They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This gem of a breakfast sandwich not only lives up to “most important meal of the day” status, it also combines just about everything you love into a veritable smorgasbord of breakfasty deliciousness. You will not be disappointed.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
8 eggs*
8 medium-thick slices of bread (such as brioche or challah)
4 slices of fully cooked ham*
8 slices Cooper® Sharp White cheese
8 pieces bacon, cooked to a crisp*
2 tablespoons butter
maple syrup (for dipping)

DIRECTIONS

Combine milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and four of the eggs into a bowl. Beat well.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet on medium-high heat. One at a time, dunk your bread slices into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides. Place in a medium pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove browned bread slices from the pan and set aside.

In the same pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. One at a time, fry 4 eggs over easy. Remove them from the pan and set aside.

Fry the ham slices in a skillet for 1-2 minutes per side on low heat, until warm and a little crisp on the sides.

Assemble sandwiches:

Place one of the fried eggs on a slice of French toast. Top the egg with 1 slice of ham and 2 slices of bacon. Cap the whole thing off with another slice of French toast. Repeat for the remaining sandwiches. The sandwiches can be warmed to melt the Cooper® cheese if desired. Pour yourself and your guests a dipping bowl of maple syrup.

Then prepare yourself. This could well be the tastiest breakfast you’ve had in quite some time, so savor the moment. Maybe even Instagram it.
