  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Lay out the bread on a work surface and use a glass or a rolling pin to flatten.
  3. Place a circle of ham in the middle of 4 slices of bread. Top with one circle of cheddar and another slice of ham.
  4. Place the remaining slices of bread on top and, using the lid of a mason jar or a cookie cutter, press down to create 4 pockets. Make sure the seams are closed, pinching to seal if necessary. Reserve the bread with the circle cut-outs.
  5. Place the pockets on a baking sheet.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter and garlic. Brush the pockets with garlic butter.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, or until toasted.
  8. Place the reserved bread on a baking sheet and brush with the remaining garlic butter.
  9. Crack 1 egg into each circle, and season with salt and pepper.
  10. Bake for 5 minutes, or until the yolk is cooked to your preference.
  11. Serve the egg bread with the ham and cheese pockets and sprinkle with chives.
  12. Enjoy!
