2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cups cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
8 slices country bread
4 teaspoons dijon mustard
8 thin slices ham
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
4 pieces egg
Make the mornay sauce: heat butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and cook for about 1 minute. Add milk, mix using a whisk, and bring to a boil until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Add cream and parmesan cheese; whisk until smooth. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Set aside.
Toast bread slices in a toaster oven for 5 to 6 minutes. Set aside.
Preheat toaster oven to high. Place 4 slices toasted bread on a baking sheet and spread each slice with 1 teaspoon mustard. Top each with 2 slices ham and 2 tablespoons Mornay sauce. Top with remaining bread slices to make 4 sandwiches.
Sprinkle Gruyère and mozzarella cheeses on top and broil until cheese begins to melt, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat cooking oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook eggs sunny side up.
Top each sandwich with 2 to 3 tablespoons Mornay sauce and a fried egg. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.
TIP: Mornay sauce is simply just béchamel sauce to which cheese has been added
