Turkey Leftovers Part III

Turkey Monte Cristo Sandwiches
adapted from

4 slices sandwich bread
1 tablespoons honey mustard
1/2 pound sliced turkey
1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 eggs, beaten
1/8 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter, divided
1/4 cup strawberry or raspberry jelly (if you have leftover cranberry sauce this will work too)
Powdered sugar for dusting

  1. Spread one side of 2 bread slices with mustard. Top remaining 2 slices with turkey. Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over turkey and close sandwiches, mustard side down.
  2. In a shallow dish or bowl combine the eggs, milk and nutmeg and mix well. Melt 1/2 the butter in a large skillet or on a griddle over medium heat. Dip one sandwich in egg mixture, turning to coat. Let excess egg mixture drip into dish or bowl, and place sandwich in hot skillet. Cook until golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat with second sandwich.
  3. Dust each sandwich with powdered sugar. Serve with jelly or cranberry sauce.
