Just thought of sharing Rachel Ray's delicious recipe and it only take 15mins to make or less for some...
8 slices bacon
3 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk or reduced fat milk
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons prepared Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons butter
8 slices good-quality white bread, hand sliced
3/4 cup cranberry sauce, homemade or store-bought
12 thin slices roasted or smoked turkey breast
8 thin slices Emmentaler Swiss cheese
12 bread-and-butter pickle slices
Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
Bake the bacon on a slotted pan to crisp, 12-14 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and mustard. Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat.
Pre-heat a nonstick griddle pan over medium heat.
Build sandwiches of cranberry sauce, turkey, bacon, Swiss cheese and pickles. Coat in the egg batter.
Liberally brush a griddle with the melted butter and cook the sandwiches until golden and warmed through – use a loose foil tent to help melt the cheese. Brush the pan with more butter, as needed.
