The size and spiciness of jalapeños can vary dramatically. Use gloves when handling them, and be sure to have a taste before adding them to your sandwich; this way you can adjust the amount of spice according to your heat tolerance.

  • 2 jalapeño pepper halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 crusty roll (about 8 inches/20 cm long)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (such as applewood)
  • 2 slices Black Forest ham
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • pinch each salt and pepper


Place jalapeño pepper halves, cut sides down, on foil-lined baking sheet; brush with oil. Broil until skins are charred, about 4 minutes; let cool. Peel off skins; discard skins and slice flesh.

Meanwhile, cut roll in half horizontally; cut each half crosswise. Place, cut sides up, on baking sheet. Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle cut sides of bun tops with Cheddar and jalapeño peppers; place ham on cut sides of bun bottoms. Bake until cheese is bubbly, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, in nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add eggs, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, just until softly set, about 5 minutes. Spoon over ham; sandwich halves together.
