Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
Crack the 6 eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk them together until fully combined.
In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
Once the butter is melted and the skillet is heated, pour in the whisked eggs.
Cook the eggs until they are thickened and not running, stirring occasionally. This should take around 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
While the eggs are cooking, take the round loaf of sourdough bread and cut 1/4 off from the top. Use a knife to carefully hollow out the inside of the bread, making sure not to cut through the bottom or sides of the bread.
Once the eggs are cooked, layer the bottom of the hollowed-out bread with half of the sliced deli ham, followed by half of the shredded Monterey jack cheese, and then half of the shredded cheddar cheese.
Next, add the cooked eggs to the bread, spreading them out in an even layer.
Add a layer of thinly sliced tomato on top of the eggs, followed by the remaining deli ham slices, Monterey Jack cheese, and cheddar cheese.
Place the top of the bread back on top of the filling and press down lightly to secure it.
Transfer the filled bread onto a baking sheet and place it into the preheated oven.
Bake the bread for 25 minutes or until it is heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Once the bread is fully baked, remove it from the oven and allow it to stand for 10 minutes before cutting into it.
To serve, slice the bread into four servings and enjoy!
