Comte cheese or gruyere
Cream
Slices of ham off the bone
Freshly ground black pepper
Butter
4 small eggs

1. Place 4 slices of bread on a board. Spread lightly with Dijon mustard.

2. Grate the cheese and mix with just enough cream to make a paste. Spread on the bread.

3. Top with slices of ham and add pepper.

4. Heat a frypan and add 1 Tbs butter. Using a cutter, cut out rounds from each remaining slice. Sandwich together and brush with softened butter.
