  • Little Bit Of Milk



You’re going to need very basic ingredients but get good quality because it makes a difference this is just white sandwich bread. I prefer a white sandwich bread over any other bread for this it’s just what I prefer so that’s what I’m using I also have some deli roasted turkey and this is some shredded Gouda. you can use sliced gouda or some Swiss if, you want to I’m choosing shred excited
melt easier. I’ve got some whole milk some mayo and some just prepared mustard too some yellow mustard, butter, eggs and some seasoned salt. I also have some vegetable oil here in my pant. I’m gonna get that in the skillet so, that it’s ready and out of the way now,I am ready to get everything kind of assembled. you want to make your custard first. what you’re gonna dip the sandwich in and that is just the eggs the seasoned salt if,you don’t have seasoned salt just use salt and pepper and then just a pinch of paprika.


I’m gonna add a little bit of milk and I’m gonna whisk these together just to combine now. you this amount of liquid this amount of batter will make more than two sandwiches but for right now, I’m
going to show you two and then. I’ll use the remaining four a couple more so, get that really mixed well great set that aside mix together your mayo and prepared yellow mustard.I like a little bit of mayo some people don’t put any. I don’t think it adds a lovely little note of almost something tangy and I love the yellow mustard in there I think it’s must for me and just keep in mind this is just my version of this classic just give that a really good mix okay and once. you have those ready you are ready to assemble. your sandwich now some people just do two pieces of bread now.


I like the little crunch from it take some of your mayo and mustard mixture you do not need a whole lot you need maybe like a teaspoon or so and you do that on two slices of bread like this then on the first slice you must start with the cheese.we’re starting with the cheese because the cheese it’s.. what’s gonna help the same witch stay together on both sides so so one slice here a little bit of cheese and you can of course use sliced cheese it is a little bit easier but,I just think melted a shredded melts a little bit better so, that’s. why I’m using my own shredded Gouda so, you’ve got your cheese at the base. you top that with your turkey because now.what you’re doing is the bread is gonna stick to the cheese because this cheese is gonna melt.


I’m hoping that that makes sense a couple slices of turkey it really all depends on how big your slices of Turkey are these are quite gigantic so, I’m just kind of wrapping them up so, you got that right
then you take this baby and repeat kind of the same thing you repeat it but take just a little bit just see. you look a little bit of the cheese a little bit like a teaspoon or so, this time however. You’re gonna start with first because the cheese is what’s gonna help the top stay on am. I making sense you just watch this time you start with the turkey like so and you can use ham here. you could use him and Turkey. I prefer the turkey I think ham goes with a croque monsieur it’s myself fancy.

5Today okay and then the cheese was on top of the turkey because the cheese it’s what’s gonna help the top layer of the bread stick on when it’s all melted together and heated it’s perfection and I
just like to do a little teeny tiny tiny bit more of the mustard and mayo just like that not a lot like so that’s how,I like it that one I’m ensuring that the cheese is holding everything together give it all just a gentle press kind of tuck everything in and you have one done we’re gonna do another one and then. we’ll get them cooking got my second sandwich assembled and now it’s time to cook them.some people like to put them in the fridge at this point once they’re assembled they like to put them in the fridge to set for a bit. I just don’t think that’s necessary to be honest with you this is just a kicked-up grilled cheese so, I don’t do that I mean. I don’t if it doesn’t really make that much of a difference.I skip the next step that’s just kind of how. I roll in cooking and in life i’ve got my vegetable oil here heating up over about medium heat I’m gonna add my butter these need to cook in a good amount of fat because they give the beautiful color and texture.


You’re looking for so don’t skimp on that it’s very important and I do about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter because, I love the buttery flavor mixed with the egg from
the outside of the bread if, that makes sense and I don’t want to get this too high. I don’t want the heat to be too high. I want the heat to be about medium because if, it’s any hotter what what
happened is the outside will get cooked really quickly and the inside won’t be fully cooked yet and the cheese won’t be fully melted so, medium heat works perfectly this is looking good the butter is a melting so, by the time the butter is melted. I’m ready to add my sandwich and this is how it goes it’s really simple and really really easy. you take your sandwich. you use a shallow bowl you dip it on both sides in the egg mixture and it soaks up the bread it slips up the mixture pretty quickly and then you put it right in give it a little pat down and then you just let them cook for a good three to four minutes on each side and i’ll show you what they look like when they’re done and if they smell already incredible it’s amazing and look how much that custard it soaks up look at that. I know I know I know what you’re thinking what you’re thinking is that third slice just made it..
