Two lovely and satisfying lunch dishes.
Ingredients
Tosti
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 slice of cooked ham
  • a few slices of cheese
  • a knob of butter
Uitsmijter
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 slice of cooked ham
  • 1 slice of cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • knob of butter
Instructions
Tosti
  1. Heat a non-stick frying pan on low heat.
  2. Take one slice of bread, layer thinly with cheese, place the slice of ham on top and cover with another layer of cheese. By sandwiching the ham between cheese, the whole tosti will stick together better. Top of with the second slice of bread.
  3. Melt half of the butter in the frying pan. Place the sandwich on top. Fry on low heat until brown and crisp.
  4. Flip over the tosti, place the other half of the butter under it and fry on low heat until this side is also brown and crisp.
  5. Serve immediately.
Uitsmijter
  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan on low heat.
  2. Break the eggs into the pan, season with salt and pepper and fry on low heat until the white is cooked and the yolk is still runny.
  3. Meanwhile, layer the ham on one slice of bread and the cheese on the other.
  4. Place the eggs on top of the bread. Serve immediately.
Notes
Different kinds of bread can be used (whole-grain, white, sandwich, artisan). Just use the kind you like or which you have available. I use Dutch gouda cheese for both recipes. You can substitute this with another semi-hard cheese with good melting properties and a mild flavor profile. Instead of ham, other cold cuts or fried slices of bacon can be used. Additional herbs and spices can be used to season the eggs. I like to use paprika powder and garlic powder, or a Proven├žal herb mix.
