Serving brunch to your bunch is a breeze when you prepare these sandwiches the night before. They combine the flavor of grilled ham and cheese (plus a little zip from Dijon mustard) with the puffy texture of French toast. —Carolyn Herfkens Crysler, Ontario

"So this is a great recipe that you can mess with. You can use turkey or bacon, fruit or different veggies.love itmy only qualm is this: the egg mixture did not cover all of the bottom of the sandwhiches. Maybe next time i will increase the egg mixture."
