French toast sandwiches stuffed with cheese and cold meat slices like ham make a perfect breakfast or lunch. 


  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 4 sliced white bread

  • 4 slices ham or Turkish style bacon called pastrami (or any cold meat slices you like)

  • 4 slices mozzarella or cheddar or gruyere cheese

  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Prepare the bread slices: Soak the bread slices into this mixture. Make sure they are well coated.

  2. Make French toasts: Melt ½ tablespoon of the butter in a non-stick pan. Place two of the egg and milk mixture coated bread slices into the pan. Fry both sides for a minute. Don’t let them cook completely. Transfer them onto a plate. Melt ½ tablespoon butter in the pan and repeat the same steps for the remaining two bread slices. 

  3. Make Sandwiches: Melt the remaining butter in the pan. Place two half-fried bread slices in the pan. Put 2 slices of cheese and 2 slices pastrami or ham on each slice. Place the other two bread slices on these. Fry until brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side or until the cheese melts. Press down with a spatula firmly when frying.

  4. Serve immediately.


  • When making the French toasts, don't fry them completely. We are going to give them a second cooking after turning them into a sandwich. So just cook the bread slices partly.
  • Alternatively, you can make your sandwich first and dip it into egg and milk mixture and then fry in the pan.
