Breakfast Piglet Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Gwen is always on the lookout for a new grilled cheese sandwich.  This is a great combination of flavors to start your morning.

Yield: 2 sandwiches


  • Apple Mustard
    • 1 tbsp oil
    • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/3 cup mustard
    • 1/3 cup apple butter
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 4 slices bread
  • 4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces sliced ham
  • 2 eggs


  1. For the apple mustard, heat the oil in a small saucepan.  Add the onion and salt, stirring to combine.  Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent.
  2. Remove the lid and raise the heat.  Cook until the onion is brown, stirring frequently.  Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
  3. In a food processor, combine the onions, mustard, and apple butter.  Puree until smooth.
    • You can use it immediately, store in the fridge for a couple weeks, or can it to last longer.
  4. To assemble the sandwiches, first stir together the butter and rosemary.  Butter two slices of bread, and set butter-side down on a cutting board.  Spread apple mustard over both slices.
  5. Top each slice of bread of a slice of cheddar cheese.  Divide the ham evenly between them.
  6. Cook the eggs in a skillet, sunny-side down.  Place an egg on each sandwich.
  7. Cover each egg with the final slices of cheese.  Top each with the final slices of bread, and butter the top side.
  8. Cook in a skillet over medium heat until the bottom is browned.  Flip and cook the second side.
  9. Remove from the heat, let stand 30 seconds, and then slice.  Serve immediately.
