Time 20m

Yield 3

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
6 slices white bread
6 slices Swiss cheese
12 slices thinly sliced deli ham
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
2 eggs
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • Use 2 tablespoons of the butter to spread over one side of each slice of bread. On three of the slices, spread a layer of Dijon mustard over the butter, and top each with 4 slices of ham. On the other three, spread mayonnaise, and top each one with 2 slices of Swiss cheese. Press ham and cheese sides of sandwiches together.
  • In a flat bottomed dish, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, and water until blended. Set aside.
  • Heat remaining butter and vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg mixture, and fry in the oil and butter until browned, flipping to brown on each side.
