Recommended to me today by tesco. Sounds a 'strange' combination to me........ anyone tried it?

Like a bigger, cheesy version of boiled egg and soldiers, this is a fun weekend breakfast that the kids will either love…or hate!
Cover all the slices of bread with a thin layer of Marmite.
Sandwich the slices together to make 4 Marmite sandwiches.
Butter the outside of each sandwich before removing the crusts and cutting into 2cm soldiers. Put on a plate and keep in the fridge.
Heat the butter in a pan. Once the butter starts to foam add the flour and stir for 3 minutes.
Slowly add the milk, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.
When the sauce begins to thicken slightly add a pinch of nutmeg and leave to simmer for a further 5 minutes.
Stir in the grated cheese - reserving a small handful for later - before seasoning with salt and pepper.
Take 4 ramekins and spoon in enough cheese sauce to cover the bottom of each. Break the eggs and add one to each ramekin. Top with a couple more spoonfuls of sauce followed by a sprinkling of grated cheese. Let the children do all the spooning of the sauce.
Cook in an oven set to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling. Carefully remove and leave to cool for 5 minutes.
Place a frying pan over a low-medium heat. Add the Marmite soldiers to the pan and cook until golden brown on both sides.
Place the ramekins onto saucers, arrange the Marmite soldiers alongside and dip away!
