|24 min.||14 min.||38 min.|
|1||Cut 4 slices bread fairly thick. This is a good way to use up bread that has started to go dry.
Split each slice horizontally, but without cutting all the way through, to form a "pocket".
|2||Chop the parsley and coriander .||3 min.|
|3||Mix the chopped herbs with 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs, salt and pepper.
Cover and refrigerate until needed.
|4||In a frying pan, fry 4 slices ham lightly on both sides.||6 min.|
|5||Fill each slice of bread with a slice of ham and slices of cheese (Comté shown here).||3 min.|
|6||In a bowl beat 4 eggs briefly with 50 g liquid cream, salt and pepper.||2 min.|
|7||Pour the beaten eggs into a shallow dish and put the egg and breadcrumb mixture in another.||3 min.|
|8||Dip both sides of the sandwiches first in the beaten egg...||3 min.|
|9||...then in the breadcrumb coating.
Prepare all the sandwiches like this.
|10||Pour 50 g butter and 4 tablespoons oil into a large frying pan on medium heat.
When hot, lay the sandwiches in the pan and cook until golden brown on the first side.
|11||You can turn the heat down at this stage and cover the pan with a sheet of aluminium foil for 2 or 3 minutes to help melt the cheese, but this is not essential if you are using a soft-paste cheese (see below for more about this).|
|12||When the underneath is nicely browned, turn the sandwiches over and cook the other side.||4 min.|
|13||Serve piping hot.|
