    1. Use 2 tablespoons of the butter to spread over one side of each slice of bread. On three of the slices, spread a layer of Dijon mustard over the butter and top each with 4 slices of ham. On the other three, spread mayonnaise and top each one with 2 slices of Gruyere cheese. Press ham and cheese sides of sandwiches together.
    2. In a flat bottomed dish, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, eggs and water until blended. Set aside.
    3. Heat remaining butter and vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg mixture and fry in the oil and butter until browned, flipping to brown on each side.
