dip each side in the beaten egg, and place in the hot buttered skillet. Cook until golden brown on the bottom, then melt the remaining butter in the skillet. 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. Read More

These were okay. They cooked beautifully and the egg didn't lend any flavor which I was worried about. Maybe with a different cheese to give it more of a pop it would be better. I might try them again with cheddar but as was I found them kind of blah. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

These are really great sandwiches! Thanks for the post! However they aren't for someone on a diet! I didn't have any Italian bread so I just used white bread & added a touch of oregano to the egg mixture. I used spicy brown mustard instead of Dijon mustard because I didn't have any & I cut it down to only 1 tsp. Read More

This is a great sandwich. Very filling. I used whole grain white instead of the Italian since I didn't have that on hand. Wow filling! Read More

I noticed this as I was doing the photo voting and thought it sounded really good for lunch therefore I made it right away. I loved the flavor of this recipe. I don't know if the egg wash is absolutely necessary and I may omit it next time just to see the difference. I will be making this again often for my lunch. It was a nice way of doing something different with my usual ham and cheese sandwich. Read More
