A sweet and salty breakfast treat. It is like a French toast and a ham and cheese sandwich rolled into one. If you are not fond of cream cheese, you may use mayonnaise. Any bread will do too, so do as you wish.
4 Ounces Soft Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Roasted Garlic
6-8 Slices Rye or Marble Bread
1 Pound sliced Rosemary/black forest/ turkey ham, Deli Style
5 ounces sliced Swiss cheese
3 large eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup garlic olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar for dusting
Combine the roasted garlic and the cream cheese. Mix well. Spread it on the bread. Top it with ham and Swiss cheese. Place another piece of bread. Repeat the process for the remaining bread. You may cut off the edges of the bread if you wish. Wrap the bread individually in cling film to compress the bread. Refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
Combine the eggs and milk. Whisk. Add a dash of salt and pepper.
In a skillet or frying pan, heat a little oil (enough for 1 sandwich). Unwrap the sandwich and dip it in the egg. Fry it for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Turn once to cook it evenly.
Drain excess oil in paper towels. Cut it in half and dust with confectioner’s sugar. Serve warm with red currant jelly or blackberry jam.
