3 tbsp granulated sugar

1-1/3 c whole milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

French Toast Batter

Beat eggs with sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly add milk, stirring gently.

Stir in vanilla and Amaretto.

Cover and refrigerate.


Spread about 1 teaspoon mustard on one side of each slice of bread. Top each piece with 1 slice cheese.

Layer 4 pieces bread with 2 ounces sliced ham and the remaining 4 pieces bread with 2 ounces sliced turkey.

Turn and stack pieces with ham and turkey sides together -- to make 4 sandwiches.


Dip each sandwich in batter and turn to coat both sides. Allow excess batter to drain back into bowl.

Cook sandwiches on a hot griddle or in a large preheated skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, turning once, until lightly browned on both sides.

Cut into thirds; sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve with reserved Raspberry sauce on the side.
