For the Ham & Swiss Stuffed French Toast
- 1 loaf thick french bread
- 6 ounces sliced ham
- 3 ounce Swiss cheese (about 6 slices)
- 3 large egg
- 1 cup milk
- butter – for frying
- icing sugar – for garnish (optional)
- maple syrup – for topping
How To Make Ham & Swiss Stuffed French Toast
Cut French loaf into 3 2-inch slices.
Then, cut each slice 3/4 of the way through from the bottom.
Stuff each slit piece of bread with equal amounts of cheese and ham. (You’re basically making sandwiches. It’s just that the bread is stuck together at one end.)
Whisk the egg and milk together. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture – coating both sides completely.
Melt about 2 Tablespoons of butter in a large frying pan or skillet over medium heat. Fry each side until golden brown (about 5 minutes for the first side and 4 minutes for the second side).
Dust with icing sugar and serve with maple syrup.
3/4 lb halibut, haddock, cod, or other mild white fish
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 tsp fresh black pepper
1/2 Tbsp grainy Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1-1/2 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix
4 slices firm bread
8 slices Swiss cheese
2-3 Tbsp butter
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a small rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Dry the fish. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, Old Bay Seasoning and black pepper, and rub the mixture on all sides of the fish. Place the fish on the prepared baking sheet, and roast in the oven for 15 minutes (or more, if the fish is very thick). Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly.
While the fish is cooking, in a mixing bowl stir together the mustard and mayonnaise, and fold in the cabbage until it’s well combined. Set aside.
Set a large nonstick frying pan on the stove; it should be large enough to hold two sandwiches at once.
Begin the sandwich assembly: Set out the 4 slices of bread, and place a slice of cheese on each piece of bread. Divide the fish into two pieces, and place one on each of 2 slices of bread. Top the fish with cabbage. Close each sandwich, pressing slightly to flatten the fish.
In the frying pan over low-medium heat, melt half of the butter. Place the two sandwiches in the pan, and weight down slightly with another frying pan or a plate. When the sandwiches are browned on the bottom, add the remaining butter to the pan and turn the sandwiches to brown the second side.
