4 Tbsp. honey mustard

8 slices SALT FREE multi-grain bread. (We used Alvarado Street Bakery no salt Sprouted Multi-grain found in the organic foods section of the supermarket.)

8 slices reduced fat swiss cheese - .75 oz. per slice
(We used Sargento Deli Style Reduced Fat swiss.)

12 slices smoked ham - approx. 1.5 oz. per slice
(We used Oscar Mayer Smoked Ham 96% Fat Free.)

1/4 Cup soy milk
(We used Edensoy Vanilla.)

3 large egg whites

1 large whole egg

4 Tbsp. seedless Sugar Free raspberry jam
(We used Smuckers Sugar Free Raspberry Jam.)

2 tsp. powdered sugar

Fat-free cooking spray

This recipe is higher in cholesterol. To cut the cholesterol in half, simply substitute one egg white for the whole egg. If you are looking to reduce sodium, use only 2 slices of ham instead of 3.

1. Spread 1/2 Tbsp. honey mustard on each slice of bread.

2. Place 3 slices of ham on each of 4 bread slices. Place 2 slices of swiss cheese on top of the ham. Top the 4 slices of bread that have ham and cheese with the remaining 4 slices of bread, putting the honey mustard side down.

3. Mix milk and eggs in a shallow dish. Dip both sides of each sandwich into egg/milk mixture.

4. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat and coat with fat-free cooking spray. Cook sandwiches for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. For best results, place lid on top of pan to fully melt cheese while cooking.

5. Spread 1 Tbsp. seedless raspberry jam on top of each sandwich and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. powdered sugar.

FREEZER NOTE: Do not put the raspberry jam or powdered sugar on top of the sandwiches if you intend to freeze them. Only put it on after you have re-heated them in a microwave and they are ready to eat.

Yield: 4 Servings
