  • 1 oz shredded cheese or cheese curd
  • 2 slices Creole tomato or other farmers market tomato

    1. Slice ciabatta roll in half and spread the Dijon mustard on the roll. Layer the ham on the roll.
    2. Next, spoon the cheese curd on top of the ham and lay one slice of Creole tomato on each piece of bread. Top the tomatoes with the pea shoots and fold the two halves back together.
    3. Place the roll in a panini press sprayed with cooking spray and set on medium high. While the sandwich is heating through, heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place one tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Once the butter has melted but not browned, crack the egg in the skillet and cook until medium. Remove the sandwich from the press and top with a fried egg. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes, Tips & Suggestions
Note: Pea shoots are the young top leaves and tips of vines on a pea plant. They are usually sold in Asian markets or grocery stores. Cheese Curds are small chunks of cheese solids which have been separated from the natural whey present in milk, but not yet pressed into molds to make cheese. They can be found at many grocery stores.
