Ingredients
  • 1   slice 
    white, whole wheat, or raisin bread

    eggs

    milk

  • 1   slice 
    Swiss or other cheese
  •  
    Avocado slice (optional)

Directions
1.
Cut a hole 2-1/2 or 3 inches in diameter from the center of bread slice. Reserve center round. In a small shallow flat dish combine one of the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Dip bread slice and center round in egg mixture.
