Trim off the crusts and spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Layer one slice with cheese, ham, and then another layer of cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top and lightly press down to seal.
Combine the ● ingredients, and immerse the sandwich, turning it over to soak both sides.
Heat a frying pan with butter or vegetable oil. Cook the sandwich over medium heat taking care not to burn it. Once it is nice and brown on both sides, it's done.
Add a side of seasonable fruit, and enjoy the meal.
Story Behind this Recipe
French toast can be cooked in a variety of ways. I made my usual croque-monsieur using French toast.
I recommend using both hands, not utensils, such as chopsticks, in the steps from soaking the bread in the egg mixture to toasting in a frying pan, since the bread becomes heavy after absorbing the egg mixture.
