The Ultimate Ham and Cheese Sandwich

24 Feb

This is by far, one of my fave breakfast items, that you can just whip up before going to work. And if you happen to have a Happycall DoublePan, all the more you should prepare this breakfast as it will take a lesser time to get The Ultimate Ham and Cheese Sandwiches ready 🙂


  • 2 tablespoons butter + 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • A dash of nutmeg
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 slices white bread
  • 12 to 16 slices turkey/chicken ham
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs


Place a medium-size pot over medium heat and melt the butter. Sprinkle the flour over the melted butter and cook for about 1 minute. Slowly whisk the milk and Dijon mustard into the butter-flour mixture. Season it with nutmeg, salt and ground black pepper. Cook until it thickens up.

Place four slices of bread on the counter. Spread some of the sauce onto each slice of bread, then lay down some turkey/chicken ham, a slice of cheese, another smear of sauce and top each sandwich with the remaining bread slices.

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and melt the remaining tablespoon of butter. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Dip the sandwiches in the egg and transfer them to the hot pan. Cook until golden brown, 3 – 4 minutes per side.
