This is an EASY variant of Eggs Benedict or Croque Monsieur - depending on your perspective! We love Eggs Benny, and Croque Monsieur but we wanted something quicker and easier but equally tasty for a nice lunch at home, so we came up with this recipe :)

Directions

  1. Sauce: Melt 2-3 tablespoons of margarine over medium heat.
  2. Add flour & cook for 1 minute while constantly stirring with a whisk (or chopsticks:).
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add soy milk & whisk until smooth.
  5. Beat in egg yolk & return to heat to cook for another minute.
  6. Stir in cheese, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, nutmeg and 1/2 tablespoon Dijon until cheese melts.
  7. Set heat to the lowest setting & cover while you do the next steps.
  8. Eggs: Melt a knob of margarine in a medium non-stick skillet over medium to medium-low heat.
  9. When the margarine's foam begins to subside, add the eggs (do not whisk)
  10. Let eggs set a little, then *fold* (do not stir)the eggs.
  11. season with salt & pepper to taste.
  12. fold eggs again one or two more times, and when they look *almost* done for you, remove from heat & cover while you prepare the next step (they will continue cooking in the hot pan & be just right by the time you are ready to use them)
  13. Sandwich: Split open each bread piece
  14. Toast the bread on a grill pan until golden or broil the bread cut side up until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes, keeping a careful watch on the bread since it can easily burn
  15. lightly brush desired amounts of margarine & mustard on the cut sides of the toasted bread
  16. Arrange a slice of prosciutto (and extra cheese if you like) with some scrambled egg on each piece of toasted bread
  17. Cover with sauce.
  18. Serve hot garnished with chopped basil.
