This hot ham and cheese sandwich is dipped in egg and hot pepper sauce, then pan fried. Great brunch idea for teenagers, and you could experiment with different fillings.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 slices sandwich bread
- 6 slices cooked ham
- 3 ounces Cheddar cheese, sliced
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a wide, shallow dish.
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.
Heat the oil in a griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Cook sandwiches 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cheese has melted. Serve hot.
