Monte Cristo Sandwich - a French-style toast sandwich filled with ham and cheese then dipped in a batter and fried to golden brown perfection. A wonderful diner sandwich with the right balance of savory and sweetness!
Soften 1 tablespoon of butter and spread it lightly one side of the two slices of bread. Spread mustard on the unbuttered slice of bread.
Assemble the bread by putting Swiss cheese on top of the buttered bread, followed by ham slices. Then top the layer with the other slice of bread.
Carefully trim off crusts on all sides of the sandwich.
In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, half and half, salt and pepper, ground nutmeg and flour.
Dip sandwich into the egg mixture and let the bread absorbs some of the liquid mixture
Then melt butter in a skillet and cook sandwich about 3-4 minutes per side until sandwich is golden brown and cheese melted. Serve with jam or jelly on the side or dust it off with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
