For a quick and clever take on a Monte Cristo, Kay Chun griddles ham until it's crisp, then piles it onto fried bread with cheese for a crispy, cheesy, insanely delicious sandwich.
Slideshow: Hot, Melted Sandwich Recipes
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 pound very thinly sliced ham
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons whole milk
Four 1-inch-thick slices of Pullman bread
8 slices (1/2 pound) of Gruyère cheese
Basil leaves, for garnish
How to Make It
On a griddle, melt the butter. Cook the ham over moderate heat, turning, until golden and crispy around the edges, about 5 minutes.
In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk. Dip the bread in the eggs and cook on the griddle until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip the bread and top with the cheese and ham. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted. Garnish with basil and serve.
