"The best ham sandwich?" you're asking. I know, it's a mighty big claim. But this ham sandwich has just about all you need in life. It has ham (ofcourse), tangy cheese, apples, and an egg. Because putting an egg on anything makes it better.
The sandwich is a lovely study in contrasts--salty ham meets tangy cheese meets sweet crisp apple, meets savory egg. Didja get all that? It's a great weekend lunch, and would be the perfect brunch sandwich. And while it would be great for lunch every day it is often hard to fry an egg at work. Though if you can swing that more power to you!
Our weekend was great. Dustin and I headed out to my mom and dad's to help them plant the garden. Dustin tilled, while Mom, Dad, and I planted. Magoo laid in the sun, and Boomer ran around like a crazy dog. And he rolled in the dirt--more than once. Picture him rolling with glee in the freshly tilled dirt, getting as much all over him as possible. I told him he was going to have to stay there. :)
On Sunday Dustin and I went to breakfast and then grill shopping. And we got one! I am so excited to grill this summer. We literally cleaned every grill-able thing out of the fridge last night for dinner. It was a random smorgasbord of delicious grilled things. I can't wait for more!
I also can't wait for more of this ham sandwich. I kind of want to make one as a snack right now. It's a great lunch that isn't too heavy but really fills you up. All the tastes combine to make a interesting and super delicious sandwich.
The Best Ham Sandwich with Apples and an Egg
author: Happy Food Happy Home
salt and pepper
4 crusty baguette pieces, sliced in half
1/2 pound thinly sliced deli ham
4 slices sharp cheese
1 apple, thinly sliced
- Fry the eggs to your desired done-ness--over-medium was perfect for me. Top with salt, pepper, and paprika to taste as they're frying.
- Schmear Dijon mustard on the bottom baguette halves.
- Top with ham, then the apples. You want the apples to be as thin as you can get them.
- Add the cheese on top of the apples, then put an egg on top of each sandwich.
- Top with the baguette tops and serve!
What's your favorite sandwich? Have you caught the 'put an egg on it' bug? It's kind of my new favorite thing to do!
