Leftovers don't have to be drab. Use extra ham in this classic sandwich.


  • Dijon mustard

  • 8 slices country bread

  • Swiss cheese slices

  • Bourbon-Glazed Ham

  • 4 large eggs

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • Confectioners' sugar


  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.
