This is a new family-favorite at our house. Combine french toast with a classic ham and cheese sammie and voila! You’ve got ham and cheese french toast. And it’s yummy. We love it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – all three.
- sliced ham
- cheese (I use grated cheese because that’s what I always have on hand, but thin cheese slices work well too)
- non-stick cooking spray or a bit of oil unless your griddle is really non-stick
And here’s what you do
First, you just build ham and cheese sandwiches. Slice of bread, slice of ham, cheese, and another slice of bread on top.
Meanwhile, break one egg per sandwich that you’re making into a bowl and scramble them up. Heat your pan or griddle.
One at a time, dip each sandwich into the egg completely, then put it on the hot griddle. Repeat with the rest of the sammies. As they become browned and a little toasty, flip them over and cook the other side as well.
When both sides are done, remove them from the heat. You can serve them with maple syrup and with a fork if you’d like.
That’s the way half of my family likes to eat it. The other half takes it sandwich-style right off the griddle. No syrup at all.
I think it’s positively yummy both ways. Hope you try it and like it as much as we do. Here’s a printable version of the recipe if you’d like to give it a try . . .
