Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Love, love, love these sandwiches. First discovered them when I was 16 and went to lunch with co-workers at Busch's down in the Nalley Valley. Busch's is gone now but thank goodness I can make this at home.

1 T butter
2 eggs
1T water
dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
2 slices white bread
mayo and mustard
thin sliced ham
swiss cheese slices
powdered sugar

Heat a skillet to medium heat and melt butter into skillet. Beat egg, water and spices together in medium sized bowl (big enough for sandwich to dip into). Assemble sandwich by smearing bread with dressing, stacking ham and cheese and then closing with the other slice of bread, smeared with dressing. Dip sandwich into egg mixture, turn to coat entire sandwich. Quickly transfer into hot skillet. Grill 2-3 minutes until egg is cooked and golden brown. Flip sandwich and cook other side another 2-3 minutes, again until egg is cooked, golden and the ham is warm and cheese melted.

Remove to plate. Cut on diagonal. Generously sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with a side of raspberry preserves. YUMM!
