Ham, Cheese and the Perfect Poached Egg Sandwich

Nuvita Biscuits

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the very best.

When making a poached egg for a sandwich you want to cook it just a bit longer so that when you take a bit the whole thing doesn’t burst all over you. I will give you the instructions for a perfect poached egg for a sandwich or otherwise. It is all in the technique.


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 slice of good quality ham
  • 1 slice mozzarella or swiss
  • English muffin
  • butter
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the English muffin in the toaster and lightly toast. Place the slice of cheese on the English muffin and let it start to melt. You can encourage it to melt more by sliding it under the broiler for a few seconds. Place the ham on top. Keep warm.
  2. Crack an egg into a small bowl. Bring a small pot of water with the vinegar up to a simmer. Do not bring to a boil. With a spoon spin the water in the center of the pot to create a whirlpool and very carefully drop the egg into the center of the whirlpool. It will look like a mess but it will come back together. Simmer the egg, never boil for 3-4 min. depending on desired doneness. Go to the 4 min. mark for a sandwich such as shown here or closer to the 3 min. mark if just serving on toast. Salt and pepper and place on top of the ham.

    So I have left over hops in my refrigerator. I am really interested in eating it in some form. If anyone knows of any recipes or places to get recipes, this would be appreciated greatly.

    It has to be for my daughters lunch for some reason she now wants bagels? I don’t want to give her a dry bagel or they’ll send the child welfare on me rightly so!
