Moulin Rouge Sandwich

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

This happens to be my 'hentam' recipe (hentam= made up). Hubby was already bored eating the same thing every morning so as i look for something or some leftovers for me to make a sandwich and it turned out i still have the turkey ham i bought last week. took out some cheese and egg and bread. I would usually toast the bread then fried the eggs then assemble everything and make a sandwich. but this time i feel like i want to make something different and just last night i saw the 'chef at home' and he made turkey roast or sumthing with a cranberry sauce and that kindda inspire me to make this yummy treat in the morning...

And since i want my son to eat (my son has suddenly become a very pickky eater) i thought of making french toast... while i'm at it i though i make the sandwich for hubby too so 2 birds with 1 stone...

here's the recipe:
2 pcs bread
1 egg
2pcs turkey ham or breakfast beef or what ever filling you want to use its fine..
2 pcs cheese
cranberry sauce or starwberry jams or marmalade also OK
salt and pepper to taste
a bit of butter for frying

  1. toast the bread before hand.
  2. break the egg and season it with salt and pepper to taste
  3. then dip the toasted bread in the egg and fry as you would for making a french toast
  4. when frying, add the cheese slice then the turkey ham on the top side of the toast. MAKE sure that you are cooking and a med to low heat coz we don't want to burn the toast.
  5. then dip another toast in the egg and add in the sandwich fillings - turkey ham then cheese then the toast and top it ontop of the 1st toast sandwiching it together.
  6. then carefully flip the toast (ahh~ this may take some practice) cook until all done
  7. dust some powdered sugar and serve it with cranberry sauce.( my sauce is out of the jar sauce bought from Ikea) <-- i know i know it sounded wierd putting sweet stuff into a savory dish but being a Kelantanese we love sweet stuff (for God sake we eat curry with sugar!) and i don't think that its that wierd coz the ang mo also eat the turkey with cranberry sauce OK laaa~ =p
the sandwiching action while still frying the toast will make the cheese melt and thus binds all the fillings together yummmmmmmmmm~ hubby loves it! and it may not be good for those whos on diet tho...

I named it moulin Rouge sandwich coz it uses french toast (get it 'french' moulin rouge..?) and it is also serve with something red (rouge means red) aka the cranberry sauce altho there's no winmill involved in this recipe...=p oh yeah and also Astro was playing this movie when i was making this ^_^
