It’s almost September! Yipee!  You see, I’m a Fall girl so I love everything about these next upcoming months.  But with Fall, comes early mornings.  Maybe it’s back to work (or maybe it’s regular go to work), getting your kids on the bus, making your loved one a on the go sandwich, or throwing together a quick dinner sandwich after basketball practice.  This Maple Syrup Ham, Egg and Cheese Sandwich is crazy good, will fill you up and the best part, it’s made in seconds.  I’m serious.  You can literally have this made in under 90 seconds.  Time yourself, it will be fun! Plus you’ll get your daily exercise in.  See, it’s a win win situation!

The sandwich is based on a popular fastfood sandwich, but homemade so you know what’s going into it and you can use the finest ingredients.  It hits the spot of being savory (ham, egg, cheese) but with a touch of sweetness (maple syrup).   You can serve it up for breakfast, pack it for lunch (just put the syrup on the ide) or make for dinner.  I’m a fan of breakfast for dinner, so make these up and serve with some greens on the side and you’re set.

Let’s start with the ingredients.  First, let me introduce you to my hero,  Smithfield Anytime Favorites Hickory Smoked Quarter Boneless Sliced Ham.  You guys this is delicous ham and it’s sliced.  Like you don’t have to cut it, the work is done for you!  I’m sorry but these small advancements in ham technology really amaze me.   Smithfield Anytime Favorites come in lots of different cuts that I love to use in recipes – from sliced, diced, cubed and steaked and come in a few flavors.  I love using the diced ham in potato soup in the Winter!  Gosh I can’t wait for Winter too…

Once again, let’s cheer this ham for being sliced.  Sorry, it will always excite me.  I’m going to be making 4 sandwiches so I’ll use 4 slices of ham.  If you’re going to make a solo sandwich just use one.  By the way, these sandwiches freeze great if you want to make some to stock up for extra busy mornings.  Just don’t put the syrup on them when freezing!

Next, some goodlooking quality bread.  I used sourdough because it’s delicious.

You’ll need one egg per sandwich.

And now my amazing egg trick.  I do this all the time.  Crack a egg in a microwave safe mug.

Give it a good mix with a fork.

Now throw it in the microwave for 1 minute.  Boom, Boom, Boom the egg is done!

Now start arranging this beautiful, delicious sandwich.
Bread, ham and egg first.  I usually cut the egg in half so it takes up the entire bread length.

Throw a slice of cheese on top.

Now throw it in the microwave for 20 seconds.  This is enough time to melt the cheese and cook the ham.

Throw your other slice of bread on top.

And give it a little push down action.
