Potato Bread


8 Slices Potato Bread

1/2 Cup Mayonnaise

1/2 Cup Whole Cranberry Sauce

1 Cup Fontina Cheese, grated

8 Slices Turkey, Cooked

1 Cup Baby Arugula

3 Eggs, Lightly Beaten

1/3 Cup Whole Milk

1 Pinch Nutmeg

2 Tablespoons Butter, (or solid shortening)

Serves: 4


Step 1

Lay the 4 slices of the bread out on a cutting board. On each slice, spread 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 2 tablespoons of cranberry sauce.

Step 2

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the fontina, followed by 2 slices of the turkey on half of each sandwich.

Step 3

Divide the arugula among the sandwiches and sprinkle each sandwich with 2 more tablespoons of fontina over the arugula. Top with final bread slice and press down firmly to seal in the filling.

Step 4

In a large casserole dish, beat the eggs, milk and nutmeg.

Step 5

In a large skillet over medium heat, add the butter. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, coating both sides.

Step 6

When butter is melted and foamy in the skillet, add the sandwiches and cook on each side until golden brown.

Step 7

Remove from pan, drain on paper towels and rest for a few minutes. Cut in half and serve.
