James Beard's Croque Monsieur (1940)

"Slice brioche in slices about one-eighth of an inch thick. 

"Spread with butter, and on half on them, put a thin slice each of ham, chicken, and Switzerland Swiss cheese. Cover with another piece of brioche, dip in beaten egg and milk as you would for French toast, and saute quickly in butter till nicely browned on both sides.  

"Serve very hot."
