  1. 1⁄2 cup butter, softened and divided
  2. 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  3. 6 (1⁄2-inch-thick) slices challah bread
  4. 3⁄4 pound thinly sliced deli black forest ham
  5. 3 slices Muenster cheese
  6. 3 large eggs
  7. 1⁄4 cup whole milk
  8. Garnish: confectioners’ sugar
  1. In a small bowl, stir together 1⁄4 cup butter and mustard. Spread mixture onto 1 side of each bread slice. Divide ham evenly among 3 bread slices. Top each with 1 slice cheese. Cover each with remaining bread slices, butter side down.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs and milk. In a large skillet, melt remaining 1⁄4 cup butter over medium heat. Dip both sides of each sandwich into egg mixture, letting excess drip off. Cook sandwiches in skillet for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired. Serve immediately.
