Directions

  • 1 Top 6 slices of the bread evenly with ham and cheese, folding to fit. Top with remaining bread slices.
  • 2 In small bowl, beat eggs, milk and granulated sugar with fork or wire whisk until well mixed; pour into shallow bowl.
  • 3 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium-low heat. Dip each side of each sandwich in egg mixture, allowing time for bread to soak up mixture. Add sandwiches to skillet. Cover; cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Croque monsieur, or Monte Cristo sandwiches, are making a comeback! Traditionally a French-style grilled ham and cheese sandwich that has been dipped into a beaten egg mixture and fried in butter, this version becomes a rich and sensational French toast! Mix equal amounts of strawberry syrup and sour cream for a different topping flavor.
