Recipe by Sids Sea Palm Cooki

A light lunch or dinner sandwich or even a brunch sandwich.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices white bread (I like french bread or challah or a good bread, but use whatever kind you like)
  • 2 thin slices ham
  • 2 thin slices turkey
  • 2 thin slices provolone cheese
  • 1 egg beaten with 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter (for frying)
  • 1 -2 teaspoon red currant jelly

Directions

  1. Whisk together the egg and milk, heat pan with the butter over medium-low heat.
  2. To make the sandwich, lay out one slice of bread, place a slice of provolone cheese on top.
  3. then layer the ham and turkey finishing it off with the second slice of provolone cheese and the second slice of bread on top.
  4. Take the assembled sandwich, dip into the egg batter, making sure that the entire sandwich has a chance to absorb the egg,.
  5. flip over, dunk the other side. Don't let it sit too long in the egg batter though.
  6. Place into the heated pan with the melted butter and cook over medium low heat until one side is nice and browned,.
  7. then flip over and cook the other side adding more butter to the pan if needed.
  8. This is done when the egg is cooked and the cheese is melted.
  9. Serve on a warmed platter with some tart jelly. I like Red Currant Jelly with this but Mayhaw Jelly is great as well.
