Ham and Gruyère French Toast Sandwiches.
How decadent does that sound?
We love ham (ok, veggie ham for me, and prosciutto for Matt) and Gruyere, and we love French toast. Putting those two together? Brilliant!
A recipe from Food & Wine (sorry, guys...), it's layers of your-choice-of-ham-product and Gruyere on one dipped-in-egg bread slice, placed in a buttered frying pan, then topped with another egg-dipped slice, and cooked till egg is set and cheese is melted. To serve with, thinly sliced Granny Smith apples are simmered with water, sugar, and cinnamon until just tender. Some nicely browned potatoes on the side, and we call that a meal.
The sandwiches are...big. I mean, they taste big. Filling. Wonderful...the bread is just lightly French-toast-y, and the melted cheese and ham-ish products go so well together. The recipe makes four, with two for each. One can be too much!
