Ham and cheese goes full glam in Rach's recipe, from brioche bread to a dunk into an egg custard for a cheesy, crisp, and puffed twist on a Monte Cristo.
In a shallow dish or bowl, whisk up the eggs, half 'n' half, nutmeg, salt, and sugar.
In a small bowl, combine crème fraîche, yogurt or sour cream with mustard and coat one side of the bread and build sandwiches of evenly distributed cheese and ham. Cut sandwiches into 2 triangles.
Preheat griddle or large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Melt butter, coat sandwiches in egg custard and cook slowly 4 halves, 2 sandwiches at a time on all sides in melted butter to golden and puffed. Keep warm in low oven. Serve with pickles and jam of choice.
