Ingredients

  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons butter
Smoked Salmon Filling:
  • 1/2 cup light cream cheese
  • 4 oz smoked salmon
  • 4 oz smoked turkey
  • 4 sweet onions
  • 2 teaspoons drained capers chopped

Method

Smoked Salmon Filling: Spread cream cheese evenly over 1 side of each bread slice. On each of 4 slices, arrange smoked salmon and onion. Sprinkle with capers. Top with remaining bread slices.

In shallow dish, whisk together eggs and milk. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture to coat both sides and soak up liquid. (Make-ahead: Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet; cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat until bubbly; fry sandwiches, turning once, until golden, about 4 minutes.
