Easy Sweet & Salty Breakfast French Toast
The other morning my husband and I were at a diner, and all I really wanted was this little breakfast that I made on a whim years ago.
Kind of like french toast filled with ham and cheese, sprinkled with powdered sugar and topped with maple syrup-sweet & salty at it’s best. It’s so easy too. I made this up one morning when foraging for some food in my kitchen, and when I shared it on the Just A Pinch recipe site, it earned me a JAP Blue Ribbon along with almost 700 shares on social media and almost 1,800 “pinches,” or saves on the site.
Sometimes the simplest things are best.
- 8 slices bread, any kind
- 4 slice deli ham
- 4 slice American cheese
- 4 eggs
- 4 Tbsp milk
- 4 tsp butter
- 4 Tbsp powdered sugar
- 1/4 c maple syrup
- 1. Preheat a griddle or skillet to 350 degrees. Place each piece of ham and cheese inside 2 pieces of bread, making 4 sandwiches.
- 2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and milk. Spray the heated cooking surface with nonstick cooking spray and then place butter evenly over cooking surface to melt.
- 3. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture, coating on both sides, and place each on top of melted butter.
- 4. Grill on both sides, flipping, after golden brown. Serve with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and warm maple syrup. I eat mine without sugar & syrup sometimes too.
