  • 1 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Porcini Mushroom Powder
  • 2 tbsp Essential Cheese Sauce
  • Butter, for spreading
  • 2 slice/s No.1 White Sourdough
  • 2 tbsp grated Swiss Gruyère
  • 2 slice/s Principe Italian Prosciutto Cotto
  • 2 tsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 Clarence Court Burford Browns Large Free Range Egg


  1. Preheat the grill to high. Combine the porcini powder and cheese sauce in a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Butter the bread on both sides, place on a baking sheet and toast under the grill, until golden on 1 side. Remove from the grill, then change the setting from grill to oven, at 200°C, gas mark 6.

  3. Turn the bread slices over, with the toasted side facing down. Spread 1 piece with the porcini cheese sauce, then top with the grated cheese and prosciutto. Top with the second slice, toasted side up.

  4. Bake for 5-8 minutes, until the filling is heated through and the cheese has melted. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Fry the egg until the white is opaque with a crispy base. Serve the egg on top of the toasted sandwich. Delicious with a crisp green salad on the side.
