Cozy Food Friday!

I want to share something different that will be a fun twist on an everyday staple . . . Sandwiches.
How am I going to make them different? How about . . .

  1.    Preheat the oven to 350-degrees then butter and flour a loaf pan. Set aside.
  2.    In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3.    In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the eggs and then add the milk. Whisk together.
  4.    Using a baking spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until mostly combined. Do not overmix. Next, lightly fold in the ham and cheese.
  5.    Transfer batter to the prepared loaf pan. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6.    Let the bread cool in the pan roughly 5 minutes, then remove from pan and place on a cooling rack. Before removing from the pan, run a knife along the edges to release the loaf. 
  7.    Allow the bread to cool about 45 minutes before serving.

You can eat this bread as is. 
I love using it for a tasty upgrade to egg salad sandwich! 
My mom would have loved a nice ripe tomato between two slices.  
There are a lot of uses during these hot summer days.
But you know me. I love winter. Think of this bread toasted and covered in butter and or jam!
Of using it for French toast. Or with over easy eggs. Letting the yolks be absorbed by the bread. 

Okay. Enough of that. I have got to go get something to eat. This has made me very hungry!
