Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


In a small bowl whisk together all ingredients. Set aside.
Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Place one slice of ham, turkey and cheese on each of 4 bread slices. Top with a spoonful of sauce. Place remaining bread slices on top to complete sandwiches.
Melt butter in skillet. Once hot, dip assembled sandwiches in egg mixture turning to coat. Place on skillet and cook until golden. Flip and continue cooking until remaining side is golden and cheese is melted.
Remove from heat, slice diagonally in half, and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar if desired. Serve with dipping sauce.
