french toasted cheese sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) butter softened
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 6 oz (180 g) Canadian Medium Cheddar cheese thinly sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup (180 mL) Milk
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) butter

Preparation

Combine mustard and butter and lightly spread on each slice of bread. Make sandwiches with the cheese slices. Press bread together firmly.

Beat eggs with milk in a large dish and dip sandwiches into the mixture. Allow bread to soak up mixture.

Heat butter in a large skillet (sandwiches may have to be cooked in batches) and cook sandwiches until well browned on both sides and cheese is melting in the centre. Serve hot.
