Dutch Uitsmijter: Fried Ham and Eggs With Mustard Cheese
Typical Dutch breakfast/brunch/lunch. You can substitute fried slices of chorizo instead of ham if you like and cover the bread with slices of non-crumbly goats cheese. If you don't have mustard cheese on hand, no problem, just add a bit of whole grain mustard to the mix while cooking!
