Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Monte Cristo Sandwiches

2 lg eggs
1/2 c milk
8 slices sturdy white sandwich bread
4 slices turkey breasts
4 slices swiss cheese
4 slices Black Forest or other ham
1 T unsalted butter

In a wide, shallow bowl, beat eggs and milk to combine. Lay a slice of bread on a work surface and top with 1 slice turkey, 1 slice cheese, 1 slice ham, and a second slice of bread. Repeat to assemble remaining sandwiches.

Warm a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Melt butter (if pan in not large enough to accomodate all 4 sandwiches, melt half of butter and cook sandwiches in 2 batches). When butter sizzles, swirl pan to coat. Carefully dip each sandwich in egg mixture, turning to lightly coat both sides, and lay sandwiches in hot pan. Cook, turning once, until sandwiches are well-browned on both sides, 4 to 6 minutes total.

To serve, cut sandwiches in half diagonally.
