How to Make an Easy Dinner for Familys


In small saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Add flour and whisk continuously until bubbly and light brown, 4 to 5 minutes.

Add milk, whisking continuously, and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer until thickened, whisking regularly, 5 minutes more.

Add half the Gruyere, whisking until smooth, then whisk in a pinch of nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Let cool slightly.

Heat broiler. Arrange slices of bread on a baking sheet. Spread ½ tablespoon Dijon on each slice and layer with ham and tomato.

Cover with about 2 tablespoons cheese sauce and about 3 tablespoons shredded cheese. Toast under broiler for 1½ to 2 minutes (watch carefully so it doesn’t burn!) until cheese melts.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat, then add eggs and reduce heat to medium.

Cook eggs, basting regularly with butter, until whites are set and yolks are still slightly runny, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and top each sandwich with an egg.

In large bowl, whisk together remaining 1 teaspoon Dijon, red wine vinegar, and olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Add greens and dill, tossing gently to combine. Serve with sandwiches.
