Warm Country Bread with Apple, Ham and Gruyere (Fried Egg Optional)
Availability varies by market
Molson Canadian Cider
This is a fairly heavy dish by itself. The light and refreshing taste of Molson Canadian Cider will cut right through the richness, and of course match perfectly with the fresh apples on the sandwich.
- 4 thick slices of Country Bread
- 200g thinly sliced Gruyere
- 225g sliced ham
- 2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
- ¼ cup (60g) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 4 eggs
- Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Spread some butter on the slices of bread, and then top with apple slices, ham and Gruyere cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
- Repeat to make 4 open faced sandwiches and lay them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Toast in the oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese is melted and beginning to turn golden brown.
- While the sandwiches are toasting, melt some more butter into a non-stick pan over medium heat.
- Crack the eggs into in the butter and cook until the outer edges begin to turn opaque, then lower the heat and cover for 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- Remove the sandwiches from the oven and top with a fried egg and some freshly cracked black pepper.
