Breakfast Monte Cristos is one of my favorite websites for cooking ideas. Awhile ago I came across this recipe on her website and I knew Peter would love it (I am not an egg fan). They are easy to make and Peter loved it.

*Makes 2 sandwiches

2 eggs
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla
4 slices of bread (thick, whole-wheat bread works great)
cream cheese
2-3 slices deli black forest ham
2 eggs, fried (middles poked and spread out so the eggs lay flat)
2 slices Swiss cheese
powdered sugar
Raspberry Jam (or any jam you like)

Mix eggs, maple syrup, milk, and vanilla together with a fork and pour in a shallow dish. Spread a good amount of cream cheese on each slice of ham (if you have a large slice of ham you may want to fold it over). Add the cream cheese-covered ham, a fried egg, and a slice of Swiss cheese to one slice of bread and top with another slice of bread making a sandwich. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture and turn over so the the entire outside of the sandwich is coated in the egg mixture. Cook on a griddle or in a frying pan (as if you were making French toast). Carefully flip the sandwich when the first side becomes nice and brown (again, like French toast). When both sides of the sandwich are brown and slightly crispy, remove from heat and sprinkle each sandwich with powdered sugar. Cut into halves or fourths and serve with raspberry jam.
