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


  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 12 slices bread
  • 6 slices fully cooked ham
  • 12 slices cheddar or Swiss cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Spread mustard on one side of six slices of bread. Layer the ham, cheese and tomato over mustard; top with remaining bread. Butter the outsides of the sandwiches; cut in half. Arrange in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and pepper; pour over sandwiches. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
