Monte Cristo Sandwiches

So easy, so elegant, so good.....

For each sandwich:
1 Tbsp. butter
2 slices of your favorite bread (I use Health Nut bread)
2-3 oz. sliced deli ham
2-3 oz. sliced turkey
1 slice provolone or Swiss cheese
Honey mustard
1 egg
1-2 Tbsp. milk
pinch salt
Dusting of powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp. cherry preserves

Spread honey mustard on one or both slices of bread. Place ham on one slice of the bread and the turkey on the other. Place cheese slice between the two meats. Put the sandwich halves together.

Melt butter in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Do not burn butter, but be certain it is hot and bubbly before toasting sandwich.

Place egg in a shallow pie pan. Add milk and mix until completely scrambled. Add a pinch of salt. Dip sandwich (both sides) in egg mixture, making sure the egg has saturated the bread.

Toast both sides of the bread until brown and cheese is melted, pressing down to make sure the sandwich is warmed inside. Turn several times and make sure the pan has enough butter, so that the sandwich doesn't burn.

Remove sandwich and slice in half - diagonally. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with preserves on the side for dipping. If you don't have cherry preserves, use strawberry instead.
