Method

00:15
 
Mix the cheese filling ingredients together until well combined. Season to taste.

Generously spread the filling onto the slices of ciabatta and place a slice of ham on 4 slices. Press them together to make 4 ham and cheese sandwiches.

Beat the eggs, milk and chives together and season. Add the butter and oil to the pan and heat until bubbling.

Dip 2 sandwiches in the egg mixture (allow them to absorb lots of egg) and fry over moderate heat until golden on each side (about 45 seconds a side) and the filling begins to melt. Remove and place on paper towel and fry the rest.

Keep the others warm by placing in a warmer drawer or a low oven. Serve hot and garnish with some rocket.
