For a quick and clever take on a Monte Cristo,  griddle the ham until it's crisp, then pile it onto fried bread with cheese for a crispy, cheesy, insanely delicious sandwich. 

Ingredients

4 Tbsp unsalted butter ½ lb very thinly sliced ham 2 large eggs 2 Tbsp whole milk4 1-inch-thick slices of Pullman bread 8 slices (1/2 pound) of Gruyère cheese Basil leaves, for garnish

Directions

  1. On a griddle, melt the butter. Cook the ham over moderate heat, turning, until golden and crispy around the edges, about 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
