Ham and Egg Sandwich http://ladonnarose.com/ham-egg-sandwich/ Mon, 04 Jun 2018 13:00:59 +0000 http://ladonnarose.ivykitten.com/?p=1282 While writing this cookbook, I have been thinking about all the delicious treats I’ve had on my trips out of Alaska. It got me to thinking about the foods that I crave from those travels, which got me to thinking about a trip Ole and I took to Old San Juan. Walking by a bakery, I laid my eyes on a flaky pastry dusted in confectioner’s sugar. I had to have one. Fluffy, buttery, slightly sweet and oh so good! I then learned that you could halve them and stuff each roll with ham, a fried egg and cheese making this Ham and Egg Sandwich a sweet and savory treat. I learned to make them and found that this is the sort of recipe that can come together in the evening while watching your favorite show. They will keep well over night and in the morning, you can treat your family to freshly baked sweet rolls.

Ingredients

1 package Rapid Rise yeast (2¼ tsp.)
½ cup 2% milk
1 cup butter (2 sticks) melted, plus more for greasing
3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
¼ cup granulated sugar
2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
6 eggs
18 slices deli ham
6 slices cheddar cheese
confectioner’s sugar, for dusting

Directions

make the rolls:
In a bowl combine yeast and ¼ cup water heated to 120 degrees. Let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in milk, 4 tablespoons butter and egg yolks until smooth. Add sugar, flour and salt; stir until dough forms. Transfer to a lightly floured work surface; knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Transfer dough to a floured work surface and using a rolling pin, roll into a 18 x 12-inch rectangle. Brush with 2 tablespoons butter; starting at one short end, roll into a cylinder. Cut into 6 equal pieces; transfer, cut side-down, to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let cool.

make the sandwiches:
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add 3 eggs, cook and flip until the yolk is just set. Repeat with 2 tablespoons butter and remaining eggs. Split each roll; place 3 slices ham onto each roll bottom. Top with an egg, a slice of cheddar and roll tops. Return skillet to medium-high heat; add 2 tablespoons butter. Add two sandwiches; cook flipping and flattening with a spatula, until browned, about 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining butter and sandwiches. Dust with confectioner’s sugar while hot before serving.
