  1. Place the bacon in a skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon pieces on paper towels; retain bacon drippings in skillet.
  2. Brush 1 side of each bread slice with bacon drippings and the other side of bread slices with 1 teaspoon butter. Use a paper towel to wipe remaining drippings from skillet.
  3. Lay a piece of bread, buttered side down, on a plate. Sprinkle with half the green onions and spread half the Havarti cheese, all the ham, remaining Havarti cheese, remaining half of the green onions, and remaining bread slice with buttered side up.
  4. Pan-fry the sandwich until bread is toasted golden brown and Havarti cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  5. Melt remaining 2 teaspoons butter in skillet over medium heat. Gently crack eggs into hot butter and cook until whites are set and yolks are runny. Gently turn eggs over and cook just until tops of egg whites are set (for over easy eggs).
  6. Pull the sandwich apart between ham slices and lay tomato slices, romaine lettuce leaves, and eggs onto half the sandwich; replace top. Cut sandwich in half between the 2 eggs and serve.

Wow - now this is a sandwich! And, just as the submitter states it's a BLT on steroids! My husband loves anything with bacon so I had to make this for him and I'm glad I did. It's rich, meaty, and absolutely delicious. While it's not something you'd make everyday unless you're looking to clog your arteries it's nice to splurge once in a while. I added the bacon at the end and served this with a bunch of napkins... Thanks for a great recipe Hot Grandma!

If you want to make someone very happy, prepare this sandwich for them. Absolutely delicious. I used fresh bread from the bakery sliced not too thick and followed the recipe and directions exactly. I added the bacon along with the eggs at the end. You will see smiles when you serve this....

This sandwich is decadent and delicious! I didn't have the bread specified, and that was my only regret b/c it didn't come out as crisp as I would've liked. I kept reading the recipe, but I didn't see where you add the actual bacon to the sandwich, so I just added it at the end w/ the lettuce, tomato and egg. The flavor combination is great and the little guy absolutely LOVED it! I will def be making this again (with the right kind of bread, lol)! Thanks for sharing. :)

I am the submitter of this recipe. My first recipe submitted & was approved the next day so didn't have time to make corrections. I didn't mean to spread bread with the bacon grease but with the fond or fuzzy drippings which I would pat dry. Save the bacon grease to later fry eggs or potatoes. And yes, pull the grilled part of the sandwich apart between the ham slices to add the lettuce, tomato, fried eggs AND the bacon. Hope you all enjoy!

wow.....this made my hubby a very happy man tonight!! I used pepperjack cheese, (its what i had) on Italian bread (also what I had) it was very very very good! Thanks for the posting! Saves this in the box for sure! * he said to add that it was the best sandwich we ever made* Phenomenal he says! (I rarely get that good of a review for a dinner) lol

Made as written except that I only had plain white bread and I also chose to only butter one side of the bread and leave the bacon grease out of it. LOVED the flavor the green onions made melted with the cheese. The one problem I did have was getting my cheese to melt but that might have been fault to my cheap bread which browned so quick. This is one you wouldn't want to eat on a weekly basis but it sure makes for a nice treat once in awhile.

Wow the flavors together are awesome! Really great! I never knew green onion and Havarti could taste so yummy. I used Brownberry Country Buttermilk bread.
