Ham Cutlets with Cheese

Ham Cutlets with Cheese

These ham cutlets are a bit thin, but are quite tasty with cheese, but are well accented with spring onion and black pepper. Good for your lunch box or as a snack to nibble on.

Ingredients: 2 servings

4 slices
Sliced cheese (non-easy melting type)
1 slice
Spring onions (chopped)
Black pepper
to taste
The coating:
◆Egg (Medium)
◆Flour (plain flour)
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon
as needed


1. These are the ingredients. Quarter the cheese. You don't need this much chopped spring onion.
2. Place the cut cheese on a slice of ham. Sprinkle on black pepper and top with chopped spring onion.
3. Put another piece of cheese on top.
4. Place another slice of ham on top and press tightly, especially around the edge. Make two of these.
5. Mix a beaten egg, flour and water together. After mixing in a bowl, I transferred it to a flat plate because it is easier to handle.
6. After dipping the prepared ham in the egg and flour mixture, coat with panko. Press tightly around the edges. Shallow-fry in oil until both sides are golden crisp.
7. Drain off the excess oil on a rack. Cut in half. All done.
8. Nice for your lunch. I stir-fried some carrots with the left-over egg mixture and spring onions.

Story Behind this Recipe

I happened to have 4 slices of ham left and I figured out this recipe to use them up.
They are thin so they're easy to put in the lunch box but are quite substantial.
