  1. Preheat your oven to 140°F.
  2. Form the burger patties. Divide the ground beef into four equal sized balls. Form each ball into a patty and use your thumb to indent the middle of one side of the patty. Season each patty on both sides with salt and black pepper.
  3. Cook the burgers. Melt the tablespoon of butter in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook the burgers two at a time for three to four minutes on both sides.
  4. When the burgers are almost done on the second side, add a slice of cheddar cheese and allow to melt completely.
  5. When all of the burgers are finished, put them in a dish, cover it with aluminum foil and put it in the oven to keep the burgers warm.
  6. Prepare your poached eggs. Crack each of your eggs into a small cup or dish.
  7. In a large saucepan, add enough water so it comes about an inch below the top. Add your salt and vinegar. Heat the water over medium heat until it simmers.
  8. Carefully drop each egg into the simmering water.
  9. Remove the pot from the heat, cover it and allow it to sit for five minutes. Do not disturb the eggs at all or remove the cover.
  10. While the eggs are poaching, build your burgers. Place some leaf lettuce on the bottom bun, add the burger and then the ham.
  11. Make sure to take the eggs out at after five minutes. Remove them from the water with a slotted spoon and cover them over the ham.
  12. Serve immediately.
