Ingredients 16
Servings 4
Time 00:15


  • Cheese filling:
  • 1
    tub cream cheese
  • 1/4
    grated gruyere cheese
  • 1
    spring onion - finely chopped
  • small handful of chives - chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • egg mixture:
  • 6
  • 60
  • 3
    chopped chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4
    slices gypsy ham
  • 8
    slices of ciabatta or sour dough
  • 5
  • 15
    cooking oil
  • fresh rocket - for garnish


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.
