Ingredients

  • 1 lb (500 g) asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 white bread such as challah
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) butter
  • 8 oz (250 g) smoked turkey
  • 8 oz (250 g) ham
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Method

Snap tough ends off asparagus; cut stalks into 2-inch (5 cm) pieces. In roasting pan, toss asparagus with oil; roast in 400°F (200°C) oven until slightly browned and tender, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut bread into eight 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. In shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper; dip each slice into egg mixture, turning to coat and soak up liquid.

In large nonstick skillet, melt half of the butter over medium heat; fry bread, in batches, adding remaining butter as necessary and turning once, until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to rimmed baking sheet; keep warm in 200°F (100°C) oven.

Top 4 of the slices with turkey then asparagus; top with remaining slices. Cut in half on diagonal. Sprinkle with parsley.
