Easy Monte Cristo

picture from My Sister's Cafe
1 loaf of french bread (or any other bread you prefer) sliced 1-2 inches thick

6 eggs
1 1/4 c. milk
1/4 tsp plus a pinch salt
2 tsp vanilla
7 T. flour
deli sliced ham
deli sliced swiss cheese
Beat eggs, then add milk, salt, vanilla, and flour. Dip both sides of bread in the egg mixture quickly (no need to soak if your bread is thick) and place in hot buttered pan. When the first side is browned, flip one bread slice over and stack ham and swiss on top. Then top with browned side of a second piece of bread. When the bottom of the french toast “sandwich” is browned, flip again and brown the top piece of bread. This will allow the cheese to melt and the ham to warm up. Serve with butter and maple syrup or any jam thinned out a bit for dipping.

Serves 4-6
