Ham & Cheese Stuffed French Toast

(8 servings)

  • 8 (1 and 1/2-inch) slices French bread
  • 8 (3/4-ounce each) slices American Cheese - cut in half
  • 4 ounces sliced deli ham
  • 3 large eggs - beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • powdered sugar
  • maple syrup
Cut 3-inch slit in side of each slice of bread almost to bottom of slice to form a pocket; place 2 half slices cheese inside each pocket. Place 1/2 ounce ham between slices of cheese.

Combine eggs and milk in medium bowl; beat well. Pour into pie pan. Dip both sides of stuffed bread in egg mixture.

Melt butter in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling; place bread slices in skillet. Cook, turning once, until bread is lightly browned (4 to 8 minutes). Sprinkle toast with powdered sugar; serve with syrup.
