Monte Cristo Sandwich

Source: Everyday Food, March/April 2003

Ingredients

  • Dijon mustard
  • 8 slices country bread
  • Swiss cheese slices
  • Bourbon-Glazed Ham
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Spread mustard on bread. Layer 4 bread slices with Swiss cheese, ham, and cheese again. Place remaining bread slices on top.

  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture, turning to coat well.

  3. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. When butter is foamy, add the sandwiches, and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes total. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar.
