Updated Aug 19, 2010

Ingredients

  • 12 slices French bread, 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/4 lb shaved or very thinly sliced cooked ham
  • 3 slices (3/4 oz each) Gruyère or Swiss cheese, cut in half
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • Powdered sugar, if desired
  • 3/4 cup strawberry syrup

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
