Monte Cristo Sandwiches

4 slices potato bread
4 slices swiss cheese
2 thin slices turkey
2 thin slices ham
3 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1 T. unsalted butter
1 T. extra-virgin olive oil
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Lay bread slices on work surface. On 2 bread slices, place 1 slice cheese, 1 slice turkey, 1 slice ham, and 1 more slice of cheese; top each with remaining bread slice.

Using a 5-by-4-inch cookie cutter, cut out a sandwich; repeat with remaining ingredients. Set aside.

In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, and salt.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Dip each sandwich in egg mixture to coat well on both sides, and place in skillet. Cook, turning once, until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
