Emeril's Favorite Fried Egg Sandwich

Yield:
1 serving
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 slices white bread
  • 1 slice ham
  • 1 large egg
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch ground black pepper
  • Optional ingredients of your choice
Directions
  • Spread 1/2 tablespoon of the butter on 1 side of each slice of bread (3/4 teaspoon butter per slice).

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the buttered slices, buttered side down. Push the bread to the side of the pan and add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter to the other side. Add the ham and egg to the buttered side of the pan, and season the egg lightly with salt and pepper. Using a spatula, pierce the egg yolk so that it runs. Cook until the egg begins to firm and the ham browns, about 30 seconds.

  • Using the spatula, flip both the ham and the egg and cook for 30 seconds. Stack the ham and egg on 1 unbuttered side of the toast and top with the other slice, buttered side up.

  • Place the egg sandwich on a plate. If desired, top with grated cheese or other toppings, and serve immediately.
