    Ham And Cheese Breakfast Pockets


    for 4 servings

    8 slices white bread

    8 slices ham, cut into 2-in (5-cm) circles

    4 slices cheddar cheese, cut into 2 in (5-cm) circles

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    4 large eggs

    salt, to taste

    pepper, to taste

    fresh chives, for sprinkling


    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

    2. Lay out the bread on a work surface and use a glass or a rolling pin to flatten.

    3. Place a circle of ham in the middle of 4 slices of bread. Top with one circle of cheddar and another slice of ham.

    4. Place the remaining slices of bread on top and, using the lid of a mason jar or a cookie cutter, press down to create 4 pockets. Make sure the seams are closed, pinching to seal if necessary. Reserve the bread with the circle cut-outs.

    5. Place the pockets on a baking sheet.

    6. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter and garlic. Brush the pockets with garlic butter.

    7. Bake for 15 minutes, or until toasted.

    8. Place the reserved bread on a baking sheet and brush with the remaining garlic butter.

    9. Crack 1 egg into each circle, and season with salt and pepper.

    10. Bake for 5 minutes, or until the yolk is cooked to your preference.

    11. Serve the egg bread with the ham and cheese pockets and sprinkle with chives.

    12. Enjoy!
