Ingredients

Ingredients

4 Bakers Delight Brioche Hamburger Buns, halved
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp plain flour
1 cup milk
4 eggs, fried
8 slices of ham
2 cups grated cheese (Gruyere)
Salt & pepper to taste

Method

    1. Step 1

      Pre-heat oven grill. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 1-2 minutes until the mixture begins to bubble.

    2. Step 2

      Gradually pour in the milk, while stirring to create a smooth rich béchamel sauce. Bring the saucepan to the boil, then reduce heat to medium while stirring for 4-5 minutes, or until the mixture begins to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    3. Step 3

      Place one half of the Brioche Hamburger Buns on a tray, and assemble by adding 2 slices of ham to each bun, topping with ½ cup of grated cheese. Place in the oven until cheese begins to melt. Remove tray from oven. Add a generous spoonful of béchamel sauce and top with remaining Brioche Hamburger Bun, before returning to the oven.

    4. Step 4

      Grill until golden brown. Remove from the oven and top each Brioche Hamburger Bun with a fried egg. Serve immediately.
