Ghost of Monte Cristo Sandwiches
4 slices Sara Lee Country Potato Bakery Bread
4 slices Sara Lee Baby Swiss Cheese
2 slices Sara Lee Oven Roasted Breast of Turkey
2 slices Sara Lee Virginia Brand Baked Ham
3 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting (optional)
1.Lay bread slices on work surface. On 2 bread slices, place 1 slice cheese, 1 slice turkey, 1 slice ham, and 1 more slice of cheese; top each with remaining bread slice.
2.Using a 5-by-4-inch ghost-shaped cookie cutter, cut out a ghost-shaped sandwich; repeat with remaining ingredients. Set aside.
3.In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, and salt.
4.In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Dip each sandwich in egg mixture to coat well on both sides, and place in skillet. Cook, turning once, until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
