  • Heat ham slices on griddle for 1 minute on each side.
  • Crack eggs onto skillet or griddle and cook to sunny side up (can do more if desired).
  • Heat broiler to high. Place toast slices on baking sheet, then add ham slices, then pour sauce over the top. Sprinkle the remaining gruyere over sacue.
  • Broil for about 1-2 minutes until sauce is bubbling and cheese browns slightly.
