  • Nuts Free Diet

    It is usually followed when someone is allergic to nuts.


  • Place a frying pan over medium-low heat.
  • Spread the sandwich bread slices on your working surface. For each sandwich, you will need 3 bread slices.
  • Spread each bread slice with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise and divide the cheese among them. Add the ham to 2 bread slices of each sandwich.
  • Place each bread slice with the ham on top of the other, without the ham slices touching each other, and cover with the bread slice that has the cheese. Press very well so that the ingredients stick together and cut the crust all around the bread slices.
  • In a bowl add the eggs, the milk, the paprika, salt, pepper, and mix well.
  • Transfer the sandwiches to a baking pan and pour the egg mixture over them. Flip the sandwiches over to absorb the whole mixture.

Cook for 2-3 minutes and then, flip them over. Wipe the pan and add another 1 tablespoon butter. Cook them in the same way, for 2-3 more minutes.
  • Remove and serve with potato chips.
