“I love this sandwich that is a signature dish at Denney's, Moon Over My Hammy. Like most things, it is much more economical to make at home and even, dare I say, better! I originally grilled this in butter, but after reading Dawnab's recipe for Grilled Cheese Diner Style, I will only grill sandwiches in mayo. You can use whichever you like best. This is great for a Sunday morning breakfast with fresh fruit.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat grill or skillet to medium.
  2. Spread one side only of each slice of bread with half of either mayo or butter. Place one slice in skillet spread side down.
  3. Layer Swiss cheese, ham, scrambled egg and American cheese, in order, on plain side of bread in skillet. Top with other slice, spread side up.
  4. Cook for about three minutes or until crispy and brown. Turn and cook until brown and cheese is melted.
  5. As Dawnab advised, if using mayonnaise, do not substitute Miracle Whip, it will not work.
  6. Thanks to Dawnab for her recipe and inspiration in the use of mayo!
