"Fried" Egg With Ham And Cheese On Rye

"Fried" Egg With Ham
And Cheese On Rye



This Egg with Ham and Cheese on Rye is a very filling breakfast (or lunch) due to the egg, ham, and cheese's protein. There's nothing quite like the taste of a fried egg.

See how I made this "fried" egg without all the fried-egg mess in the photo gallery.

You can make this dish in about THREE minutes!  Simply follow this recipe from finally-KETO!

"Fried" Egg with
Ham and Cheese on Rye
Ingredients

  • 2 slices ThinSlim Foods Rye Bread (zero net carbs!)
  • pat of butter
  • 1 slice of Target's Black Forest Ham (or 1/2 oz. of Old Farmer's Ham-type from Walmart)
  • 1 slice processed white cheese (regular, not low-fat!)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Canola oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 slices ThinSlim Foods Rye Bread (zero net carbs!)
  • pat of butter
  • 1 slice of Target's Black Forest Ham (or 1/2 oz. of Old Farmer's Ham-type from Walmart)
  • 1 slice processed white cheese (regular, not low-fat!)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Canola oil
  • pinch of salt

Don't write in to me to say that Canola isn't a good fat/oil. I know.

You see, the Canola oil gives the egg that real "fried-egg" taste. One quarter of a teaspoon of Canola oil won't hurt you, every now and then!

How To Make
"Fried" Egg with Ham and Cheese
on Rye

  1. Begin by toasting your two slices of Rye bread from ThinSlim Foods (see ThinSlim Foods ad above image!)
  2. Add 1/4 teaspoon Canola oil to the earthenware cooker (shown below)
  3. Crack the egg in the earthenware cooker and sprinkle with salt
  4. When toast has popped up, butter it with the pat of butter
  5. Put the egg in the pot (with the lid on) in the microwave and cook on full power for 20 seconds. Let it rest for 20 seconds. Microwave again (full power) for an additional 20 seconds.
  6. While the egg's cooking, put the cheese slice on one of the toasted and buttered slices of rye and then add the ham on top
  7. Top the ham'n'cheese with the egg when it's finished cooking

And enjoy!



NOTE - The spare piece of toast is just that ... spare! You could stick that spare slice of rye bread on top of the egg and make a big sandwich! Let us know how that worked for you if you went that route! LOL Feel free to read more about ThinSlim Foods Rye bread here on finally-KETO. It'll knock your socks off - it's that good. ZERO net-carbs too ...

SECOND NOTE - THIS recipe is pretty much the same as this one HERE; all that's different is the addition of the slice of cheese!

PS - I add the ham on top of the cheese because the ham stops the EGG from SLIDING OFF! Ask me how I know ...


REMINDER: This egg with ham and cheese on rye breakfast (or lunch!) takes only THREE minutes to make. (I've timed myself. Competitive. Who, me?)

ALSO NOTE: If your egg is taken directly from the refrigerator, cook the egg (full power) for 23 seconds; let sit 20 seconds; cook again for 23 seconds (full power).

If your egg is "room temperature" then a 20 second cook, 20 second rest, and 20 second cook will be ample.

Make a note of how cooked your yolk turned out. I like my yolk firm. Some folks like their yolk runny. It's totally up to you!

This egg with ham and cheese on rye toast is yummy and easy to make! The earthenware pot was one of those "As Seen On TV" items and I would hate to be without it. My mother got it for me from Target stores about five years ago! Thanks mum!

Keeping Track ...

When you first start on a low carb Keto diet, I do recommend keeping track of what you eat with either an app on your phone (and/or a desktop computer version both of which I do use daily), or use one of my tracking books if you’re a pencil and paper person. The digital tracker I use is called Cronometer.
