Have you had a Monte Cristo before? Well, this is kinda like that but different. 😉
I love egg sandwiches, so I’m always looking for new ways to make them. This was really easy to make, and it will “WOW” company, or maybe just your family.
Trader Joe’s has really yummy brioche, and I bought some. It just made sense to make french toast with it, but I’m not a big fan of french toast. I mean, I am. But I trick myself into not liking it because I really have no self-control with any type of bread. So, I’m not a fan of it, and that’s my story.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 slices thick-sliced brioche
half & half
thinly sliced turkey
2 slices cheese of choice, I used American
powdered sugar, if desired
syrup, if desired
Here’s what I did:
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and melt a tab of butter. Scramble 1 egg with a bit of half & half, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a few drops of vanilla. Coat both sides of the brioche and add to the warm skillet. Cook about 3 minutes on one side, over medium heat, and then flip. (At this point, I added my turkey to the skillet to warm up because I think cold meat on a warm sandwich is disgusting. I just kept it to the side of the french toast while it finished cooking.)
Once you flip the toast, crack your remaining egg into an egg pan that’s been warmed with some melted butter. Cook until set and then flip. Check your toast, and flip one more time, lay cheese slices–on each side of the bread, turkey on each side, and remove to a plate. Lightly salt the egg while it’s still in the pan and then transfer on top one of the bread slices.
Close sandwich and sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle syrup. Enjoy!
