 Ingredients List

  • White sandwich bread
  • Thin sliced deli ham
  • Swiss cheese, sliced
  • butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C milk
  • 2T flour
  • Strawberry Jam (or raspberry works too)
  • Powdered sugar
  • optional: dijon mustard or maple syrup


Whisk flour and milk and then add in eggs and whisk until well-blended and place in a shallow dish.Now this isn”™t rocket science- basically you want to put the cheese and the meat on the inside of the bread, then dip both sides of the sandwich in the egg/milk mix, then grill in a hot buttered skillet until the bread is browned and toasty and the cheese inside is melted.Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with Jam. Done.

However, I”™ll tell you how I find it easiest to do.When I tried to build the sandwich first, and then dip it, it was hard to keep everything together and I had egg stuff dripping all over. Apparently I”™m not as coordinated as Dawn is because that”™s how she did it and it looked effortless!

Soo”¦I dip one side of one piece of bread in the egg mixture and place in a hot, buttered skillet. Then immediately build the sandwich on the bread in the pan, starting with the cheese on the bottom, then meat, then cheese again. (This way, the cheese melts and “glues” the sandwich together.) Then I dip one side of the 2nd piece of bread in the egg and place it on top (egg side out).
