Moons Over my Hammy Clone Recipe

Denny’s breakfast sandwich brings together scrambled eggs, cheeses, and ham into a combination that brings us the morning breakfast memories we grew up with. Taste. Remember. Enjoy!

Moons Over my Hammy Clone Recipe


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1/8 tsp salt (you may use more or less to taste)
  • 3 tbsp dairy free margarine or butter
  • 2 one ounce slices tavern ham
  • 2 slices Sourdough Bread, sliced 1/4 inch thick (you may also use commercial gluten free bread)
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese or cheese alternative (We used Daiya cheddar style slices)
  • 1 slice swiss cheese or cheese alternative (If you prefer use two slices of Daiya cheddar instead, as we did – they also have Swiss style slices available)


Makes 1 Sandwich


Butter the Bread. Using 1 tbsp of margarine or butter, butter the bread slices on one side and set aside.


Combine. In a bowl, beat together eggs, water and salt, until whites are thoroughly combined and eggs begin to ‘rope’ when the fork is lifted, about 1 to 2 minutes.


Heat Skillets. Place two skillets on medium high heat. Melt 1 tbsp margarine or butter in each skillet.


In First Skillet: scramble the eggs, stirring constantly, until eggs are light and fluffy. Remove from heat.


In Second Skillet: fry the ham until slightly browned and caramelized on the surfaces.


Bread Slices. Remove eggs and ham from the pans and set in warm place while you fry the bread. Place the bread slices in each pan, buttered side down, and fry until golden brown on one side and hot on the other.


Cheese Slices. Place the cheese slices on top of the bread and allow to melt (you can speed this up by covering for a few seconds with a pan lid).


Put Sandwich Together. Immediately remove from the skillet, and place one slice of bread, cheese side up, on a plate, and top with ham and then scrambled egg. Top with the remaining slice of bread, cheese side down. Cut the sandwich in half and serve with hash browns.


Upgrade! Add 2 one ounce slices of thick cut, cooked bacon to the sandwich when you top it with the ham, or omit the ham altogether and just use the bacon.
