Summer is finally here! On this lazy sunday I decided to try and make something new up for our breakfast since Rock is busy being completely absorbed in a science fiction novel. I looove grilled cheese sandwiches (especially those that are made with Kraft singles and disturbing amounts of butter; I blame my wonderful processed foods-filled childhood ) so I thought I’d make up a more breakfast-y version of a grilled cheese.
for 1 sandwich you’ll need: 2 slices of whole wheat bread / 1 large egg / 1 slice honey ham / baby spinach / butter / shredded cheese (of course!) – any type of cheese you like. today I used extra old cheddar
This hardly really needs instructions but I’ll give them to you anyway! In a large pan over medium heat, cook your egg over easy and just give your ham a bit of a grill then plop them aside on a plate. Next up, just assemble your sandwich. A bottom slice of bread, a layer of shredded cheese, then the egg, ham, a little handful of spinach, and then more cheese to top it off and the top layer of bread. Melt a generous pat of butter in the pan and grill up the first side of the sandwich. If it’s browning too quickly just turn down the heat a bit so the cheese will all melt. Using a spatula, pick up the sandwich, melt more butter in the pan and then grill the other side. Rock said it was a very tasty sandwich and gobbled up his in like 2 minutes.
