- Total time 20 minutes
- Portion size 2 servings
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup 2% milk
- 4 slices egg bread (such as challah or brioche)
- 1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard
- 2 square slices Swiss cheese , halved
- 4 slices Black Forest ham
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons black currant jam or sweet red pepper jelly , stirred
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. In shallow bowl, whisk eggs with milk.
Place 2 slices of the bread on large cutting board; spread each with mustard. Layer each with 1 slice of the cheese and 2 slices of the ham. Top with remaining cheese; sandwich with remaining bread. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture, soaking for 15 seconds per side; return to cutting board.
Preheat oven to 400°F. In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook sandwiches, turning once, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to prepared pan; bake until sandwiches are warmed through and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
Cut in half; serve with jam for dipping.
Test Kitchen Tip: Leftover cranberry sauce makes a great substitute for the jam or jelly.
