How to prepare poached eggs au gratin
With a pastry cutter cut 4 discs from the slices of sandwich bread and put them in a previously buttered baking dish.
Always with the same mold cut 4 slices of cheese and arrange them on the bread, then put the cooked ham on top taking care not to let it come out of the edges.
Put a pan on the fire with salted water and acidulated with a spoonful of vinegar, as soon as the boil rises, lower the flame to the minimum.
Pop an egg on a saucer and slide it into the water, repeat the operation also for the other 3 eggs, then cook them 3-4 minutes.
Pull the eggs up with a slotted spoon and dip them in a bowl of fresh water.
When they have cooled, remove the eggs with the slotted spoon, place them on a clean towel, then dry them.
Cut out the outlines of the eggs and arrange them on top of the cooked ham.
Prepare the béchamel with 20 g of butter, 10 g of flour, 1 dl of milk and salt to taste.
