Heat butter in skillet on medium heat. Beat egg in a dish with a flat bottom. Coat one side of sliced Italian bread in egg. Put egg side down on the skillet. Layer 1/2 slice Swiss cheese on bread, followed by a hearty handful of shaved ham; top with other 1/2 of cheese. Dip another slice of bread in egg; put egg side up remaining on sandwich.
