Denny’s Moons Over My Hammy

Denny’s Moons Over Hammy is a hearty breakfast sandwich that is a popular menu item at Denny’s. This hearty sandwhich features grilled ham, two different types of cheese and sourdough bread, what could be better. I hate to say how many times I have ordered this sandwich at Denny’s. I love this hearty sandwich, and I really hate a full parking lot. On the weekends I have been known to make this copycat restaurant recipe at home.

Denny’s Moons Over My Hammy

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals out, I don’t know why, for me, personally, I really like to have breakfast out. I don’t know if it not being able to be real morning person, or the fact that I get to feel indulgent when having breakfast out at a restaurant. How about you, what meal do you enjoy having at a restaurant?

Denny's Moons Over My Hammy

This is a well known and well loved Denny's breakfast sandwich.


  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 6 slices deli sliced ham (thin)
  • 2 slices American processed cheese
  • 2 slices Swiss processed cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 tablespoon milk


Crack two eggs into a small bowl and add one tablespoon of milk and mix together well. Place ham in a heated skillet, and brown on each side, for one to two minutes. Set ham aside. Add 1 teaspoon of butter to skillet, and pour scrambled eggs into pan. Cook eggs until done. It is best to not stir the eggs very much, and to cook them more like an omlette. When eggs are done, set aside.

Build sandwich by buttering one slide of bread, and putting buttered side down into the skillet, then add two slices of American processed cheese, then the eggs, then ham, the Swiss cheese, top with the remaining slice of sourdough bread, and butter the top piece of bread. Cook on low to low-medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until the bread is toasted brown. Cut sandwich in half when serving.

    Oh boy, I hate to do this but … years ago — 15, to be specific, when I was an AOL employee noob, I worked the late (not quite graveyard) shift. A few of us became fast friends and would frequently head out for something to eat when we were done with our shift at 2am. Our faves were the Denny’s and Waffle House type places. Restaurants I’d never even knew existed before I moved to Jacksonville.

    So, we’d head over, fill our hungry faces with fattening food and head our separate ways to clean up and go to bed. By late afternoon when I’d wake up to start my day all over again, I was still pretty full, but thinking about another after work meet-up at one of the greasy spoons.

    My point in all of this is that I became a Denny’s regular and I think the dish was called Moons over My Hammy, no?

    And I may have just stepped into the “know it all” category — maybe you wrote it your way because it’s a Copykat recipe so it’s your take on Moons over My Hammy and I’m looking like a real dork here. If that’s the case, sorry! But I hadn’t thought of Denny’s or this delish breakfast in 15 years.

    The nice thing is that you brought back some incredible memories and for that I say, THANK YOU! Those truly were the days. Ah, such is life.
