4 servings


  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 6 large eggs 
  • 8 slices white Pullman bread 
  • 4 tablespoons butter 
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 1 pound cured ham, thinly sliced 
  • 16 strips cooked bacon
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese 


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Whisk together the half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs. Dip the bread into the batter and let soak for 1 minute.

In a large pan over medium heat, add the butter and grapeseed oil. Add the soaked bread to the pan and fry on both sides until golden brown. Remove to a baking sheet and brush with maple syrup

Divide the ham, bacon and cheese among four of the bread slices, top with the remaining bread and place in the oven; the sandwiches are done when the cheese has melted, about 4 minutes.
