A well loved family favourite, especially around the holidays. Can't remember where mom found it, but variations are delicious -- swap ham for sausage or smoked salmon, or do chunks instead of slices for bread/cheese/meat/etc.


  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 12 slices egg bread
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 6 oz ham, chicken or turkey, sliced
  • 6 oz cheese, sliced
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • pepper, to taste
  • (optional) parsley


  1. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Spread other side with mustard. On mustard side of six slices, evenly divide ham, cheese and tomato. Cover with slice of bread, buttered side out. Cut sandwiches in half, diagonally.
  2. Arrange sandwiches, cut side down and overlapping, in greased 7x11" baking dish. Whisk together eggs, milk and pepper. Pour over sandwiches. Cover and refridgerate for up to 12 hours. Bake in 375F oven for about 30 min or until crisp and golden. Garnish with parsley.

Makes enough for 4-6 portions.
