These are delicious! the following ingredients are for 6 sandwiches. Make certain to use a firm bread like Italian, pumpernickle or rye, the regular soft sliced sandwich bread will not hold up well to this.
- 12 slices bread (use French or Italian white or rye bread)
- prepared yellow mustard (use as much as you want)
- 6 slices ham, thinly sliced
- 6 slices chicken or 6 slices turkey, thinly sliced
- 6 slices swiss cheese (use thin slices) or 6 slices cheddar cheese (use thin slices)
- 3 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- black pepper
- softened butter (for the bread and frying)
- Spread the inside of each slice of bread with prepared mustard.
- In a shallow dish combine the milk eggs, salt and pepper; whisk to combine thoroughly.
- Make 6 sandwiches layering 1 slice ham, 1 slice turkey and 1 slice cheese (can use more more).
- Lightly brush the outside of the sandwiches with melted butter.
- Melt butter in a skillet over low heat.
- Dip the sandwich/s in the milk/egg mixture, turning to coat each side.
- Brown in the skillet.
This was not an extraordinary sandwich, but it was good. As good as any ham and cheese sandwich on toasted buttered bread would be. I think perhaps the egg to milk ratio was a little high on the milk, so my bread didnt get very "frenchy". I did use italian bread, so at least is crisped up and didnt get soggy. It was a good grilled cheese with ham sandwich. But I will mention, I did dip the sandwich in Red Raspberry preserves (as I have had on a Monte Cristo) and it was yummy. (Tried Apricot too but didnt like as much)
Wow! What a delicious sandwich. I was looking for something different to make for lunch and I'm so glad I ran into this recipe. My husband and almost 3 yr old son loved it also. My husband asked me if I was going to make such an awesome sandwich, how come I didn't make more? I will be next time. Thanks for a great recipe!
These are really easy and blend the flavors well. We tried diagonally sliced Italian bread (for a substantial sandwich) and Dijon mustard with deli ham, turkey, and swiss. To make sure the sandwiches didn't fall apart when turned to brown, we toasted the bread lightly (400* oven for 4 min + 2 min) before assembling the sandwich. Great with tomato soup!
