Start to finish: 1 hour 30 minutes
Inactive time: 1 hour
Serves: 4-6 (Makes 6 sandwiches)

12 slices sliced country bread
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup French mayonnaise

Spread 6 slices of bread with mustard and the remaining 6 slices with mayonnaise. Layer each sandwich, beginning with a slice of mustard bread, then two slices cheddar cheese, then one slice prosciutto, and top with the mayonnaise bread. Repeat to make 6 sandwiches. Cut sandwiches diagonally in half. Place the sandwich triangles into the ovenproof dish.

Beat together the eggs, salt, nutmeg and milk. Then, pour the mixture over the sandwiches, tightly packed in the dish. Cover the dish with cling film and let it soak for one hour.

Preheat the oven to 400F. Sprinkle entire dish with the grated Gruyere. Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.
