8 slices bacon, thick cut
8 sliced bread
8 slices deli ham
8 slices cheese
1/4 cup milk
salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 400°.
Lay bacon on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or
until done. Remove from oven, transfer to newspaper lined paper
towels. Lay out 8 slices of bread. Lightly coat each slice
with butter. Lay a slice of cheese on each slice of bread. Place a
slice of ham on top of each slice of cheese. Cut bacon in half and
place 4 halves on each sandwich. Put the bottom sandwich half onto the
top sandwich half.
Wrap the sandwich tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least
30 minutes to 1 hour. Combine the eggs and
milk in a bowl. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Once the griddle
is hot enough to scatter a drop of water, brush with softened butter. Unwrap the sandwiches and dip in the egg batter (one at a time), to
coat evenly. Gently place it on the griddle, and fry. Turn once and
then cover with a bowl until golden brown and hot, about 5 minutes total. Using
caution, remove the bowl with a spatula and use an oven mitt to protect
from the heat.
