Mary's Monte Cristo


1 egg, beaten w/1 Tablespoon water
Dash nutmeg
2 slices Arnold Health Nut bread
2 slices Esskay 97% fat free, reduced sodium ham
2 slices oven-roasted turkey breast
1 slice Alpine Lace or Finlandia Heavenly Light Swiss cheese
2-4 Tablespoons butter; start with 2, then add more as needed

Spray a large non-stick skillet with non-stick spray, heat over medium-low heat. Melt butter in skillet. Combine egg/water and nutmeg. Dip each slice of bread into egg mixture, then place in skillet until golden brown on one side, then flip.

Assemble sandwiches between slices of French toast, turn off heat and cover skillet until ham and turkey are warm and cheese is melted.

Serve with warm blackberry or raspberry preserves.

Note: When I make this for myself, I use Land O'Lakes Light Butter and sugar-free preserves. With the light butter, the sandwich sticks a bit, but it's still yummy.
