READY IN: 35mins


  • 8
    slices bread (I use challah)
  • 4
    teaspoons honey dijon mustard
  • 8
    slices thin deli sliced swiss cheese
  • 8
    slices thin deli ham
  • 8
    slices thin deli sliced turkey (I like smoked)
  • 3
    large eggs
  • 2
    tablespoons flour
  • 1
    tablespoon melted butter
  • 14
    teaspoon salt
  • 14
    teaspoon black pepper
  • 2
    tablespoons milk (low fat to try to keep it low in fat!)
  • powdered sugar, for dusting
  • raspberry preserves, for dipping


  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • Lightly butter a baking sheet pan. I use the spray.
  • Spread 1/2 teaspoon mustard on each slice of bread.
  • Layer between mustard sides of two slices of bread, 1 slice cheese, 2 slices ham, 2 slices turkey, and another slice of cheese.
  • Repeat to make four sandwiches. Whisk eggs, flour, butter, salt and pepper in a shallow dish until smooth.
  • Blend in milk.
  • DIP both sides of sandwiches into egg mixture until bread is lightly soaked.
  • Place on baking sheet; drizzle any remaining egg mixture over top of sandwiches.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes until bottom is golden brown.
  • Turn with wide spatula and continue baking 8-10 minutes or until second side is golden brown.
  • Serve warm dusted with powdered sugar and dip or spread raspberry preserves on sandwiches.
  • Garnish with fresh raspberries.
