SaTuRdAy SuRpRiSe - Cloud Sandwiches
So sorry I have been remiss in my blogging, but things have been busy here in the Midwest! I have been smack-dab in the middle of a kitchen re-do and progress has been very time consuming. I hope to be better at making regular posts in the near future...
As I was taking a break from painting, I picked up my copy of "The Farmer's Cookbook" (1981)and decided to just post the first recipe that I opened to. So here for your taste buds' delight, I am posting "Cloud Sandwiches". This looks to be basically a huge omelet and in my estimation, would serve 2 - 4 people. (Depending on how hungry the people are!)
4 slices bread
butter, as needed
2 slices Swiss or Cheddar cheese
2 slices cooked ham
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
dash of pepper
(I'd add a dash of salt for good measure!)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Trim crust from bread. Butter bread on one side. Place the 2 slices of bread, buttered side down, in a small loaf pan. Top each with cheese, ham and top with the remaining slices of bread. Beat together eggs, milk, mustard and pepper. (Salt, too?) Pour over sandwiches. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes.
I think this sounds great for breakfast, brunch or even for a mid-week supper...
