Still suffering from this here pandemic, and not having any junk food vendors to quench my cravings, I decided to make Jack In the Box Breakfast Jack's, gourmet style. It is basically a Daycare Hot Ham & Cheese but grilled and with an egg.
I liked, this may seem like a HH&C with the simple addition of a fried egg, but let me assure you it is not. In fact, it is a lot more work than a HH&C with completely different cooking instructions.
Heavily butter and grill the buns on a skillet.
One slice of American cheese, set aside to warm to room temp.
With buns grilling to a nice and dark coloring, warm the two to four slices of ham lunch meat in the microwave. Remove meat and pat dry excess moisture. Set aside.
To a second skillet, fry an egg to desired level of cook. Set aside.
With buns cooked to a nice golden brown or darker (if like me) assemble sandwich: ham, cheese, egg.
Scaled for Likability: Great
When cooking the egg, do not season with salt as the meat is salty enough. If looking for a touch of heat, add black pepper, tabasco sauce, or even cooked jalapenos. I prefer mild or medium cheddar cheese to American slice cheese for breakfast sandwiches. American cheese does not hold up well to the egg and becomes a gooey, almost watery mess when eating. The only thing missing from these gourmet style Jack in the Box breakfast sandwiches were curly fries and a soda. Delish.
