Ingredients: 

  • 2 slices of Nature’s Own Perfectly Crafted Brioche Style Bread

  • 2 slices of ham

  • 2 slices of turkey

  • 2 slices of Swiss cheese

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/4 cup of jelly or jam (raspberry recommended)

  • Confectioner’s sugar (for sprinkling)

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 Tablespoon of vegetable oil

  • 2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter

  • 1 Tablespoon of milk

Directions: 

  • Soften 1 tablespoon of butter and spread butter on each side of the bread.

  • Spread jelly on the inside of each slice.

  • Assemble the sandwich with 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of turkey, 1 slice of ham, another slice of cheese, another slice of turkey and another slice of ham.

  • Wrap the sandwich with plastic wrap and weigh it down with a grill press or skillet for 3-5 minutes so it melds together for the next step.

  • In a shallow dish, add the egg, milk, salt and nutmeg then whisk together until mixed.

  • Dip the sandwich into the mixture so some of the liquid is absorbed into the bread but isn’t falling apart.

  • Melt the vegetable oil and remaining butter in a skillet on medium heat.

  • Add the sandwich to the skillet and cook 3-4 minutes on each side until the sandwich is golden and the cheese melted.

  • Slice in half, dust with confectioner’s sugar and serve with warm jelly on the side.
