For Bechamel Sauce:
In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook until lightly golden.
Add milk and salt and whisk constantly until mixture thickens, about 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat. Stir into the sauce the nutmeg and half the cheese.
Prepare the Sandwich:
Preheat the broiler with the rack in the top position. Lay the slices of bread on a baking sheet. Divide the Dijon between 2 slices and top with ham.
Put the bechamel sauce between the 2 bread slices and top with cheese. Close the sandwiches.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the sandwiches and cook both sides until bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 3-4 minutes.
Return sandwiches to the baking sheet, top with remaining bechamel, and place under the broiler until bubbly ( about 1-2 minutes).
Meanwhile, melt remaining 1 tbsp butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Fry eggs, sunny side up, for about 2 minutes or until cook.
Top sandwiches with fried egg, season with black pepper, and serve immediately.
1.) Try to choose good quality white bread loaf that are strong enough to hold the weight of the melted cheese.
