Not your ordinary French Toast!

This is another great recipe we just tried! It came from a Taste of Home Cookbook...and I don't remember what it was called! It made a super fast, tasty breakfast! AND, it was easy to remove the egg for Jules and Derek.

1 egg
1/4 cup milk
10 slices of sandwich bread (the recipe called for french bread, but we used what we had)
10 slices thinly sliced deli ham
5 slices monterey jack cheese
5 tsp spreadable strawberry preserves

1. Place 5 slices bread out on the counter. Top each slice with 2 slices of ham and 1 slice of cheese. Top with remaining bread slices.
2. In a wide bowl or plate, whisk together egg and milk until smooth. Dip the top and bottom pieces of bread into the egg mixture (just like you would for french toast). Spray non-stick spray onto skillet. Place sandwiches onto hot skillet over medium heat and cook each side of sandwich until lightly browned and cheese is melted.
3. For eggless sandwiches: spread thin layer of butter on the top and bottom of the sandwich (just like a regular grilled cheese sandwich). Place sandwiches on skillet and brown on each side.
4. Serve each sandwich with 1 tsp strawberry preserves spread on top.
