The perfect lunchtime treat: a cross between a cheese and ham sandwich and eggy bread. Guaranteed to cheer you up!


  • 8 slices white bread with added fibre
  • A little butter for spreading
  • 4 slices of ham
  • 50g (2oz) Cheddar, sliced
  • 5 large Lion quality eggs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3tbsp oil for frying

You can replace the white bread with granary or wholemeal if you prefer.


  1. Spread the slices of bread on one side with a little butter, then make four ham and cheese sandwiches in the normal way. Beat the eggs with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Dip two sandwiches in the egg, letting it soak in a little.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, then add the sandwiches to the hot frying pan. Cook for 3 mins until the base is golden, then carefully turn over with a spatula. Cook for a further 3 mins or until golden on the base.
  3. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Repeat to make the remaining sandwiches in the same way. Serve cut in half with a few cherry tomatoes if liked.
