Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Ham and Cheese French Toast

Try this savory mixture between a ham and cheese sandwich and French toast for a special breakfast treat. I prefer these served as a savory breakfast treat, but many of our taste testers really liked them with warmed maple syrup.

4 eggs
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 slices firm textured bread
2 tablespoons softened butter
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
4 slices favorite cheese
4 slices cooked ham
butter for frying

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Beat the eggs, cream, and salt together in a small flat bowl or pie plate. Spread the tops of the slices of bread evenly with the butter and then the mustard. Top four of the slices of bread with the cheese and ham. Place the other four slices of bread on top of the cheese and ham, mustard-butter side down. Melt some butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Dip the first two sandwiches into the egg mixture and coat evenly. Place the sandwiches in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Place the sandwiches on an ovenproof dish and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches, adding more butter if needed, and serve hot.

Makes 4 sandwiches.
