Step 1

Cook the mushrooms first. A small amount (about 1 tsp) of butter of a handful of sliced mushrooms. Fry briefly before adding a tablespoon of water and cooking the lot on a simmer. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Remove the mushrooms when done and into the same pot, crack in the eggs, together with several small bits of butter. Stir continuously till creamy. Don’t forget the seasoning!

Step 3

When the eggs are almost done, pop the bread slices (here we used sourdough!) into the toaster for a light browning, not too crunchy.

Step 4

Then, lay the toast out and shave or slice Cheddar right onto the bottom slice of toast.

Step 5

Top with the mushrooms, then the cold cuts of ham. Followed by a spooning of mint sauce (or any other type of relish), and finally a good dollop of that creamy scrambled eggs. Put the hat on and pierce through with a skewer to hold it all in place.
