Instructions


  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup orange marmalade and 2 tablespoons butter. Spread 4 slices of bread with the mixture. Spread the remaining 4 slices of bread with Dijon mustard. Assemble each sandwich accordingly: 1 slice of cheese, 3 slices of ham, and 1 slice of cheese. Top with bread and press down lightly. Butter both sides of sandwiches with additional 4 tablespoons of butter and set aside

  2. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining 3/4 cup of marmalade. Stir to smooth, cover, and keep warm

  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and salt. Carefully dip one sandwich in egg mixture and allow to soak for 10 to 15 seconds. Turn and soak for another 10 to 15 seconds. Transfer sandwich to cooling rack and set aside. Repeat the process with remaining sandwiches

  4. Heat 1/4 cup oil and 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry 2 sandwiches at a time, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to the cutting board. If the skillet is dry, add remaining 1/4 cup oil and remaining 2 tablespoons butter and repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches

  5. Cool sandwiches 2 minutes, then cut in half, dust with confectioners’ sugar and top with warm orange marmalade
