French toast ham and Louis D'or cheese sandwich
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 8 slices of brioche bread
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp. butter
  • 12 slices of Black Forest ham
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned mustard
  • 170 g (16 oz) Louis D'or cheese, cut into thin slices
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F). Place the rack in the middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and nutmeg until the mixture is homogeneous. Salt and pepper lightly.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1/4 of the butter. Dip four slices of bread into the milk and egg mixture, one at a time, and place them in the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Set aside. Repeat the operation with the remaining slices of bread, taking care to add the same amount of butter before baking.
  4. In the same skillet, melt half of the remaining butter. Add half of the ham slices. Brown for 1 minute on each side. Set aside. Repeat the process with the remaining butter and ham.
  5. Return all the ham to the skillet. Add maple syrup and mustard. Mix gently to coat the slices generously. Remove from fire.
  6. Place four slices of French toast on the baking sheet. Spread the ham and Louis D'or cheese on the toasts, alternating them. Set aside the mustard syrup. Bake for 5 minutes.
  7. Transfer the topped French toast slices to four plates. Cover with the remaining four slices of French toast. Drizzle with syrup and serve immediately.
