- 6 ounces sliced boiled ham, coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 tablespoons snipped chives
- Four 3/4-inch thick slices of firm white sandwich bread
- 1 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 large eggs
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a food processor, pulse the ham until finely chopped. Transfer the ham to a bowl and stir in the mayonnaise, mustard, hot sauce, cayenne and chives.
Toast the bread until golden. Spread the toast with 2 teaspoons of the butter and top with the deviled ham.
In a very large nonstick skillet, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in the olive oil. Crack the eggs into the skillet and cook over moderately high heat until the whites are set, about 2 minutes. Season each egg lightly with salt and black pepper. Using a spatula, set the eggs on the deviled ham sandwiches and serve immediately.
