Monte Cristos Sandwiches

Holy cow these were sooo good!!! I can't believe how fast I gobbled it up. No kidding, I was done first! And then wished that I had made more! The combination of flavors is amazing! Will change the way you look at french toast!!


2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2-3 drops vanilla
1 cup low fat milk
2-3 pinches ground nutmeg
10 slices of french or sourdough bread
5 tablespoons apricot jam
1 apple cut in thin slices
5 slices of ham (lunch meat or from deli)
5-6 slices of cheddar cheese (we only had mozzarella and it was delish)

1. Beat eggs 2-3 minutes with mixer. Add the sugar and continue to beat. Add cornstarch and vanilla and beat in. When well mixed add milk and nutmeg and you got it, beat it again.

2. Pour 1/8 inch batter into a 9x13 pan. Spread 5 slices of bread with a tablespoon each of apricot jam. Set them in dish jam side up. Then top each with 2-3 slices of apple, a slice or 2 of ham and a thin slice of cheese. Top each sammie with other piece of bread. Pour the rest of the batter over the top of sandwiches. Lift each sandwich out and set on a plate to keep from getting soggy. (unless you have a griddle, you can just move them straight to the griddle and fry up all at once).

3. Fry each sandwich on a lightly greased non-stick skillet over medium heat until golden on each side. (I fit 2 on a pan at one time). Keep sandwiches warm in a 150 degree oven until ready to eat. Cut in half and dig in!! SO good! We had these babies with homemade potato fries and yogurt/berry smoothies, you have yourself a healthy delicious meal!!
