Cooking Time: 5 + 10 min | Easy | 2 Servings


• 2 tbsp butter

• 4 eggs

• salt and pepper

• 28 g smoked deli ham

• 55 g (120 ml) cheddar cheese or provolone cheese or edam cheese, cut in thick slices

• a few drops of tabasco or Worcestershire sauce (optional)


1. Add butter to a large frying pan and place it over medium heat. Add the eggs and fry them over easy, on both sides. Salt and pepper to taste.

2. Use a fried egg as the base for each “sandwich”. Place the ham/pastrami/cold cuts on each stack next, and then add the cheese. Top off each stack with a fried egg. Leave in the pan, on low heat, if you want the cheese to melt.

3. Sprinkle a few drops of Tabasco or Worcestershire sauce if you want, and serve immediately.


Unsweetened French Dijon mustard is a perfect match with the ham. Plus, you can replace the ham with crispy-fried bacon or skip the meat altogether. This sandwich is great paired with a green salad or diced avocado!

If you STILL can’t imagine sandwiches without bread, we suggest you make a batch of Oopsies and keep them in the freezer. They don’t take long to thaw. If you add an Oopsie to the sandwich, you’ll have a very filling meal, indeed!
