Cooking time:

Ingredients

4 (1/2-inch-thick) slices white sandwich bread
2 teaspoons Dijon or honey mustard
4 ounces Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
2 ounces Black Forest ham, thinly sliced
2 ounces roast turkey breast, thinly sliced
2 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons clarified butter
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting (optional)

Method

Spread 2 slices of bread evenly with mustard. Top each with 1/4 of the cheese. Place 1/2 of the ham and turkey on cheese. Cover with remaining cheese. Top with remaining slices of bread to form 2 sandwiches.
In a large shallow dish, whisk together eggs and milk; season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Dip each sandwich in egg mixture to coat well on both sides.
On a griddle or in a large sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add sandwiches and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Cut each sandwich in 1/2 and serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
