Hawaiian French-Toast Sandwich

Yield 4 servings
This sweet and savory dish is nice with a green salad or carrot sticks. Our kid testers thought it was a neat switch from classic French toast.

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup fat-free milk
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 slices white, sourdough, or challah bread
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 8 oz sliced low-sodium ham
  • 8-oz can crushed pineapple, drained

How to Make It

  1. Prep time: 5 minutes
    Cooking time: 15 minutes

    Heat oven to 400 degrees.

    Whisk eggs and milk in a shallow bowl.

    Heat large skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat.

    Dip 4 bread slices in egg mixture; cook 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove from skillet; repeat with remaining 4 slices.

    Thinly spread 4 slices with mustard; top each with 1/4 of the ham and pineapple. Cover with remaining slices.

    Place sandwiches on a baking sheet; heat in oven, about 3 minutes.

    How kids can help: Whisk eggs and milk; spread mustard; assemble sandwiches.

    TIP: You can swap smoked turkey for ham.
